Default Capers news...

from www.kffl.com

John McClain, of the Houston Chronicle, reports friends of former Houston Texans head coach Dom Capers said he has received five offers to run defenses from NFL teams, including one from the Miami Dolphins who play a 3-4 scheme.


Dolphins | No formal offer to Capers
Tue, 10 Jan 2006 21:31:44 -0800

Jeff Darlington, of the Palm Beach Post, reports Miami Dolphins head coach Nick Saban has yet to offer former Houston Texans head coach Dom Capers a position on his staff. There has been talk of Capers joining the Dolphins as defensive coordinator, but that may not be the case. Capers still is hoping to be considered for one of the remaining head coaching vacancies.

I would like to see Capers get a shot in New Orleans. He could draft Vince Young and that would make him a better coach than he was in Houston with David Carr

I wouldn't hold my breath if I was Capers. He may be a good DC, but he was a horrible HC.

I wouldn't be surprised if he went to the Giants with the soup nazi since he is such good friends with him. That means that he would have coached both of my favorite teams.

From green bay

http://www.packersnews.com/archives/...24311735.shtml

With 10 NFL coaches fired or leaving their teams, a large number of assistant coaches could be available, depending on the head coaches hired to fill those spots. McCarthy suggested he’ll begin interviewing candidates immediately.

Among those with experience as defensive coordinator is former Houston coach Dom Capers, who was a defensive coordinator with Pittsburgh (1992-94) and Jacksonville (1999-2000). He runs a 3-4 scheme he learned as an assistant with the Steelers.

Looks like the Bills are looking at Capers as a HC.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2298511As team officials approach the completion of the interview process, Dom Capers, who has served as head coach for two expansion franchises, will meet with the Buffalo Bills on Friday about the club's vacancy, ESPN.com has learned.

uhhhh no. Dallas already has one of the brightest minds in football running their defense. He didn't know crap about running a 3-4 and learned it over the summer. His defense, as is expected with him now, was GOOD.

Besides, when Parcells is done, I am have a suspicion that Jerry will make Zimmer the HC of the Cowboys.

The Texans 2005 season was a failure in part no doubt do to decisions
made (or the omission of other decisions) by Capers and I think he should
have been canned. But to just say he is a horrible HC and leave it at that, no. Coaches can have entirely different results in different circumstances with
different teams. As an example, look at Caper's buddy Tom McCloughlin, who
was fired at Jacksonsville after some losing seasons but a few years later
taking the Giants to the playoffs in just his second season with that team.
I wish Capers the best of luck with his efforts to land another HC job, because his results could be entirley different than here in Houston.

Just to confirm that Capers is interviewing for the Bills HEAD COACHING vacancy. I like the guy personally and it would be great if he could succeed in Buffalo.

I'm really pulling for him to get the Buffalo job. Hope he lands on his feet as a HC somewhere.

Post Side Note: Capers Possibly Next HC of Buffalo Bills

Our former head coach Dom Capers has interviewed with the Bills out of Buffalo this last week, and some consider him to be the front runner. This just prooves that he's a great coach, because he's getting offers. If he doesnt recieve this job, he'll more than likely get a defensive coordinator job somewhere in the leauge.

And hey, Denver's getting killed! We may name Mr. Gary Kubiak our coach this week.

At least Capers will have a solid D already in place. Hopefully he takes Pendry with him to help sure up that o-line in Buff.

Considering that we'll see Buffalo again next season, maybe we run over their offfense if indeed Capers and Pendry are there.
