Rep Power: 10 SnakeOilTanker is ridin' the pine
Default Best Name I've Heard

Cam Cameron, The OC from the Chargers.




Dude is turning 45 in Feb., has called plays for LT for a few years (think Reggie here guys) and also has developed a great TE in Gates out of nowhere. He knows how to get his play makers the balls and finds creative ways to do it (coach Randel El at Indiana)

My favorite name I've heard by far. I was a Kubiak guy till I read about him

Cam Cameron
Offensive Coordinator
7th NFL Season,
4th with Chargers

Cam Cameron put a charge into San Diego's offense in 2004. The Chargers scored 446 points, third-highest in the NFL and the third-most in team history.

Following the season, SportsIllustrated.com named Cameron its Offensive Assistant of the Year.

The Chargers were the only team in the NFL with a quarterback who threw 20 touchdown passes (Drew Brees), a running back with at least 10 rushing touchdowns (LaDainian Tomlinson) and a receiver with at least 10 touchdown catches (Antonio Gates). All three players were selected to the Pro Bowl.

Cameron's play-calling in 2003 led to another record-setting year for Tomlinson, who became the first player in NFL history to rush for more than 1,000 yards and catch 100 passes in the same season. Tomlinson racked up 2,370 yards from scrimmage, second-most in NFL history, and rushed for 1,645 yards, second-most in team history.

In 2002, Cameron's first season as offensive coordinator, Tomlinson rushed for a team-record 1,683 yards.

Cameron joined the Chargers after five seasons (1997-2001) as the head coach at Indiana University.

At Indiana, Cameron helped develop quarterback Antwaan Randle El into a 2001 first-team All-America selection. Randle El was the NCAA Division I-A rushing leader among quarterbacks and finished his career as the only player in major college football history to rush and pass for 40 touchdowns.

In 2000, the Hoosiers led the Big Ten in rushing (266.4 ypg). The team's average of 5.8 yards per carry ranked second in the nation behind the University of Nebraska.

Cameron spent the 1994-96 seasons as the quarterbacks coach for the Washington Redskins. He was credited with the development of quarterback Gus Frerotte, who was selected to the Pro Bowl in 1997.

Cameron spent 10 seasons (1984-1993) as an assistant coach at the University of Michigan. He worked the first two years as a graduate assistant. From 1986-89 he coached wide receivers, and from 1990-93 he coached quarterbacks as well as wide receivers. During his 10 seasons in Ann Arbor, the Wolverines won six Big Ten titles and played in 10 bowl games, including five Rose Bowls. Cameron helped cultivate future NFL talents such as Jim Harbaugh, Elvis Grbac, Desmond Howard, Derrick Alexander and Amani Toomer.

For Cameron, the move into coaching was a natural fit. His stepfather, Tom Harp, was a head coach at Cornell (1961-65), Duke (1966-1970) and Indiana State (1973-77). Cameron and Harp each have the unique distinction of coaching a Heisman Trophy winner. Cameron coached Desmond Howard at Michigan and Harp was an assistant coach at West Point when Pete Dawkins claimed the trophy in 1958.

Cameron had a successful collegiate career as a two-sport letterman in football and basketball at Indiana. He lettered two years at quarterback and three in basketball before a football knee injury in his senior year ended his playing career. Cameron graduated from Indiana in 1983 with a degree in business.

Cameron was born Feb. 6, 1961 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. While his stepfather coached at Indiana State, Cameron was a prep standout at South High School in Terre Haute, Indiana. He was an All-America selection in football as a senior and earned all-state honors twice and all-county honors three times. He was named Vigo County's Athlete of the Year in 1978 and 1979. Cameron led his team to three consecutive state basketball finals, and in 1979 he was named the winner of the state's prestigious Trester Award for mental attitude. In 1979, he also was named National Athlete of the Year by the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

Cameron and wife Missy have four children, sons, Tommy, Danny and Christopher, and daughter, Elizabeth.

If he could bring the o-line coach from the Chargers I might like it.

Think DD. We know what he can do. And he didn't cost us a #1 overall pick.

>and also has developed a great TE in Gates out of nowhere.

Gates didn't come out of nowhere. Most folks knew about Gates long before his breakout year.

Have to admit i have a list of hopefuls:
1. JJ-(However I think that water to wine trick is more realistic)
2. Cam Cameron
3. Al Saunders (If only we could snag him from KC!)
4. RedSkins DC I can't recall his name
5. Gary Kubiak
6. If only we could get a guy to run the show for a year, Jim Haslett. I really think it was the crappy situation (Murphy's Law went buck wild all over that team for about 3 or 4 years) Not to mention the owner should be institutionalized indefinitely.
7. Wade Phillips we could keep our defense and minimize our stay in Salary Cap Purgatory.
8. Anyone who promises to make releasing P-Burnt his top priority.

Cam Cameron I doubt will be the guy, he will be interviewed, but he is not overly impressive. Have not seen him put together enough good campaigns on a consistent basis to think he would fit with our team. He may be a quality fit in Oakland though.
