Well, with Steve Spurrier rumored to either be going back to Duke, Noth Carolina, or a handful of other jobs after he's likely fired by the Redskins this offseason, the question becomes two-fold; who is on the hotseat and who is inline to replace?

HOTSEAT
Dan Reeves, Atlanta- Probably not fair after the Vick injury, but ownership probably wants their own guy in their after a disappointing season and that guy is not Reeves.
Greg Williams, Buffalo- Contract year...
Dick Jauron, Chicago- Jauron hopefully already has his bags packed.
Dave Wannstadt,Miami- Just wait for the collapse...
Bill Callahan, Oakland- Might not be fair, but after the circus the Raiders have become it might be for the better
Bill Cowher, Pittsburgh- Maybe it's time for a change?
Jim Fasell, NY Giants- Pressure to get the team back to the playoffs is high
Marty Schottenheimer, San Diego- Martyball has already been deflated...
Spurrier- Probably a foregone conclusion...


REPLACEMENTS?
Tom Coughlin, former Jaguars, Boston College head coach
Nick Saban, LSU Head Coach
Bob Stoops, Oklahoma Head Coach
Larry Coker, Miami-FL Head Coach
Doug Williams, Grambling Head Coach
Ralph Friedgen, Maryland Head Coach
Mike Nolan, Ravens Defensive Coordinator
Ted Cottrell, Jets Defensive Coordinator
Mike Mularkey, Steelers Offensive Coordinator
Al Saunders, Chiefs assistant head coach/Offensive Coordinator
Lovie SmithRams assistant head coach/Defensive Coordinator
Random Old Guy(Remember, Dan Snyder twice tried to hire then 80-year old Pepper Rodgers as head coach in 2000 before somebody talked him out of it.

Any other soon-to-be-openings or candidates to consider?

Grimis, I think you mean Jim Fassett of the Giants.

Of the ones not mentioned, what about Herman Edwards of the Jets? This is the worst the Jets have looked since he became head coach, but I don't know what his status is.

Also, Dave McGinnis has been the Cardinals' head coach for three years now and the Redbirds have shown little to no improvement.

And, I'm not sure about this, but how much pressure is there to win in San Francisco these days? Seriously, if there's a lot, I don't see Dennis Erickson lasting there either. The 49ers have dropped several notches, plus he doesn't have a great history (he has a sub-500 record dating back to Seattle). If there's no New York level pressures, though, then he's fine.

Now that Spurrier's worn out his welcome...

Words cannot express my joy. Don't let the door hit you on the way out, pack your bags, and get back to the college ranks. Maybe SMU needs a new head coach.

(Of course, if Spurrier wins out the season ... oh well, I'll eat my words.)

Dan Reeves, Atlanta- Good coach but not the right one for this team.

Dick Jauron, Chicago- Not really sure about his coaching abilities but the OC is lousy.

Spurrier- It is funny watching the Redskins fall apart. I remember all the sportswriters fawning over him when he came to the NFL about how he was going to revolutionize the game.

Maybe I'm missing a joke, but isn't the Giants' coach Jim Fassel?

And I think you meant Jim Fassel.

I don't think Edwards is on the hotseat. He's gotten the Jets to the playoffs in the past 2 years, and this year lost his franchise QB for half the season. He still is one of the worst clock-management coaches you'll ever see, though.

Bill Cowher is secure for at least another season in Pgh., mainly because the Rooney family isn't rash in their decision making and wouldn't fire a man who has by all accounts been hugely successful during his tenure in Pittsburgh.

Word around Chicago is that Da Bears job is Nick Saban's about 3 minutes after the season ends and Jauron is canned.

I can't believe you left Deion Sanders off the list of possible coaches. At first, I thought he was kidding around in his usual "entertaining" self, but after seeing him on PTI the other day, seems he's dead serious about this. Thing is, he holds up Magic Johnson, Isiah Thomas and Larry Bird as successful examples of players-turned-coaches. Well, one out of three ain't bad, I guess.

Anyway, I wonder how the failure of Spurrier's NFL career will affect other teams going after NFL coaches. I mean, at the time, Spurrier was the Crown Jewel of coaches, and he's done squat so far. And Butch Davis isn't exactly lighting up the coaching world. I don't think Stoops or Coker are going anywhere, I could see Ralph Friedgen getting hired as an Offensive Coordinator somehere.

Doug Williams is an interesting name. I could see him with the Redskins, if only as a savvy PR move, taking care of the minority hiring and hiring back a local hero in one fell swoop. Whether he could coach this team is another story.



Does this make any sense? Let's say you're at a restaurant, and you see a man stagger away from the bar and walk directly into the wall, mistaking it for a door, banging his face and falling down, only to pick himself up and walk into the wall again, and then again, over and over. Would you say to yourself: "I admire that man! He is loyal to the tactic of walking into the wall, in the hope that it eventually will turn into a door!"

No! You'd say: "He must be a Cubs fan."

Well, he is 7-2 at Grambling, with both losses coming out of conference (they're leading their division), so he seems to be acquitting himself nicely there. QB's gone for almost 3000 yards and 27 TD's, too... second in rating and leading the SWAC in yards. So I think he could probably gun it better than Spurrier. And considering his team, well, didn't go 0-14 while he was playing QB... I think he might fit in quite nicely.

Let me put it like this: if you had a choice between Deion Sanders and anyboddy else on that list, who do you take? And we're talking about a football decision, not a box office decision.

I swear, I thought that Saban was offered some NFL jobs and turned them down over the last couple of years ... are you sure he'll bolt now?

what about these guys:

Phillip Fulmer - head coach, University of Tennessee (not sure he'd wanna leave UT)
Mike Heimerdinger - Off. Coordiantor, Titans (he's had a big hand in the success of Steve McNair)
Mark Richt- head coach, University of Georgia (may need to establish himself a bit more)

Sorry, I forgot to put that little smiley thing after that sentence.

I think Williams could do a great job coaching at the NFL level. But I don't know if he can make anything work with this team. I mean, Spurrier can gameplan with the best of them, and HE can't get anything out of this team. Why should I think a I-AA coach could do better?

From the sounds of it, he might be in trouble at UT anyway, so it's an option. But it would be awkward for a college coach to get fired and then get hired for an NFL gig.

I feel bad for Fulmer ... he goes 8-4 last year and people are already calling for him to get out of Knoxville.

Actually, it's not so much that people are calling for Fulmer's head as we're calling for the head of our offensive coordinator, Randy Sanders (who hasn't updated - or even changed - the playbook since Cutcliffe left, at least from the way the team's played). Honestly, though, why would teams hire a guy whose team was routinely smacked around by a coach who's tanking in the NFL? Wouldn't that mean Fulmer would do worse than Spurrier?

Now, going back on myself, the team's come out flat a lot over the last couple of years - almost as if they just weren't motivated for big games. Whether that's the head coach's fault or a lack of leadership on the team, someone's got to take the fall for it. (I think it's a combination of both, myself.) If Fulmer would get fired, that would probably be why. However, I can't see him being fired anytime soon.

Richt, on the other hand - the NFL can have him.
