    Would like to see a press conference where the owner, GM and Kingsbury try to sell the fan base on his qualifications for an NFL HC job.

    He seems to be the only one to accept an interview to this point.

    Will his buyout be reduced if he’s hired by an NFL team like it would with a college team? I know tech is struggling for money (see: hiring of three win wells) so this could help

    I’d start by saying

    “Hey, at least we weren’t the team that hired Mike Munchak”

    Riley could have interviewed anywhere. The Packers apparently wanted to talk to Fitzgerld. Reports were the Jets wanted to interview Matt Campbell. Other guys (Saban, Harbaugh, Shaw) could easily get NFL jobs if they wanted them.

    Better question, why does no one want to coach in the NFL?

    Because Steve Wilks was fired after one season.

    And can probably get a job as a coordinator and then continue the miserable recycling of NFL coaches. Sounds like quite a gig.

    I honestly have no idea, how much do NFL head coaches make on average? Coordinators?

    Salaries are private but I bet most new HC make like 4-5 mil. Coordinators are probably 1-2 mil.

    why do people think munchak would be a bad hire? he's consistently been the best OL coach in the league and wasn't terrible after following fisher in tennessee with locker hassleback, and fitzpatrick at qb.

    i get that he's not a sexy choice and there's no way he's winning a super bowl. he's really just a placeholder. but if you have a placeholder team with carr, stafford, dalton, etc. about ten other dudes at QB signed to a big money deal, i'd hire munchak. you're already treading water as a team. might as well try and win some games and you'll have a good OL.

    I would absolutely rather have my team hire Kingsbury than any of those tired retreads that keep getting mentioned like McCarthy, Caldwell, Gase, etc.

    His offenses ranked in the bottom third of the league all three seasons in Tennessee. Maybe he will evolve but if you’re going to hire a coach in today’s league, you’re better off swinging for the fences with an innovative offensive coach.

    Wilks was only making about 3 million, so that's probably the bottom of the range.

    At least Kliff could be hilarious, nothing fun about the crap retread cycle

    I think those offensive guys could be successful if they have talent to work with that is acquired by someone else and they don't have to recruit kids to places like west Texas.

    i get that. but, again, he had a washed matt hassleback and then a jake locker/ryan fitzpatrick tandem at qb, too.

    adam gase is supposed to be an offensive guy. would anyone be excited about their team hiring him? it seems like everyone wants another mcvay but clearly he's an aberration in the sense that both fans and teams themselves have very little idea of what makes a good head coach. munchak has been involved with some of the best offenses in the league for about five years now and you could maybe do okay for yourself if you hire him and then spend money on a high level proven OC and/or DC.

    again, i'm not saying this is a slam dunk hire. i'm just not lumping munchak in with someone like jim caldwell or mike mccarthy (who i think is terrible) and mike mccoy.

    You could argue that half that list hasn’t upgraded.

    I just don’t understand how the browns don’t give Greg Williams/kitchens a shot full time. I’m almost always against lifting the interim tag off of someone but I think Williams is a good coach. He’s just an asshole who’s career stuttered after the bounty shit. I’m certainly not going to go for McCarthy though. Even if you don’t want Williams, I’m going to hire a defensive guy and let kitchens keep running the offense. Baker and him clicked.

    As a broncos fan, the Broncos job is seriously awful right now.....

    Worst ownership situation in the league(Bickering kids fighting for control and its now in a court battle)
    Insane fanbase with crazy expectations
    GM that has all the personnel power and won't give it up, Elway even frequently makes assistant coach hires
    President of football operations (elway) and team ceo (Joe ellis) supposedly hate each other
    No qb and the upcoming draft is awful qb wise

    I can't imagine how terrible of hire we are going make. Truth is elways plan that was overruled by ellis last year(fire Joseph and bring back mike shanahan who would have landed cousins) was probably the best case scenario to get through the next 3-4 yrs until the ownership situation is figured out.

    I think Vance should get a shot as well. Denver was a shit show and it is Elway's fault.

    This part is crazy to me

    USC has balked at giving permission to the New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals to interview Trojans offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury, league sources told ESPN.

    Sources said a perfect storm of the NFL's new enforcement of an old rule has led to the situation where the Jets and Cardinals can't talk to one of their head-coaching candidates.

    At last month's NFL owners meetings in Dallas, league officials informed team executives that they now had to request permission from college athletic directors to interview college coaches. Not doing so would be considered "conduct detrimental" and the NFL then could dock draft picks from teams, sources said.

    "If permission is denied, the NFL club should respect that decision just as it would respect a similar decision from another NFL club," the rule states in part. "NFL clubs that fail to follow these protocols may be subject to disciplinary action for conduct detrimental to the League."
