Default Texans Lead Division in Coaches...

From Kuharsky's AFC South Blog:

http://myespn.go.com/blogs/afcsouth

Quote:

There are 21 coaches listed on the Texans roster, which gives the last place team in the 2007 AFC South the divisional lead:

Texans: 21
Colts: 17
Jaguars: 17
Titans: 17
Quote:
It's an example of Houston's spare-no-expense operation under owner Bob McNair and shows as the determination of coach Gary Kubiak and GM Rick Smith to ensure the system they've installed stays healthy.

"We've got a lot of young coaches on our staff," Kubiak said. "Bob's been great to let us build a good young coaching staff. In this business, you've got to prepare to lose people. You've got to understand you've got to always be bringing young guys up and teaching them your system if you're going to be consistent over the long haul."

Is there a limit on the number of coaches a team can have?

Default Re: Texans Lead Division in Coaches...

This is different but I've been thinking it would be really really interesting to take a confidental/anonymous poll of all the Head Coaches and Coordinators from every team in the NFL. Have them rank every single team in different categories like: Owner you would want to work with, Overall team, the direction the team is heading, City location, etc.

It'd have to be anonymous, of course, because if it leaked out that Fisher ranked coaching for the Titans or for Adams very low... he might get the can sooner than later. But I'd find it really interesting how the coaches would rank the organizations, those that are highly regarded vs. those that aren't.

I'm pretty sure there is a limit on the number of scouts you can have, but there is no limit on the number of coaches a team may have.

I thought we had 23 coaches including Kubiak! If we get the best coaching in the league, who cares how many there are.

I think its great. Our old timers Alex Gibbs and Ray Rhodes are most likely short timers... so why not have our guys waiting in the wings sopping up as much as they can while they can? Thats Coach thinking about the future...

Default Re: Texans Lead Division in Coaches...

i remember in the Gibbs 2.0 era in Washington that they had some rediculous number of coaches. it didn't help. but i don't think that they are an organization with the same long term philosophy that the Texans have. I'd be curious to see how many the colts have. I believe that we share a similar philosophy of expecting good coaches to move on and up and protecting the educational momentum by hiring more young coaches that we can mentor and feed with the type of info we want them to coach with and when their elders promote up on other teams that have key positions available we'll have a younger guy who is teaching the exact same system that the guy above him was. so you can have a revolving door of coaches and still keep consistent teaching so you don't have "rebuilding years" with coach turnover and the new coaches want a different type of player so the organization has to replace all the players and that can take years to develop. by the time you've turned over all your players the coaches are on their way out because of a slow turnaround!

one of the greatest things about this organization is that it preaches the "stay the course" philosophy and although it's maybe not as sensational as some other systems, it will prove to have longevity and as a fan i'm much more interested in that.

I disagree that it would have to be confidential for Jeff Fisher's sake. If Bud Adams is ever stupid enough to fire Fisher, then he will get what he deserves. The Titans would go to the bottom of the division, and meanwhile Jeff Fisher would only be out of a job as long as he wanted. Fisher would have immediate job offers.

Whether you like the Titans or not, and I certainly don't, I think one has to agree that Fisher is one of the better NFL head coachs. Not as good as Kubiak, of course.

Definitely agree with both of you, but I was just using that as an example. If I were a coach, I'd be very careful in what I say if there was the slightest chance the public or my organization would find out that I valued 20 or so other organizations better. Maybe Rod Marinelli would be a better example with the Lions. If the lions org. found out he or their defensive coordinator thought the team sucked and ranked them at like #30 or something, it would look bad for them.

However, I'd find it interesting to see how these Coaches feel about other organizations. I'd be willing to bet the Texans would be ranked very high, maybe that's homerism speaking- but it'd be kinda cool to read. What owners are really respected consistently, what teams coaches consistently feel are up and comers. Like hearing that Gibbs and Rhodes were the ones that called Kubiak and not the other way around, that hit me hard that we're a team these people want to go to now.

Default Re: Texans Lead Division in Coaches...

I seem to recall during the most recent collective bargaining discussions some of the smaller market owners (most likely Ralph Wilson since he's pretty vocal) wanting a limit on coaches and salaries to coaches. The larger market teams like the Redskins could afford to overpay and definitely had too many coaches for their own good. I like what the Texans are doing. They have a good mix of young and old. One guy leaves (Sherman) and a young pup steps into the role (Shany II). I don't get the feeling that we are just out to accumulate the most coaches like Snyder was doing. Like Barrett said, it's a different philosophy. Let's see the results on the field now.

As more and more time passes, my belief that Kubiak was ready to be a head coach in the NFL strengthens.

Default Re: Texans Lead Division in Coaches...

it's one of those things that i kind of worry about, let's say that Richard Smith's defense doesn't show enough improvement and they decide to fire him, I'd really hate to see a new system installed. I would hate to have all this down time while the defense has to be reconfigured. (god forbid if we switched to a 3-4 and have to rearrange the personnel again.) I'd like to think that all the coaches on staff share somewhat similar philosophies, otherwise why would they be working in this system? it seems like it would make more sense to tweak the current system than to install a new one. I'm hoping that's the philosophy. lets say John Benton gets hired out from under us after Gibbs retires, I'd hope that one of the offensive assistants would promote to continue teaching the same system rather than someone new coming in with a different philosophy.
