Head coach demotions to coordinator positions on the same team don't happen in the NFL.

Two names that aren't being discussed a great deal will be on the sidelines this weekend. Mike Zimmer (Bengals DC) and Rich Bisaccia (our ST coach) are old school, no nonsense coaches who have a track record of success and turning around bad teams. Neither has ever been a HC before but many experts around the league speak glowingly about both of them.

Both are fiery leaders on the field and don't put up with crap. I think that trait is desperately needed here in whoever leads our next team.

Mike Mularkey, Pat Shurmur and Jason Garrett could all be viable OC candidates should they be fired as head coaches this offseason.

I think that would be a terrible coaching staff. First off no to Andy Reid imo. And Norv as an OC? Why would we want him as an OC when the main problem this year is our offense who cant even score no more. Norv is a terrible HC and a not even a good play caller.

I would LOVE to have Mike Zimmer as a HC. Hire him and we can still keep Ric as our special teams coach.

I so agree with you here. This is a HC who has had everything he's wanted handed to him by his owner over the course of 14 years...and came close only once during that time. He's supposed to be a QB "guru" who can "fix" Rivers? How's that? He can't even develop his own QB, and has to go out and bring in a hybrid QB from the dog fighting arena. The way I see it, Norv is a much better alternative than Reid...period.

He knew how to get the most out of Wallace, Antonio Brown, and Mendenhall in Pittsburgh too.

I would love the Shaw/Gamble combo from Harbaugh coattails, but, hey, I'd love me some Steeler tradition in So Cal too!
Hey...my cousin coached at Temple. They actually had a good team then too
