Default Who's going to be the new OC?

Might as well start a speculation thread.

Some of the names I've thought of, and this not an endorsement of any of these guys just names that have crossed my mind.

Bill Callahan - WCO guy
Chan Gailey - A much coordinator then HC, but he is prone to calling the 5 yard play on 3rd & 8
Mike Leach - A true offensive genius, and I'd love to see what he could do with top flight talent along the O-line and at RB (if we ever have top flight talent at RB). I hope he stays at Tech but if he must leave Lubbock I'd be ok if the move was to Houston.
Norv Turner - Another great coordinator but crap HC.

Who y'all got?

Default Re: Who's going to be the new OC?

While Mike Leech would be a cool OC, I don't think his lack of running game would mesh well with Kubiak's philosophy of run first, pass second.

Norv would definitely compliment the Texans well, and is an intriguing idea.

It will probably end up being Kyle Shanahan and I think a lot of people are not going to like that due to his age.

I would take Cam Cameron too, but nobody knows if the 'phins will let him go after this season. He did sort of inherit a pretty bad team.

I think Leach's lack of a running game at Tech is more due to the type of talent he is able to recruit then the fact that he is truly that pass happy.

I'd be real intersted to see what Leach could do if he had a running game he could rely on at times.


as for little Shanny, a) I think 27 is just too damn young to be running meetings (unless Kubiak is going to do it and Shanny is just OC in name) and b) let his Pops take the chance with him as an OC not us.

Default Re: Who's going to be the new OC?

I wouldnt mind Kyle running the offense because maybe we get a nut who wants to mix things up am\nd make Texans football exciting. Give us something to be excited about. Or if you are worried about age, try and get some co coordinator to help him learn the ropes. A fresh and new perspective couldnt hurt.

Tech was a power running team for years before Leach arrived. Remember little Ricky Williams? Leach's philosophy is to spread out the defense and throw the ball. I really don't think his scheme would work in the pro's, especially with the huge splits on the offensive line.

I would say that a) Tech tried to be a power running team and b) Spike Dykes refused to pass because he had some very below average QBs, most notably the great Zebby Lethridge and c) Spike was afraid of the pass.

As for all those great RBs under Spike, how many had good games against the top teir talent, espically after the formation of the Big XII? I remember many a rolling by Nebraska in Lubbock.

I think Leach runs the spread because it fits the talent he is able to recruit to Lubbock, if he could get better talent along the O-line and at RB I think he would run more.

I assume it'll be little Shanny, but it doesn't matter anyways. Kubiak will run the offense and hopefully he reverts to what he knows works.

It's the DC I'm worried about. Will they rid themselves of Richard? Will Bush become DC? I hope so

Good laugh for the day.

I wouldn't mind Kyle being the OC. He seems to be doing well with the QBs, and last year the WRs, so yeah. Wouldn't be that big of a deal.

Turner as an OC has me very intrigued, but it will probably be Kyle. I'm not sure if that is the smartes of moves though. Has he had enough experience? Is he smart enough to call a good game and adjust to defences?

Default Re: Who's going to be the new OC?

I am curious why not Larry Kirksey the WR coach, look what he has done with our WR and he is in his 11th season versu Jr his in his 4th. I honestly think that it will not be Kyle because of lack of experience.


This is the second year in a row the Texans have had to replace the OC, who ever it is it needs to be some that can stablize the offense and it needs to be someone who can at least challenge Kubiak with different schemes other than what has been done in the past. Different ideas is not a bad thing and can only help the team.

For what its worth . John McClain was saying Sunday that it might be Kyle Shanahan . He said that he thinks he will take the OC job here , then move on to Denver as OC for a couple of years , and eventually take over Daddy's job as head coach . He also said that he has a reputation as one of the good up and coming young coaches in the NFL . I wouldn't mind that . No college coaches please .

Default Re: Who's going to be the new OC?

KS and the offense will focus even more on passing. He was the receivers coach and that is where our strength lies. We will go with RBs but expect a more wide open attack in my opinion. I think we will see more draw plays also. Kubes will continue to have final say. Now if we could just change the DC.
