2013 Browns Coaching Candidates
Who do you want or see coaching for the Browns next season?
The number one thing for me is I'd like to see this offense stay in place. Surest route to ruining a new QB is throwing different systems at them every other year-and Weeden doesn't have as long as an ordinary new QB. That means retaining Childress as OC and ruling out an offensive minded HC. At this point in his career I think Chilly will be fine being an OC for the foreseeable future. For a defensive-minded coach this ought to be a pretty attractive position in that the key parts on offense are already in place. Of the defensive oriented coaches that should get a shot at a HC after the season, #1 on my list right now is Ray Horton.
It's interesting to debate whether Banner/Haslem will look for a proven guy or a first time HC. Cowher is only 3 yrs older then Horton, unbelievably, and if he's finally serious about getting back in, I think this is a good situation for him. He's made some public comments on Fox this season praising the Browns and Weeden.
Defensively, Horton or Cowher mean going back to a 34 but we've definitely got the interior line depth for it and many of our key guys are familiar with the scheme. Switching back, our front 7 depth chart would look something like:
DE Athyba Rubin - Frostee Rucker
NT John Hughes - Ishmaa'ily Kitchen
DE Phil Taylor - Billy Winn
RILB Gocong - Michael -Johnson
LOLB Sheard - Stephens
That's a lot to work with upfront and the upcoming draft has a bunch of highly rated DE/OLB to choose from.[Jarvis Jones - Dion Jordan - Damontre Moore - Bark Mingo - Corey Lemonier] My preference though, if it was a defensive coach, would be to finish out the offense by taking the beast that is Keenan Allen and not have to worry about that side of the ball for the next five years. Right now, the only vet FA WR I'd take over Allen would be Bowe.
The DC is almost as important. First choice would be San Fran DL coach Jim Tomsula.
Share your thoughts.
..yes, this sig is a little embarrassing right now...but it's like my penance
