    Default Post your Arians replacement hopefuls here!!!!

    Here is a guy I would like to see hired. Has worked with Tomlin in the past (Tampa) as well.

    Kyle Shanahan enters his fourth season with the Houston Texans, sixth in the NFL and second as the Texans' offensive coordinator. Shanahan coached the quarterbacks in 2007 and the wide receivers in 2006 before being named offensive coordinator on Jan. 11, 2008. At age 29, Shanahan is the youngest coordinator in the NFL.

    Shanahan’s first year as coordinator was an overwhelming success, as the offense ranked third in the NFL, gaining a franchise-record 6,113 yards and passing for a franchise-record 4,267 yards. The offense was equally adept on the ground, running for 1,846 yards at a team-record 4.3-yard clip. Shanahan helped a pair of players earn Pro Bowl nods, with wide receiver Andre Johnson making his third career trip and tight end Owen Daniels making his first.

    Johnson garnered first-team AP All-Pro honors after he led the NFL in receptions (115) and receiving yards (1,575). Running back Steve Slaton won the rookie rushing title with a franchise-record 1,282 yards. Quarterback Matt Schaub turned in his first 3,000-yard season, passing for 3,043 yards and 15 touchdowns against 10 interceptions, giving him a passer rating of 92.7. The offensive line featured the same starting lineup for all 16 games and gave up just 32 sacks in 555 pass attempts.

    As the quarterbacks coach in 2007, Shanahan saw his group combine to have an outstanding season. The Texans' signal callers were sacked just 22 times all year. Quarterback Matt Schaub threw for 2,241 yards and nine touchdowns with nine interceptions in his first year as a starter. Backup Sage Rosenfels threw for 1,684 yards and 15 touchdowns with 12 interceptions. Their 24 combined touchdown passes were a team record.

    With Shanahan as his position coach in 2006, WR Andre Johnson turned in the best season of his young career and earned a starting nod in the 2007 Pro Bowl. Johnson led the NFL with 103 receptions and had his second 1,000-yard season with 1,147 yards. Johnson’s 103 catches accounted for 31.3 percent of the Texans’ total completions, more than any receiver in the league. Opposite Johnson, veteran Eric Moulds contributed 57 catches for 557 yards and a score. Kevin Walter, signed as a restricted free agent in the offseason, proved to be a solid addition with 17 catches for 160 yards on the year.

    Shanahan joined the Texans from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he served as offensive quality control coach during the 2004 and 2005 seasons. In his first season with the Bucs, he helped rookie Michael Clayton establish franchise rookie records for receptions and receiving touchdowns. He also helped receiver Joey Galloway finish seventh in the NFL in receiving yardage in 2005.

    He spent the 2003 season as a graduate assistant at UCLA, which participated in the Silicon Valley Bowl at the end of the season.

    During his senior year playing at the University of Texas as a wide receiver, Shanahan played in 12 games and averaged 8.9 yards per reception.

    He attended Duke University in 1999 and played wide receiver for the Blue Devils before transferring to the University of Texas in 2000. He spent two seasons at wide receiver for the Longhorns.

    Shanahan was born in Minneapolis and attended Cherry Creek (Colo.) High School. Shanahan and his wife, Mandy, reside in Houston and celebrated the birth of their first daughter, Stella, in 2007.

    2008-09: Offensive Coordinator/Quarterbacks, Houston Texans
    2007: Quarterbacks, Houston Texans

    Well, I don't see a current offensive coordinator from another team taking the job, since, no matter what we think, it amounts to being a lateral move for that person.

    I'm always a believer in promoting a 'lower' assistant coach from a long dominating unit (which my choice easily qualifies for by where he comes from), whether it's offense or defense.

    Looking at the pieces we have in place, I think our offense can be dynamic passing and running.

    In light of all of that, here's my choice:

    http://www.neworleanssaints.com/Team...0Lombardi.aspx

    Joe Lombardi
    Quarterbacks

    Joe Lombardi enters his third season with the Saints and has been promoted to quarterbacks coach after having served as an offensive assistant for the last two years. In his previous position, he was heavily involved in the preparation of the quarterbacks and passing attack, responsibilities that will expand in 2009.

    Over the last two years Lombardi has worked closely with Pete Carmichael, who has been promoted to offensive coordinator after serving as quarterbacks coach/passing game. While Lombardi helped tutor the passers throughout the last two years, he also stepped in for a brief stint as the running backs coach near the end of 2008.

    Lombardi – the grandson of legendary coach Vince Lombardi – is a 1994 graduate of the United States Air Force Academy

    At this point, I would settle for anyone not named Arians.... Really, I'm not picky at all.... Anyone at all is worthy of a shot, and likely to improve upon the current situation.

    Honestly though, I have no idea. The Steelers usually like to promote assistant's from within. I'm not sure who in the org. would be up for that job next.

    That's a good question! Making me think! I kinda go with Nky but while we're at it let's do it right.

    Take a star position coach from a competitor!

    ... Well, Chan Gailey will be looking for work... We already know that for fact... I'm sure that during the offseason there will be some young talents ready to step-up to the plate as well.

    Sure!

    A. We could reform him!
    B. We get accused of cheating all the time maybe he could actually teach us how!

    I'll drink to this easily. Tough to pull a coach under contract to do a lateral move in which case, finding a guy that's ready to move up to a coordinator is what one should look for. Lombardi definitely fits that bill.

    Remember though... Bruce Arians was Peyton Manning's QB coach. Doesn't always mean someone can call a game effectively and strategize well or in Arians' case... strategize at all

    After Brucey, mike mularkey looks like a savior, how about Frank Cignetti? Going from Bill Stull to Ben Roethlisberger would really let his philosophy come to life.

    Absolutely LOVE this pick. A couple reasons. First, I think his youth could lead to a personality that could endear the players to him. Second of all, I think the youth will bring in a mind set more apt to taking chances to open up the game and make the offense "interesting"...and in a good way. Third, I think that with the offense we have in place and looking at what he's currently done he'd be a great fit b/c Owen Daniels==Not as good as Heath Miller and Hines Ward+Santonio Holmes+Wallace= better than Texans WRs. I also think we have a better running game.

    I like the pick. Good one. Now make it happen.

    I don't know the person I would like to see take over Arians job. I just hope Tomlin picks a better OC than he did for a center in Mayhan.
