Projecting what coaches land where

We at NFL Draft Diamonds like to have fun when running the site, so what we did is project each coaching vacancy and give a coach we feel works. So here you go, Hope you enjoy!

Buffalo Bills – The Bills are doing a very thorough search after Doug Marrone skated on them. While they have interviewed quite a but of guys for the Head Coaching spot, I feel the Bills go with Frank Reich as their man. Many could be upset with this move, but I feel Reich is a good move. I have a feeling the Bills will try to convince Bill Cowher to take the Football Operations role in Buffalo, but he elects to stay with commentating. Jim Schwartz will be promoted to assistant head coach/Defensive Coordinator.

New York Jets – the Jets are going to hire Doug Marrone. It is obvious, the man left a job without having another spot? I doubt it, I am sure Marrone knew he would get play from the New York Jets. To be honest, I bet the Jets were tampering with Coach Marrone before the season was even over. Expect the Jets to hire a GM with ties to Marrone. Three of the 5 candidates they have interviewed had ties with him so far. Just saying….

Oakland Raiders – The Oakland Raiders will hire Jack Del Rio as their head coach. The former bay area NFL linebacker loves the Raiders and would love the opportunity. Del Rio has done a great job with the Broncos defense, and will be in charge of hiring an offensive guru to help the young Derek Carr.

Atlanta Falcons – Rex Ryan will head to Atlanta and run the show. Rex will take over the Falcons and make them a feared defense. Rex has never had a quarterback and his team made it deep in the playoffs. Matt Ryan and the offense in Atlanta will be on the right path and could eventually win the Super Bowl with Rex in charge.

Chicago Bears – The Bears have been relatively quiet in the coaching search but this will pick up fast. Todd Bowles will finally get his shot and he will rebuild the Bears defense. I can see the Bears landing a very solid football mind who is not afraid to get this defense back to playing well. The Bears are known for defense, and they get a guy that can get them back. Chris Ballard will land the GM position.

San Francisco 49ers – Pep Hamilton takes over as the new Niners coach. The bay area man is a very solid offensive mind, who keeps the Niners defensive minded Vic Fangio. Fangio was at Stanford as was Hamilton. This is a good hire.
