Next Cowboys Coach Discussion

Soooo, after 4 days and counting... who does anyone/everyone think will be the main target for HC??? 

I don't want it to be the big/hot name just for the sake of getting the big/hot name.  

If it ends up being that big name coach, so be it. But, I hope it's only after taking a long, exhaustive search. That's the key as far as I'm concerned. Bring in 15 candidates. 25 candidates. Just get it right

Unfortunately, I don't believe this will be the case.

I don’t have a huge problem with Zimmer.  I think a few of his defenses overachieved over the years.  But, I do think it’s stupid to trade for him to be a DC.

Well, yeah. The discussion about Zimmer is based on the potential that he might get fired in Minny...

I'm not totally sure I agree that a process of interviewing everybody who is anybody is going to get you the right candidate.

If the Cowboys are doing things right (which, admittedly, is a big "if"), they should have a pretty good idea of the candidates who make some sense already. Spend time really getting to know those guys and their visions. Be intentional about it.

I’ll say this. If we spend 4 days meeting about a coach on his way out we best not hire a guy who winks at us a day into interviews.

I would love McCarthy. He’s an offensive nosed guy and he is Someone who will command respect and discipline

Lewis would be a disaster hire as a HC. As a DC, count me in.

McCarthy, I'm meh on. Maybe a year away did him some good...but he never seemed all that concerned with putting out a good defense and how much of his success was because of Aaron Rodgers?

Rivera would have been best for the defense but at this point, the offense needs a fix as well. McCarthy can finally be a coach with two SB wins on two different teams. I don’t think Lewis will be a good D coordinator so we are stuck with Richard unless another team hires him. Kellen Moore probably out unless he has an actual plan for the offense.

Why? His Ravens defense won the Super Bowl in 2000, and his defenses with Washington and Cincinnati were pretty good as well.

Richard is not under contract and is interviewing with other teams. One name I read linked to McCarthy for DC is Mike Nolan (LB coach, NOLA). I know back in the day a lot of you were very high on him.

I meant I don’t think Lewis will come back as a D coordinator. In like Nolan. Lot of experience.

During his sabbatical, McCarthy put together a group of coaches, including Jim Haslett, Frank Cignetti Jr (Ben McAdoo's quarterbacks coach with the Giants), and Scott McCurley.

At least McCarthy would be a little more ballsy than Garrett

This reminds me of a quote from the movie Road Trip: “It's supposed to be a challenge, it's a shortcut! If it were easy it would just be the way.”

But I think we are getting to the point in football where this type of thing shouldn’t be considered ballsy, anymore. It should just be “the way”.
