Most recently, the Miami Dolphins grabbed Mike McDaniel to serve as their new lead man, and the Jacksonville Jaguars hired Doug Pederson after he took a year off from the NFL. The New York Giants hired Brian Daboll as their new head coach, the Las Vegas Raiders took Josh McDaniels from New England, the Chicago Bears hired Matt Eberflus from Indy and then the Denver Broncos hired Aaron Rodgers’ friend in Nathaniel Hackett. While it’s not official, it appears Kevin O’Connell is on to Minnesota after his Los Angeles Rams wrap up the Super Bowl.
If you were a hot commodity on the NFL coaching carousel, where would you want to coach? You have players, quarterbacks, cap space, ownership – so many things to take into consideration.
1. New Orleans Saints
The Saints finished this past season with a winning record and possess two of the league’s best offensive players in running back Alvin Kamara and receiver Michael Thomas. New Orleans will have to have several of their high-priced players agree to contract structures if they are going to contend next season without losing too much of their existing talent.
