    Jon Gruden- hell yeah. A kind of coach we need, loves Locker and the Titans (even if he's in love with other players), has a ring, and maybe players would be more eager to come here if they actually knew who are HC was?

    Cowher- no way he comes here

    Edwards- ehh no

    Saban- he's not an NFL kind of coach

    Reid- hell no

    Holmgren- there is some connection with him and Reinfeldt. I believe he really liked Locker as well?

    Chip Kelly/Brian Kelly- let's just go ahead and eliminate college coaches. Do we really want that kind of risk when we're still not even sure about the future of Locker after next year?

    Mike Holmgren is 64 years of age.

    Cowher has not coached since 2006 and Gruden since 2008. Both have rings so what drives them other than money?

    I'm more concerned with OC & DC.

    They are the ones calling the plays and actually matter more with regards to player development and overall unit strategies.

    If you gave me the option of either hiring a premium (DC and OC) vs a premium (HC), I'd take the coordinators.

    I understand that a good HC will bring in his own staff and his popularity can help land some important players via free agency, but if i had to choose strictly between those two options, i'd take the coordinators.

    Like i said before, I like Mike. He is on a short list of elite ballers that this club has had and has been a loyal person in all his roles with the organization for like three f'in decades now.

    Don't get me wrong, I still want an elite HC, and if MM wants to try to find a HC gig elsewhere, I really do wish him the best of luck. If he doesn't mind manning the the OL again (or do that alongside Bruce among other things in a more assistant to the HC role), then that would be awesome. But i'm all for keeping him on staff.

    I'm for Andy Reid out of these options due to the fact that he's consistently been able to put a good product on the field and has shown himself to be a QB guru. If we were to get him i'm sure he'll take a look at Locker and evaluate whether he wants him to be our QB of the future or not. If not then Matt Barkley could be a distinct possibility with Andy Reid due to his innate knowledge of the west coast offence.

    Reid's 4-3 base defenses have, however, been slightly more disappointing. Though this is not all his fault, it's mainly due to the fact that they have had shocking d-cords over the last few seasons. If he were to hire an experienced d-cord that is not afraid to blitz, then our young D would be a whole lot more successful.

    Reid is an experienced NFL HC, still has passion for that game and would likely be able to turn the Titans back into a respectable organisation in a short period of time.

    He went 9-7 the last two years with the Bucs. But yeah, I love Gruden because he shows emotion and loves the game. Tired of having plain face Munch on the side. I want a coach who can fire up his players before a game, not put them to sleep.

    Ray Horton, Jon Gruden, or Kyle Shannahan.
