Head coaches with no previous experience

Which coaches?  Which years?  Which teams sucked when they took over?

Yeah but by this criteria, which coaches of any background, experience or not, took over a bad team and won a Super Bowl?

You can't even list Belichick because the Pats were good under Parcells.

The original post reminds of the guy deciding to sit down at the street side cafe, having a couple of drinks. A couple of drinks, in , his eyes begin to wander and he starts gazing at some of the people as they walk by:

"Look at that blonde there with the short miniskirt. I knew a girl that had that same miniskirt. She was a slut. That girl is a slut".

"Look at that guy with that limp in his gait. I knew a friend that walked like that and he had muscular dystrophy. That guy has muscular dystrophy". 

"Look at that guy walking out of the bank. That rich mothereffer has money to burn and he is not sharing it with anyone". 

Personally, I have no idea who the Jets may hire, nor what his background will be. I do know that he will be different than any other coach the jets have hired. That is easy to say, because they are ALL different. I do hope the slutty blonde takes a look at us, because we are pretty dog ugly right now. My hope is that this new coach can get us to a level of respectability at this point. That is what happens to teams before they are Super Bowl contender worthy. That would be a great start. And, if that coach can not get us over the hump, then we move on. 

You have to start somewhere.

His name is Matt Rhule...oh wait....

Maybe Pat Fitzgerald?  Todd Monken?  

I dunno, somebody who has won some football games as a head coach instead of a guy with 4 years as a DC, two of which were among the worst in the NFL?

I feel like you are trying to make fetch happen with Monken. Why has nobody else hired him? He has been fired as an offensive coordinator several times.

I don't think every guy who would make  a good head coach is currently a head coach.  Sometimes the owners get it wrong.

But I get it.  Time for optimism.  Ignore the results and tell ourselves Saleh is finally the one.

Why would we tell ourselves that the guy who hasn't been hired yet is the one?

I don't tell people to be optimistic. I just don't have a problem if they hire a coordinator with no head coaching experience. That is more of a home run swing, and I support it if they go that route. Because that means he hasn't failed as a head coach yet.

Totally long shot but I still think it is possible to hire a 41 year old coach and have him coach here for 30 years!

He might be the greatest head coach in NFL history.  We just have no idea what to expect because he's never done it before.  No idea why owners are so averse to experienced coaches, but maybe they'll guess right this time.

Well that is a general statement. I believe the owners here are adverse because of $.

Me personally? Bill Cowher would have been the coach I would have gone after.
