Now that Pettine is gone, who should be the new DC?


Recommended Posts

Someone youngish, has his hair, booming voice, shuns conspiracy theories, will not wilt in the face of pressure or adversity, is NOT a retread, and for that matter, the word “retread” can NOT be anagrammed in his first, middle, or last name.

We’ve got as many options as we have threads on the subject so who knows.  

I wonder if Jeremy Pruitt heads to the NFL esp if he lands a show-cause after UT. He’s a better DC than HC and helped put together some tremendous defenses while at Bama. Would love to see some of that aggressiveness on D.

Some one who can show up in big games..

Like Spags.

Who the fucxx cares in regular season. Arod and Matt L will get those 13 wins in regular season with Avg D.

Those who want to win enough to make the playoffs....

Jeremy Pruitt is headed to the NFL as a defensive assistant with the New York Giants

It could be anyone and I hope it’s someone I haven’t heard of because that means LaFleur has his guy in mind. I hope Coach Gray and Coach Smith are part of the answer but if a new guy is brought in, they usually recruit their own personnel.

Dave Merritt https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dave_Merritt  Current DB coach with KC.  was with NYG during the 2007 and 2011 Super Bowls

Kacy Rodgers  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kacy_Rodgers     Current DL coach with TB.  Has some experience with Bill Parcells

I looked into a few options earlier and was looking at some teams with appealing styles of defense and some of the position coaches.

Someone new who wants to be a head coach.

If it’s some failed former head coach I’m right back to leaving.

Right now there are 11 former NFL head coaches serving as coordinators on several teams.  Look at what Todd Bowles is doing in Tampa.

And what are the other 10 doing?

I can list four former head coaches who got fired as coordinator/consultant DCs this year alone.  Schwartz, Capers, Pettine, Nolan.
