Do you think if he wanted one, that Peyton Manning could be hired for a HC job similar to John Lynch to GM?

Eventually, but he'd need some experience first.

Yeah, the lineage to his father, experience working on the Patriots staff with Bill Belichick and Dante Scarnecchia, in addition to getting results after four years of being an offensive coordinator. After this season, I think Brian Ferentz will be ready for head coaching. I would love to see him hired by the Kraft's if Belichick were to retire after winning another Super Bowl.

Jim Harbaugh and David Shaw are the only coaches I'd be excited see return to NFL.

Wisconsin is a hotbed for good coaches. In addition to Bret Bielema being mentioned, their current head coach Paul Chryst is an NFL candidate with orevious experience with the Chargers. Jim Leonard is another intriguing coaching prospect but he is very inexperienced. I like Leonard much more than Mike Vrabel as a coach/coordinator, even though Vrabel is a nice guy. Some more prospective NFL head coaches in college:

 

Chris Petersen, Washington HC

Justin Wilcox, California HC

Dave Aranda, LSU DC

Well no, originally I mentioned Matt Campell after that post with the list and then when I went back to edit the list with all the other people I mentioned, (like Matt Campell), I must have made a mistake and not noticed until now. Thanks for bringing it to me attention though.

I think you're miles off on a lot of these college coaches. Franklin and Swinney are pure college coaches. They're recruiters, not elite tacticians. Petersen doesn't seem like the type of guy who would do well with NFL egos. Bielema is a joke. He's not even a great college coach. Richt is smart enough to know his place. I'd feel bad for the teams that hired almost every guy on this list.

Tom Herman, Kirk Ferentz, and Brian Ferentz are the main college coaches I like. The list is meant to include everyone who I think would be considered in 2019.

Todd Haley was trash with the chiefs as a HC. He wasn’t helped by having Scott Pioli as his GM, but he wasn’t able to put together a decent gameplan on either side of the ball and it wasn’t for a lack of talent. 

When Hue Jackson is fired Haley will take over.  not sure if he keeps the job but...

I don't see Leslie Frazier being a Head Coach again. He's at his best as a Defensive Coordinator and that's fine. For some, that's as far as they go.
