I'd like a rule that applies to both college/nfl where you can't interview until bowl games/playoffs are completely done

I believe you can't interview an assistant whose team is still playing, though Broncos on a bye so its permitted.

McCoy likely to take his time anyway I think. A guy who can gameplan Tebow and Peyton into the playoffs is going to have offers.

Eagles pretty obviously want Chip Kelly, Jay gruden a backup plan poss.

I'm pretty sure the Eagles want a younger up and coming guy, likely offensive minded. Finding the right DC important too.

In shocking news, the Jets fire OC Tony Sparano. Good OL coach but his offensive system outdated.

Looking like Reid is going to be a package deal, coming with Heckert, Castillo and Vick at a guess.

Dirk Koetter to interview with Eagles, Chiefs and Browns this week.

Don't see why you'd be opposed to Reid personally. His time was up as Eagles coach yes, but hes a very good HC

Do you know anything about McCoy other than he works for Denver?

Whis and the Cards GM still meeting the Owner. That its taken this long suggests he keeps his job and deciding which staff keep theirs

At least 4 of the fired HCs, and another 4 GMs can point at bad QB play as a reason they were fired.

I don't know if any niner coaches will be sought after. There were rumours about Greg Roman earlier in the season. If that were the case, I'd take Norv Turner as OC in a heartbeat. Bad HC but very good assistant

So does Seeley apparently. The Jags and Jets also want to interview our player personnel guy for their GM position. I suppose the downfall of success is that people take note. That being said, Tomsula has been linked with some jobs before and he's the guy I most want to keep

Imagine Tice will be fired in Chicago, Jeremy Bates I'd imagine would replace him.

The brief for the Cardinals GM and HC positions probably reads find a QB.

Worth noting if Denver makes the SB he can only interview with teams hes interviewed with this week, in the week prior to the SB

See the rumor about Dallas wanting to bring in an OC to help Garrett?

Don't see the point of that because Garrett would just be the HC then and he isn't a leader

I think Garrett was def overstretched this year, if you can bring back Norv and just have Garrett overviewing the whole thing, I think thats a stronger position for Dallas

Well Garrett's playcalling was pretty shoite in that game against Washington. So obvious that Washington were blitzing every 3rd down but he just couldn't find the answer to it (can't remember a single screen pass all game for Dallas)
