Tad bit dramatic? You think the 49ers are the only team with assistant coaches?
In the college ranks, Bill O'Brien and Chip Kelly are being seriously looked at as potential head coaches.
For at least one of the jobs, in Arizona, every indication is that they will retain their defensive coordinator, Ray Horton, and make him a head coach.
Then you've got your retreads, guys like Holmgren, Andy Reid, Lovie Smith, Jon Gruden, Brian Billick...etc
Then you've got your "absolutely gone" assistants/coordinators such as Mike Zimmer of the Bengals, Mike McCoy of the Broncos and Perry Fewell of the Giants(favored for Bills job)
And then you've got a ton of other assistants who are up in the air such as Aaron Kromer of the Saints, Jay Gruden of the Bengals, Gus Bradley of the Seahawks, Jack Del Rio of the Broncos, Josh McDaniels of the Patriots.
I haven't heard Fangio mentioned even as a minor candidate for any single head coaching position. He didn't get so much as a single interview or even a phone call at the end of last season. Roman has been mentioned as a potential guy for Philly and Carolina and Seely gets mention at times as well, but considering how the 49ers special teams has looked this year, that may very well work against him.
