Wade Phillips is available......

You jest, but a Klint Kubiak OC / Wade Phillips DC combo wouldn't be the least bit crazy with how much influence dad Gary has in that org right now.

Call it DEN 2015 north.

Was he fired, or was the contract up? 

*Side note - I kind of feel like if I were a coach, I would not want to work for Mike Zimmer.

I certainly would rent, not buy, if I was a coordinator working for Zimmer.

Two OC's have been promoted to HC under his short tenure. His longtime DC (George Edwards) is now in a position to call his own defense somewhere. Before Zimmer, his two most recent stints included being fired to make way for Dave freaking Wannesdet and being a LB coach.

 

No assistant has not tremendously improved their value under him.

Klint Kubiak and Adam Zimmer have a shot to prove their worth too!

How big of a loss'/effect will it have? Doesn't Zimmer call plays and do much of the defensive gameplanning?

Zimmer calls the defense, I'm sure Edwards was in charge of, or had a huge part in, developing the gameplan.

It's the Kubiak special - nepotism, buddy up and coach Football.

How is young Klint doing?
