Nice sig btw!!!
Yeah I would like Arians
also saw Armstrong the Falcons ST is a candidate
-bccthe jacksonville jaguars fired mike mularkey on thursday morning and will now begin their search for a new head coach and some more names have started to surface. San francisco 49ers offensive coordinator greg roman is the rumored favorite to land the job, but according to jason lacanfora of cbs sports some other names have emerged.
Along with cincinnati bengals offensive coordinator jay gruden, it's rumored that san francisco 49ers defensive coordinator vic fangio and atlanta falcons defensive coordinator mike nolan are candidates for the job.
Fangio has been the defensive coordinator for the past two seasons, also serving as the defensive coordinator at stanford with 49ers head coach jim harbaugh in 2010. Prior to that he served as a position coach with the baltimore ravens and as the defensive coordinator with the houston texans from 2002 to 2005.
Mike nolan is currently the falcons defensive coordinator, but has extensive nfl experience as a defensive coach and was the head coach of the 49ers from 2005 to 2008.
-bccthe jacksonville jaguars have requested permission to interview st. Louis rams offensive coordinator brian schottenheimer, according to a report by adam schefter of espn. Schottenheimer was hired as the rams offensive coordinator this past offseason, after serving on the new york jets in the same position for six seasons.
Schottenheimer, 39, is the son of former nfl head coach marty schottenheimer and has worked for multiple nfl teams in some capacity.
Ryan van bibber of sb nation's rams blog turf show times gave his opinion on schottenheimer as a head coach:
There is nothing at this point to suggest that he is finished in st. Louis. Greg roman figures to be a very hot commodity on the coaching market. However, this isn't schottenheimer's first rodeo with the jaguars, which makes you wonder if owner shad khan, who is very involved with the team, sees something he likes in the offensive coordinator.
Schottenheimer's work with quarterbacks could have the jaguars interested too. He made mark sanchez look reasonable competent and helped sam bradford approach something closer to his expected level of performance after a lost second season in 2011.
There has to be something about Schotty, otherwise teams wouldn't seem so interested. He did turn Sanchez into a decent looking qb compared to this year as well as improve the Rams offense. We'll see, if Caldwell likes him, i'll like him. Caldwell isn't going to hire a guy if he doesn't think he'll be great. He's a smart guy.
I think Brian Schottenheimer has done good things with #Rams. But one person who worked with him said this: "He'll be a better HC than OC"

-bccjacksonville jaguars general manager david caldwell is beginning his head coaching search after dismissing mike mularkey. One name that has cropped up in the search is atlanta falcons special teams coordinator keith armstrong, who caldwell is very familiar with.
Armstrong, 47, has been with the atlanta falcons since 2008 as their special teams coordinator. Prior to working with the falcons he spent eight seasons as the miami dolphins special teams coordinator and four seasons as the chicago bears special teams coordinator. Armstrong also has experience coaching defensive backs early in his nfl career with the falcons from 1994 to 1996.
A college football player at temple, armstrong is also reportedly a candidate for the chicago bears and is african-american, meaning he would fulfill the rooney rule if he's not hired as the jaguars. The falcons are in the nfl playoffs still however, so he could not interview with a team until the falcons are eliminated or during the bye week leading up to the super bowl.
