Update: Callahan is head coach of the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
Anyone who thinks Tim Tebow will be a great NFL QB is an idiot.
[banghead] [banghead] Callahan was given the HC role by default in Oakland. Lost the SB then was fired the year after. and Who are those other guys any way.. their nobodys.
I'm not sure any of the current offensive coaches would even have NFL jobs if it weren't for Gruden. I don't see anyone else wanting them.
I think the issue is your assessment that "..all the coaches that have worked around him have gone on to become other HC's. I think this says alot about his mentoring abilities, and the type of person he is.Monte Kiffin is clearly the mentor of the defensive coaches that have moved on to bigger and better things. Save Dungy, he's had a hand in teaching each one the principles of the Tampa defense, not Gruden. I contend that all these defensive coaches would've been doing all these great things no matter who the head coach was, as long as Monte Kiffin was there to show them how to coach..I'm not bashing Gruden, I like him and I want him to stay, but if he was all that you believe he is, don't you think his offensive staff would've been getting some kind of interest from other teams? That's just not the case, so why do you think that is?..
Monty this and Monty that, the man is good yes, but if he is that damn good why isnt HE our HC???I think Gruden, as afore mentioned by Itchalot, enjoys being around older guys.......guys who bring more knowledge, but he has an ability to absorb all of it, and pass it on.........
You never answered my question about why Gruden's offensive staff hasn't been pursued by anybody around the NFL...
Wow, how early did you start drinking? Screaming, cursing, making faces, & turning red are effective ways of coaching? I don't think he's effective at all any more. Exhibit A --our 2006 season. And why don't you know that Gruden has nothing to do with the defense?

He could've been head coach in San Francisco a few years ago and ignored that. He's getting a great paycheck and lives in a great place, why subject himself to the headaches of being a HC if he doesn't have to? Just a guess..Passing on knowledge may be a gift that Gruden possesses, and I'd like to think thaty's the case, but defensive knowledge will never be something that he'll be able to out-teach Kiffin at.Don't you think he'd be passing along enough offensive knowledge to make at least one or two of his assistants viable candidates that are attractive to other teams?
