Tony Dungy, Bruce Arians or Nick Saban anyone?

Letting it be known that the Jets are interested in Harbaugh says that the calculus has (finally!) changed in Florham Park.  I don't think they are willing to settle for a virtual unknown coordinator.  They are going to make a splash this offseason, one way or another.  When Harbaugh rebuffs them, I think the Johnsons go after another big name.  Despite being a defensive minded coach, I wouldn't be surprised if they speak to Tony Dungy.  To me, Dungy makes a lot of sense.  He's got a SB ring, tons of respect around the league and is a total no-nonsense guy.   He would also be able to hire top notch assistants.  I think the players would rejoice if he were to take over.

If Cleveland sticks with Gregg Williams, it also wouldn't surprise me if Chris contacts Bruce Arians.  There may be some bad blood after his former DC gets fired, but money talks.  He's another guy with gravitas around the league and will be liked by his players.  Is it just me or does Arians not sound like David Cone?

If they look at very high profile college coaches, of course Nick Saban will be considered.  Despite what Steve! Serby!!! says, Lincoln Riley is not the guy to lead this team.  He doesn't have the reputation around the league the others have and I just don't think he's the type of guy to lead them out of the wilderness.

Dungy and Arians would both work well with Maccagnan certainly more so than Harbaugh.  Saban would want full control of player decisions which could leave Mac doing what he does best, make trades.

I think it's going to be a wild ride but the Jets are going to be very quick and decisive with this decision.

Saban will never come to the NFL, quit kidding yourself. He'll retire with Alabama. 

 

Would rather look at more realistic options. Hell, give me Bill O'Brien as the OC, Gary Patterson as the DC (would never happen), and Mike Leach as the head coach. Yes, I said it.

Someone’s been hitting the eggnog a bit too hard!

merry Christmas everyone!

Seriously, nice to see fellow Jet fans starting their Christmas celebration early - Tony Dungy?  Is this 2004?

If it was up to Saban or Harbough, Id rather have Saban, but i can't see either of them leaving for the Jets.  Dave Toub, LaFleur, and Dan Campbell are three guys Id like to see interviewed quickly

Arians reportedly wouldn’t take the job because of his closeness with Bowles. Arians was Todd’s college coach, DC at Arizona and they are personally tight. The best coach in football is either Saban or Belichick but hard to believe Saban would come here unless he got a percentage of the team and that’s not happening.

Nick Saban has proven that when he gets to recruit every top player at every position he usually wins a title. That's not how it works in the NFL. 

Not suggesting Saban isn't a great coach, but there is no reason to think that it will translate to the NFL when he has to deal with a draft and salary cap.

Tony Dungy? Are you serious?  I am sure that he has ZERO interest in returning to the NFL. The grind of being a Head Coach and the pressure would kill him.   It's much easier being a highly -paid  pompous, "Ivory-tower observer".  Secondly, his time has passed, Is this another version of the Bill Cower/John Gruden/Brian Billick redux?  Besides, he was backsliding when he left the first time. The game has changed,  let aged, broken, sleeping dogs lie,  Nick Saban has done a nice job, given the #1  recruiting class in College Football on a year-in, year-out basis.  Wonder how he would fare with a level playing field?  I have a feeling the NFL would knock him down a few notches. Bruce Arians left of a good  situation when he "Retired" from the Cardinals job.  Pretty sure he wants no part of a near total rebuild with the Jets. An inquiry would be in order, but I would prefer someone who actively wants the job and is excited for it.  Who that is I don't know but I guess we'll see moving forward.  Just no  ancient retreads please, because they're "Experienced"

C'mon, is not either. It's definitely Belicheck. It's not even close, honestly. He could take even the Jets to a Superbowl. Without Brady, they're still title contenders. Without Bill, they're perennial bottom-dwellers. Not knocking Brady, but Bill is far more important. Hate the Pats with a passion, but as a coach, I study Bill more than I study anyone else.

No to all.

Dungy is out of touch (listen to him on tv)

Arians thunks todd bowles is a genius therefor arians is dumb.

Saban could not deal with NFL players who are not young and hungry and not yet tainted by fame and fortune.

Agreed plus ain't no way Nick is leaving Bama.
