Wade Phillips or Ray Rhodes would make good D-coordinators.
But I have a feeling that Harbaugh will being those "NFL experienced" coaches with him from the college ranks.
The Bay Area is becoming way too obsessed with Harbaugh. The only reason he gets so much credit is because he's working for a local program..........would Niner fans be all over him if he werent coaching at Stanford ? I doubt it.
Gruden's the only PROVEN candidate. I hope Jed ignores all the fans (unlike the Sing debacle) and goes after Gruden.
Just wondering -- would you dislike it if we hired Harbaugh?
I agree that Gruden would be a great fit here, as well - and have good experience, obviously.
I think he's better than the trash we've had here for the past 6 years. I wouldnt say he's the worstcoaching option out there, but Id feel a lot more comfortable with a proven commodity like Gruden or Billick.
Harbaugh sounds like the sexy pick.............the one the fans are voting for, kind of like they voted for Sing when he felt like the one.
After hearing Billick talk about how much he has learned being in different locker rooms as an announcer, I think he might be a good choice.
I agree that Billick is the sleeper pick for head coach if Harbaugh, Mularkey, and Mortingweg don't want the job.
Every time I heard Billick talk about the Niners, it was always in a positive light and had great things to say about our talent. Now, I'd prefer Harbaugh b/c he's the kind of coach not afraid to admit he needs great coordinators and will get them for this team, but Billick seems to WANT to be our HC, which I respect.
If Billick does become our HC, I only ask that in his contract, it states he's not allowed to be a part of personnel decisions (i.e. Kyle Boller, Steve McNair, Trent Dilfer, etc.)
