    New Coach Speculation- Fox's Replacement

    If and when Fox is relieved of his duties, which way do you think the organization turns? Make your decision and explain why.

    To me, you have to go offensive-minded, especially after drafting Trubisky. With that said, Frank Reich is a name that pops out. Current OC for the Eagles, you've seen what he's done with Wentz. Also, being a former QB, he'd be perfect for Trubisky. You make Fangio assistant head coach along with keeping his DC tag, he's earned it. The defense has kept us in many games since he took over, and also won us a few single-handedly. Loggains is also let go, and I think you attempt to pull Matt LaFleur away from the Rams. McVay turned that Rams offense around very impressively, is the clear play caller, and I think having Reich and LaFleur together co-playcalling could sky rocket Trubisky's potential.

    I think it's tough to say concretely one way or another. If you pull in a D specialist, they need to have a solid plan in place to bring along an offensive guru with a proven track record of developing QBs. On the other hand, if you bring in an O specialist, there needs to be some sort of plan in place to keep Fangio on board.

    IMO the best bet would be to try and set a plan to keep Fangio in place and then bring in an offensive guru as HC. My dream scenario would be Harbaugh...

    If Fangio wants to be a HC, then go with him and lure Kubiak out of retirement to be OC (remember Bears did try to pursue Kubs before Fox, but he denied the request, then went to Denver), promote Donatell to DC.

    Otherwise, Pete Carmichael Jr. or Josh McDaniels would be my choices as HC, but I have no clue who the coordinators would be under either one. Guessing Carmichael will be high on Pace's list due to the Saints connection.

    McDaniels still concerns me from his time in Denver showing clear lack of ability to reach his players. He pulled a major PR disaster with Cassell / Cutler situation, and that is not easy for me to get over from a locker room standpoint. I am just not sure that he has the management skills to be a good HC despite his clear offensive knowledge and prowess. Brady is another coach on the field for him, where he wouldnt be walking into anything like that here. I guess I am just worried about it being a fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me type situation, but Pete Carroll worked out pretty well after burning out so could just be pessimism on my part.

    I think Matt Patricia is going to be a hell of a head coach for someone eventually. Would love to see him get an interview to test the waters. Their D has taken a step back this year, but I am all for a guy who played O Line, has coached offense and defense with good history in team defensive stats, and has the intellect to of a rocket scientist, while seeming like a guy who players really like and respect at the same time. Has a hell of a scowl too.

    I prefer a defensive head coach overall but they need to be able to get a known commodity at OC, which should be more than doable so long as trubisky finishes the season decently. OCs want to work with young QBs like him based on what we have seen thus far. If we go offensive head coach, I would want someone from the Andy Reid coaching tree, ideally. Like the eagles OC or chiefs OC. Would be more than open to Toub too. Big fan of Pat Fitzgerald too, but not sure he would translate to NFL well. Just love that he would be a hometown hire, being from Orland Park.

    As long as its not Grudens im fine. I just hate that guy

    Harbaugh to me is #1. But i think Pace could go Gutsy. Hire a young guy like Eagles OC Frank Reich or Rams OC Matt LaFleur. As long as we can keep Vic i think Offensive heavy Cordinator is ideal.

    David Shaw outnof stanford would also be a huge option. But he keeps declining NFL jobs.

    Yea. Not sure how anyone cam want Josh Mcdaniels when he took. Fukl control and traded Jay who was young and promising so he could build his system. I don't want the same thing for Mitch. A coach to never give hin a real shot.

    I really want some nasty in a head coach, and I just dont see that in many offensive minded guys. Like cowher, ditka, tomlin, bowles, quinn, harbaugh, coughlin, buddy ryan, parcells. You push their buttons seems like they might just clock you. But its tough to find a guy who can balance that with managing the team and not being too emotional, and end up with a singletary in SF type situation.

    I get the concerns with McDaniels, just a hunch that he'll do much better the 2nd time around.

    I'm not locked into it being an Offensive minded guy either as long they're capable of bringing the right coordinators with them.

    McDaniels has all the makings of someone who would succeed the second time around. Especially being under Bellichick's tutelage. I'd love to be the team that gives him that shot because I can see him sticking around a very long time.

    McDaniels problem was that he had full control of the roster, something he wouldn't have anywhere else.

    In all honesty I can fault him for how he handled the Cutler situation but I can't fault him for wanting a different QB after watching the last 8 years of Chicago football.

    All the makings as in?? And McDaniels was under BB's wing before his failed HC attempt. Why will more time be any different?

    I am not saying he can't/didn't change, but you say "all the makings", but give zero examples of what any of those "makings" are. I am just curious what you think.

    The obvious answer here is Matt Nagy.

    Josh McDaniels will be a terrible head coach if any team actually signs him as one. What a crapshow in Denver it was when he was there.

    To be fair, he was very young and did reach the guys at first.

    Now he over 40 with more seasoning under BB. I'd be ok with him.



    I don't care if it's on offensive or defensive head coach, even though I voted for defensive.
    Just let the guy be capable of hiring effective coordinators.

    I kinda liked the idea of frank Reich until I saw last night that he doesn’t call plays in Philly... so basically he’d be sort of an unknown commodity in terms of offensive abilities...
