As we've long noted Greg Roman in good shape for Jags job. Mike Nolan, Vic Fangio, Jay Gruden could get interviews too


I wouldn't be surprised, nor against it if Nolan gets the job. He's still young and has taken his lumps from previous opportunities. Both of the teams he's coached were tough and scrappy with very good defenses (SF @ Denver). He's a guy I could see as having figured it out with what will be his final opportunity to get a head coaching gig.

Two candidates for the Jaguars HC job are expected to be 49ers OC Greg Roman and Rams OC Brian Schottenheimer.


UHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

He might end up as a better HC than OC.

I've read a report to the tune that Falcons special teams coordinator Keith Armstrong might be a wildcard candidate. He sounds intriguing, having coached in a variety of backgrounds.

I might be alone here, but I don't think that hiring a so-called "genius" on one side of the ball is the best way to go- I'm hoping for a guy with vision, who connects with Caldwell and will identify talent with him, and will manage a group of competent coordinators and position coaches.
Absolutely agree with what you think we need. But at the same time, I think you need a coach that can turn one side of the ball elite with his coaching. Otherwise, you'll see your coordinators getting Head Coaching jobs and you'll always find yourself hoping the next guy up is competent enough to run the offense. Getting someone like Mike Smith who can run one side of the ball, all while working hand in hand with the GM, and being the guy you described.

Roman can't interview until his season ends, so we need Green Bay to beat SF this weekend, otherwise we wait until the bye week before the Superbowl.

I'm actually rooting for a Hawks/49ers rematch in the championship game. I'm OK with waiting another week - at least we can begin the new era now.

As always, MoJo's optimistic.

The Seahawks DC interviewed for the Chargers HC job so i believe Roman can interview too.

I think he'd be a solid hire for you guys, and i'm worried about what assistant coaches he would take with him if he was hired. I think every one of our major defensive coaches (DL, LB, Secondary) would make good DC's.

Coaches on teams with a bye had to be interviewed Wild Card weekend. Coaches on teams that played Wild Card weekend can be interviewed this week, if they're permitted by their team.

Am I the only one that feels terrible for Mel Tucker? I know the D was terribad this year, but to be used like this.

Although, the interview could be serious and not just for the Rooney.....

Yeah, Most people believe it is only for the Rooney Rule. Makes me feel bad for him, I think he is better coach than our defense made him look.

I feel sorry for him also and I wish him the best in his near future.

That would absolutely be an ideal situation. That said- do you see anybody who "takes care of one side of the ball?" Somebody raised a good point about a coordinator being on the same side of the ball as the head coach, which raises some questions about Roman. I'm not entirely convinced on Brian Schottenheimer either.

If there's anybody who you could argue takes care of one side of the ball, I think it might be Gus Bradley. But he doesn't seem to be on the Jaguars radar (the Eagles seem to really like him, though). To be fair, I'm not a football man, and I like Caldwell's persona and thinking so far.
