You don't think Lovie ends up anywhere?

Also, do you mean Bill O'Brien in Philly? If so, that's a real possibility, though I hope he stays at PSU.

as a PSU alum and follower of the situation, I really do not expect O'Brien to leave PSU..

if an NFL HC gig was his long term plan, I think he would have stayed as coordinator of NE then went for the job this season..

you dont leave (arguably) the best coordinator job in the NFL to go to a team in crisis like PSU unless you are there for the long haul..


P.S. I want Jay Gruden in the worst kind of way..

Well O'brien was tricked. PSU said their wasnt going to be any consequences for the school and that it was a criminal matter.

I dont know much about Jay Gruden. Can someone explain to me why he gets so much love around here?

Guys. If it's anybody other than Chip Kelly, we need to hope and pray that it's a defensively structured guy that gets the position.

Mike McCoy... Okay, if it's not Kelly, I would be excited for McCoy too.

I heard Jim Haslett's name thrown around a bit yesterday. That would be interesting... I feel like he has paid his dues and deserves another shot as the guy.

Lovie Smith is being interviewed today. I don't want to bite my tongue here so I'll just say it... Given our track record, we probably won't pull the trigger on him.

I hope to God it's not Ken Whisenhunt. Seriously.

Ray Horton is still #1 on my list with Chip Kelly at #2, and I still think Kirby Smart would be an ideal guy to hire as well.

Nonetheless, I wouldn't be surprised if the idiots upstairs just ended up promoting Curtis Modkins.

You keep bringing up Kirby Smart but I havent heard his name at all involving any of the HC spots in the NFL. Honestly I think he is a few years away from even being considered an NFL HC.

He might be, but in my opinion, he is a good candidate.

Seems too green for me.

Smith won't work as a HC in the league this year and shouldn't. He is half a coach. Someone might offer him a job as a DC but, if they have ANY expectations of offense, they will avoid him like the plague.

The Bills were smart not to hire him. I don't expect much from Marrone (too thin a resume) but you might get lucky with him.
