Default Dom Capers for Steelers HC?

Quote:
CAPERS TO GET A THIRD CHANCE?

There's talk in league circles that one of the possible candidates to replace Steelers coach Bill Cowher when/if/when he leaves is Dolphins defensive coordinator Dom Capers.

Capers was Cowher's first defensive coordinator, and Capers also was the first head coach of the Carolina Panthers. After being fired by the Panthers, he later became the first head coach of the Houston Texans.

Capers' biggest success as a head coach came in 1996, when he led the fledgling Panthers to the NFC Championship Game.

He also has a terrible toupee/weave/combover.
From everyone's favorite rumor mill.

IIRC, Dom is well thought of in steeltown due to his defenses. I wonder if they know he has had a couple of HC gigs that haven't gone to well since he left there?

Yeah, they have to be conflicted in Steelernation about Capers. On one hand he is one of the co-creators of the version of the 3-4 defense they run and on the other hand he sucks as a head coach. Would he be different for the Steelers?

Default Re: Dom Capers for Steelers HC?

I actually think this would be a good fit. If he's willing to relinquish control to an offensive coordinator, Dom is great at running a 3-4 with the proper defensive players. The defensive pieces are pretty much in place in Pittsburgh, so he would be able to let the draft and FA work for the offense.


Then again...he is Dom Capers.

Yea that's exactly what I was thinking. With Saban leaving Capers might just step up....wrong choice of words...how about step into that position.
