Thread: Potential OC options if it's Zac

  1. #1

    Potential OC options if it's Zac

    The amount of potential OC options for Zac is staggering. I will try to break it down here. As I get time I will add the rest of the staff. I put them in order of who I think is most likely.



    My preference would be to have it be someone from the Rams to implement their system here. They don't lack potential candidates. (One thing this shows is we can expect similar guys with tons of OC experience throughout the system---at least I hope)

    1. Shane Waldron, Rams Passing Game Coordinator, TE Coach: https://www.therams.com/team/coaches.../shane-waldron. Inexperienced but knows the Rams offense and could help implement it here. Interviewed for the head coaching role here. McVay allows his assistants to leave and interview if it's for a playcalling position. So all we have to do is let him call plays. Could also coach TE's? 2nd year with the Rams.



    2. Jedd Fisch, Rams Senior Offensive Assistant: https://www.therams.com/team/coaches-roster/jedd-fisch. Lots of recent collegiate experience at Michigan and UCLA and also has an OC stint with the Jags in 2013-2014. Fisch is probably a candidate to replace Taylor as QBs coach. He would come with a year of experience in the Rams offense. First year with the Rams



    3. Aaron Kromer, Rams Run Game Coordinator, OL Coach: https://www.therams.com/team/coaches...r/aaron-kromer. Ohio Native and Miami of Ohio graduate, Kromer was the Bears OC in 2013-2014. 2nd year with the Rams.



    The other obvious one are his family connections. They would be solid fits but wouldn't know the system.

    1. Press Taylor, Eagles QBs Coach: https://www.philadelphiaeagles.com/t...r/press-taylor. He is an up and comer as well. He has been in the Eagles system since 2013 working his way up to QB coach. A great article about the 2 here: https://www.si.com/nfl/2018/12/06/za...s-head-coaches. He is credited with suggesting the Philly Special.



    2. Mike Sherman, Montreal Alouettes Head Coach: https://en.montrealalouettes.com/201...eal-alouettes/. Sherman is Taylor's father in law and was his first coach at Texas AnM. He was the Head Coach for the Packers and an Offensive Coordinator for the Dolphins, Texans and Seahawks.



    His previous head coaches as a player and Coach

    1. Bill Callahan, Redskins OL Coach AHC: https://www.redskins.com/team/coache.../bill-callahan Callahan was Taylor's Head Coach when he was a pretty good QB at Nebraska. He reportedly wants out of his position in Washington. He has been an offensive coordinator with the Cowboys and Raiders and head coach with the Raiders and at Nebraska. Frank Pollack coached with him in Dallas.



    2. Joe Philbin, Packers OC: https://www.packers.com/team/coaches-roster/joe-philbin Philbin ended the year as the Packers Interim Head Coach. He has experience coaching the OL and is interviewing for the Vikings OL job. He was the Head Coach in Miami for the entirety of Taylor's time there.



    Tangential Connections

    1. Darrell Bevell, Ex Vikings and Seahawks OC: Bevell coached under Sherman. He is interviewing for the Jaguars OC job but could have a role as a QBs coach.



    2. John DeFelippo, Ex Vikings and Browns OC: He was the QBs coach before Press in Philly and coached with Callahan on the Jets. He is interviewing for OC jobs but if he didn't get it could get be an option for a QBs coach role.

    I'd throw Bill Lazor out there. I'd say there's a possibility that Taylor could realistically be looking at not naming all of his staff if half the current staff is staying on.

    Lazor is out.

    Looks like Kubiak out in Denver. Add his name to the list for OC.

    Personally I think I want at least one experienced coordinator. Two youngsters at HC and OC seems like trouble to me. I'd love it if they could get Monken here as OC.

    Agree. I want a vet DC.


    Also love that Pollack and Simmons are staying.

    Me as well, although I'd prefer a vet DC... I think they'll be OK on offense. But "established" guys like Jim Bob Cooter and Jim Caldwell are still available, I think. And Monken.

    Seems like a lot of the "name" DCs have already landed - Gregg Williams, Vance Joseph, Wilks (maybe he hasn't landed yet). Would like Kris Richard if he doesn't get the Miami gig but I'm sure Jerry Jones will throw money at him to keep him in Dallas.

    With the ties to Callahan and Philbin and Sherman you have to believe someone is going to be on board who has been an NFL head coach before.

    Coordinator hires are big for young head coaches, and it looks like Bengals front-runner (coach elect?) Zac Taylor is looking at experienced ones. I'm told ex-Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell is high on his list.

    Hope Kubiak becomes an option.
