24 Head Coaches were positions coaches in the NFL before taking over

At the end of the season, 24 head coaches were positional coaches for a previous team before coming the head coach.  When the Washington Redskins hired Jay Gruden they received an offensive coordinator.  Even though he was a head coach in Arena Football, he never really was over one position in the NFL.  Tons of offensive and defensive coordinators are getting looked at for the remaining jobs, but do you know what position your coach ran?
