Jim Fassel - took the gaints to the big show. Had the leadership to take away the play calling from the OC when not happy with calls.

Pete Carrol - NFL record not great but he is a good coach and look at other coaches that it took awhile to take that next step (Belichick). It would be great if we could keep Capers as DC.

Jim Fassel is a real possibility. While the Ravens Offense sucks, he doesnt have the skill positions to make his system work.

I would be happy with anyone exceot Capers really. Preferably someone who runs a tight shift and wont take **** from players or assistant coaches. Need a leader, not a note taker...

From CNNSI (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2005/writers/don_banks/09/18/snap.jugments.week2/index.html):

Three names that are now officially on everyone's coaching hot-seat list: Minnesota's Mike Tice, who may not make it out of October, Houston's Dom Capers and the Texans' equally beleaguered offensive coordinator, Chris Palmer.

Jeff Fisher, if possible.

Houston Oiler player, currently has a bad team with no superstar QB to take over the reins for McNair, and is tough as nails and doesn't let his team have any doubts during any bad circumstances.

He can do it. Just not sure if the contract situation allows it.

Jimmy Johnson is the sexy pick right now. He did well with a Cowboys team that resembles our team: Bad o line, but great QB/RB/WR trio.

We just need all those Herschel Walker picks, and JJ could do the job.

Bob Stoops? not bad. He's doing a great job at OU.
Jimmy Johnson? Someone touched on that a few posts up that he was able to make the QB, WR, and RB shine despite a lack luster O-line. Aside from visiting w/ Katrina evacuees at the Astrodome alongside McNair... I wonder why else he was in town :hmmm:

There are some pretty good coaches in there based on the short descriptions - well except for Chain Gailey. He was still a puppet in my mind at Dallas.

Jeff Fisher? That would be awesome.

I thought that Jimmy coached well during his time with Miami. He was stuck with an aged Marino and he did make the playoffs his first year. He got Zack Thomas and I thought his teams played with a lot of heart. Which is way better than anything we have now. Heck if McNair could convince Jimmy to come back and coach the Texans and Jimmy came with it 100%. I would take him in a minute. He is from the old school ways, like Parcells. Results and effort mean a lot with him.

Don't make the mistake of confusing Jimmy Johnson's problems in Miami with his being out of touch and from a "different era". This isn't Chuck Noll, Tom Landry, or Don Shula we're talking about. Johnson didn't coach 20 or so years and lose touch with the players. Johnson went to Miami where Dan Marino was the sacred cow who couldn't be pushed aside (but needed to go much like Favre today).

If he'd been given the kind of freedom to build that he had in Dallas I believe Jimmy Johnson could have been successfull long-term. His lack of interest in coaching in the NFL stems I think from the bad experience he had in Miami. Who would want to go through that again? For a coach to get it done he needs absolute authority over his team.

Sorry but I believe the Salary cap has chnaged the NFL on all levels, from Fo to coaching to players; and I don't feel that Jimmy could be a succesful coach in the salary cap era. Jimmy was known for damn near cutting rookies during games which dosn't work now due to the increased value fo rookies (ie lower salary cap figures). I also don't think that Jimmy and Cass could work together, and I'm not ready to run Cass out of town yet.

Could I be wrong? Sure. But as of right now there are several choices I like more then Jimmy.

And besides Jimmy ain't leavingthe booth, and why should he? Man is living the good life right now; why would he want to go back to 80+ hour work weeks.

I'm not a big believer in firing a head coach in the beginning of a season. Let him go until the end of the season. If the results aren't what are expected then replace him. If you fire Capers now, who are you going to replace him with? Unless I'm mistaken, you can't hire someone on another coaching staff until AFTER the season ends. Even if you could hire them, they won't be able to coach the team until AFTER the season anyways. Why limit the selection to out-of-work coaches or someone from our staff?

That said...if Mike Tice gets fired I'd take him first, then Kubiak and maybe Gray.

09-19-2005, 03:41 PM
I am very intrested in the Jimmy Johnson vein thats developing...I belive that his top strenght was finding the top players to draft and really he just put those athletes in position to maximize their strengths. If JJ comes in then Casserly may or may not stick around...could be good, could be bad. Bottom line is that the standards the team are held to would significantly increase which is a good thing. As far as JJ not doing well in MIA, consider this, he did not have the blockbuster Hershel Walker deal to accrue draft picks so team construction took longer...he did however build one of the elite defenses over the last several years with the pieces that he brought in.

That being said Kubiak sounds pretty good...an Aggie that has a lot of skill working with QBs and WRs (go figure!). Not a bad deal and worth to check out.

I still think that Sam Wyche would be the most intriguing pick-up. If he has overcome his health problems he could be a significant impact as a coach again. I would seriously consider recruiting him as the O-Coordinator. Having a QB developer of his stature working with Carr would probably bring some significant results.

Bum Phillips maybe Jerry Glanville, Hell how bout the ball boy, Maybe then we could bring Moon back, get a second receiver with Drew Hill or Ernest Givens, Replace Buch with Chris Dishman and get Ray Childress off tv. Get Al Smith and Sean Jones for linebackers. The oline could be saved by Mike Munchak and Bruce Mathews.

I could careless if the coach is stoic like Tom Landry or animated like John Madden. There is only one way to correctly "reinvigorate" the fan base ---- WIN GAMES.

A local favorite with ties to UT or A&M might generate an inital delight from the fans but so what. What we need is a coach that will get us a SB win.

I like the Jimmy Johnson idea. This would facilitate the long overdue firing of Capers as well as Casserly. I think we'd be a playoff contender by LAST year if JJ had been here and not Capers/Casserly.

However, the stuff about shining "despite a lack luster O-line" is nonsense. When the Cowboys were whipping tail under the JJ's they had Stepnoski at center and Eric Williams at tackle; both pro-bowlers. Even Nate "look at those sweatmarks" Nooten was twice the player (no pun intended) the Texans have ever had on the line. Later during their glory years they added all-everything left tackle Larry Allen. When JJ had success he had a dominant o-line. No worse than top-5.

I like the ideas of Kiffen and Jim Bates (look what he did with the Dolphins last year when he took over, and his defenses in Miami were always good) but how about Mike Trgovac (Panthers D-con)? I know he's not got that much experience even as a co-ordinator, but he's got to be doing something right there - especially when you bear in mind that he was previously the D-line coach, responsible for bringing through Peppers and Jenkins.

Switch to a 4-3 defense and get Monte Kiffen..I like the sound of that. (For those who say we dont have the personel for a 4-3.. we dont have the personel for a 3-4 either.. but I like our Dlinemen better than our LBs right now.. so lets put 4 of them on the field)


The Ravens are 0-2 right now and the Bengals are 2-0. Brian Billick may be looking for a job by the end of the season.

Billick would be #1 on my list.... buuuuuuut.. then again.. how much of the Raven's success can be attributed to Billick? and how much to Ray Lewis?

When he took the cash and chose to stay in TB, it showed me that he wasnt interested in being a HC. Rather have the paycheck and not all the responsibilites. But that man can coach some D.

I saw this quote on ESPN today:

"I know it's not [chic] to consider offensive-line coaches as head-coaching candidates. But some team needs to look at [Steelers line coach] Russ Grimm. It was just a couple years ago that the Steelers had one of the worst rushing years in their history. Look at them now. They take a guy who wasn't even drafted [Willie Parker], put him behind that line and make him a star. Remember, they're starting a whole new right side on the line, and the tackle [Max Starks] is basically a rookie, since he hardly played last year. Grimm has done one hell of a job there."

What a lot of sense this makes! A coach who can create an OL from nothing and is HC material? His number one priority would be protecting carr and this would completely change our offense. Grimm for HC!

Find that non-politically correct coach that will have the respect of the players as he demands it, has the focus and expects to win big and not play it close.

... and if I hear of another "movie day" for this team this year.... it better be right after they win the SB, or better not hear it at all. You're there to WORK and earn your paycheck.

Grimm for HC!

Could we please not hire another Steelers coaching alum? I think that's not a tradition I want to start.

The Jim Bates idea is interesting. Bates did a phenomenal job pulling the Dolphins together last year for a couple of wins after they'd been given up for dead. According to "Spank" Goldberg, Even their offensive coordinator was going home at 5 PM every day. Bates is a firebreather who did what he did with Miami's D even though virtually everyone Wannstedt drafted didn't pan out.

I'm still praying that this team snaps out of it and finishes the season with the staff that it has now. Hopefully the message has been sent and no more blood needs to be shed. But even if Capers gets fired, doing it in week 4 or in week 12 isn't going to suddenly make this team a contender. He says he identified the problem and came up with a solution. OK, fine. Now go win.

No Jimmy Johnson, he can only coach if there are great players around him, and we have decent ones. The real Jim Johnson from Philly or the Bucs D co ordinator probably won't leave since the past couple of years teams have been looking for coaches and they weren't even mentioned. I think they want to stay where they are. I like Jim Bates, Brad Childress, Jim Fassel, I'm not familiar with Kubiak but he seems popular here. How about Belichek, we can trade our entire draft for him. =]

I just don't agree with this. You give Aikman, Smith, and Irvin to Jerry Glanville and you're going to get an 8-8 team that other teams play harder just because they hate that smug little monkey in black. Glanville was a bad coach. The argument that Jimmy Johnson is not a good coach is laughable.

Jimmy is a very good coach....but I'm not sure he's interested in coaching again.


I've always been a Jeff Fisher fan. Wonder if he'd be interested in switching teams or if that is even legally possible?

Head Coach? ..
Someone who is an alumnus of Slippery Rock College. (PA) Rock Mystique churns out brilliant coaches even though it's a small school.

Jimmy Johnson just doesnt feel right to me. Maybe its because he was a cowgirl or maybe it was because he was bad in Miami... I just dont want to see this guy on our sideline.

I understand anyone thinking that in Houston. But you know what? He will sure as h*** tell you how he really feels when you ask him a question. That's one of the things people loved about him.

Seriously though, the guy that shold've been here in the first place:

Butch Davis

He's not in Houston already because Casserly wasn't willing to give up GM duties. Given the job he's done so far, that's easily solveable.

He won't come back to coaching, but the thing about JJ that would really interest me is his input in the draft and any trades made. He seems to know talent like nobody's business and we wouldn't be dealing with garbage like Hollings and P-Burnt for example.

Jeff Fisher would be my first choice for HC, no way Jimmy leaves Fox.

Wade Phillips(HC), Carl Mauck(OC), Mike Singletary(DC)

I've got a new favorite option:

Scott Linehan http://www.miamidolphins.com/lockerroom/coachingstaff/coachingstaff_linehan_s.asp

Yes he's young, but he's worked well with QBs and helped run one of the NFl's most potent O's, Minnesota's for the last three years before moving to Miami this off-season. HIre him and make Hoke the D-coord adnd we might have the best, young caoching staff in the NFL.

FROM PRO FOOTBALL TALK.COM

MCNAIR PLANS FOR POST-DOM HIRE



If/when the Texans fire head coach Dom Capers, word is that owner Bob McNair wants a replacement with NFL head-coaching experience.



But he also wants a guy who is relatively young.



This combination leaves McNair with few options, unless he's interested in 46-year-old David Shula, who primarily has been running daddy's steakhouses since getting run out of Cincinnati.



So it appears that the next coach of the Texans (if indeed there is a "next coach" in 2006) will be a guy who is a head coach right now.



And that means it'll be a coach who is either fired from or who is permitted to leave his current gig. The pool of potential retreads, though, will contain some younger guys who aren't all that enticing (pun intended), including the Meathead and Mike "Meathead II" Mularkey (who could find himself thrown under the Buffalo bus by Tom Donahoe if the Bills fall apart this year).



Based on our discussions with league insiders, the primary candidates for the job likely will be Tennessee's Jeff Fisher and the Saints' Jim Haslett.



Fisher, however, might not be available. Though the Titans generally are expected to stink it up this year, there is a feeling that owner Bud Adams won't hang the blame on his long-time head coach, given the significant offseason roster upheaval that the organization endured. Also, Adams surely is keeping in mind the fact that Fisher wanted to draft cornerback Antrel Rolle with the sixth overall pick, and that it was G.M. Floyd Reese who pushed for Ms. Pacman.



Haslett's contract with the Saints runs through 2006. If the team isn't interested in extending it and he wants to walk, Saints owner Tom Benson might be inclined to let him go to Houston in order to avoid having to pay Haslett's salary. But Benson isn't always of rational mind, and he might decide to keep his hooks in Haz once Benson realizes that someone else might want him.



Either way, the thinking is that McNair will need to make a move on Capers early enough in the 2005 season to permit the interview process to proceed in good faith (i.e., the Rooney rule). Then, if/when Fisher or Haslett become available, McNair will be able to pounce before they end up somewhere else.

I say George Castanza. At least my tears would be from laughing.

You mean Art Vandelay?

Ill take him. George, or maybe Denzel Washington as coach Herman Boone who sure as hell can get fired up, and not worry about what player A thinks about coach A.


I do not think that a mid season head coach is a good thing. Let him finish up his disaster season, so the new HC can have an offseason to right the ship before he plays a game.

I want Dom to enjoy every minute of HIS football team, sucking.

David Shula was a big bust as an assistant. If the Texans even consider hiring him for head coach I'd think they'd lost their minds.

Haslett...nope.

If they got Jeff Fisher I'd do the happy dance.

Everyone that says Jeff Fisher... Why would Jeff coach the Texans? He is a god in Tenn, and will be their coach for another 10 years.

Regarding Fisher...nobody is saying he would come here or even could but rather the thread asks who would you want.

He's the coach I would want. Young, experienced, good track record, hard nosed.

I can't imagine any situation he couldn't handle with the Texans that he hasn't already seen with the Titans.

And I'm just guessing but I would think Bob McNair would be willing to pay him alot more $$ than Bud would.

Bob may want a young head coach with NFL HC experience but often there's a wide gap between what you want and what you get in this world, even for someone as wealthy as Bob McNair.

I doubt these are the only criteria the boss will look at when the time comes to replace Dom. I personally don't think Jeff Fisher will be available and since he's employed at this time by the Tacks I don't any reason to speculate. Back in the day Bud would have already fired him but Bud's gotten calmer over the years. My one regret is that the good people of Nashville will never truly get to see Bud for what he is. He's just too old and comfortable to really screw things up like he used to.

In McNairs place I think I'd see if Jimmy Johnson was interested and discuss it with him. When he said "Thanks but no thanks" (and he would) then I'd start looking at NFL assistants that are doing an outstanding job somewhere and pick the one I thought the most of after interviewing the lot.

...and you can bet he's making a ton of $$ since he also has a vice-president tag by his name

I was looking through some old threads and found this. It was actually a pretty good read looking through all the pages and seeing who and why everyone thought should be our next Head Coach. I cant believe I didnt put Kubiak on the first list I posted.... ohwell.. show's how much insight I have.

by the way.. i gave + rep to everyone that wanted Kubiak in here... nice call guys!:redtowel:
