“He was our defensive line coach when we lost to Green Bay in the Super Bowl and my defensive coordinator when we won three rings,” Johnson said. “I’m a huge Rac fan. Rac would mean instant credibility. What a great hire that would be.

“Rac’s got so much NFL experience. He’s serious and intense, but he’s still got an easy way about him. He’s just a great coach, a player’s coach. I hope they get him.”

Crennel stinks as a head coach, but is an amazing coordinator. I didn't realize he was 66 though.

Yeah, he is a great DC. This would be an incredible upgrade in my opinion.

Please elaborate. Just curious why it's not going to happen. I can't believe it's out of the question just because you say so. I'm sure you and O'Brien go way back but I had no idea you had that much input.

What I like about the older coordinator and the younger coach is stability. Romeo is 66, he's not looking for another head coaching job. Just like tom moore,lebeau,jimmy johnson(rip) and even capers,they're cool being oc and dc. I hope RAc is the dc. He would do wonder with watt and he also like the big guy in the midle.

Jim Bernhardt was OB's position coach at Brown and his special assistant at Penn State.

Meet Jim Bernhardt, Bill O'Brien's right-hand man, confidant
Quote:
Consigliere is the word he used,” Bernhardt said, while sitting in his office glancing at his ever-changing to-do list. “My first loyalty and foremost is to Bill O’Brien. Someone might say that sounds like some type of hierarchy or something based on the university, but I do that with a very clear conscience because I know that he’s going to do the right thing.”
Quote:
“We’ve always had kind of an older brother, younger brother type of relationship,” Bernhardt recalled. “I facilitated – and if he wasn’t qualified he wouldn’t have gotten it -- I facilitated when he got his first big break at Georgia Tech as a graduate assistant with George O’Leary, who is an old friend. We have that relationship where it’s beyond just working together.”
Quote:
“The bottom line is this thing works because he knows I’m never going to lie to him,” Bernhardt said. “He may not like what I say, he may not agree with what I say, but he knows he’ll get an honest answer.”

Two things come to mind:

1. The Titans got Norm Chow to be their offensive coordinator. And when they came up to draft a QB... they chose VY over Matt Leinart. Which was a head-scratcher.

2. The Dolphins got Sherman as their OC from A&M. And then drafted Tannehill in the top-10.

So it would be interesting but it might not be a real indication of what we're going to do.

True, but Watson and Bridgewater almost consider themselves family. Teddy calls him a basically a father IIRC. Also, I believe the story was that Bud ordered the VY pick when Fisher voted against it.

I think the only way Horton leaves Cleveland is to be a head coach somewhere. He only left the cardinals because he didn't get the hc job and Arians had his own guy to be dc. Not to mention Horton was pretty upset he didn't get the job.
