    Best of luck to him. The quotes that I've seen from Kubes and Shanahan seem to point to him as an offensive innovator.

    He'll get his chance now.

    It wouldn't surprise me if Sherman were to get the OC title. I think that he had more input with the gameplan than Calhoun did anyway. JMO.

    Probably. But, they'll still need to hire a QB coach, as Calhoun was responsible for both jobs.

    Congrats Calhoun, good luck as a HC. Would it be Sherman takes over the OC and Kubiak, though HC, have a "slash" in his title for also QB coach?

    Kubiak is QBs coach.. and was running the offense as much as Calhoun.

    Id look for Kubiak to bring in another young guy to "put under his wing" and start grooming.

    This guy was supposed to be innovative? I guess there's only so much you can do with an Arena League II quality QB.

    Does this mean we don't need a sacraficial lamb in the offseason and that Carr gets at least one more year to stink it up?

    hmm...

    I wasn't that impressed with our offensive coordination this year. Good luck with the AF.

    Calhoun will not be able to overcome the Navy Triple Option. He's got no chance.

    It is great for Kubiak in that he is starting his coaching tree, but what have the Texans gained? This is very frustrating as a fan.

    Houston, again.
    Calhoun most likely will finish out the season with the Texans and then start with the academy. The coach that was just named to be the HC at Boston College is doing the same thing.

    Did anyone see anything this year that suggests we should be upset about this?

    What a great hire for Airforce. A QB coach/offensive coordinator that masterfully designed the 2 step dink and dunk offense. Good luck to the AIrforce defense.

    I can't say I'm upset about his departure. I would expect maybe Sherman to get the nod at OC, I don't see him getting any HC offers despite his good track record there. It's probably easiest this way too. I don't see any overhauls as a result though. Unless they go outside of the team for a new OC.
    Time will tell.
