      The Official General Manager and Coach Search Thread.Who's coming in?Feel free to speculate about the GM and Coach. Also Use this thread for GM and Coaches who come in for Interviews.

      Lovie Smithlovie-chargers-1_1.jpg84 Wins, 66 Losses1 Superbowl Appearance3 Division TitlesLovie Smith has been tied to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coaching vacancy. Rumors are that he may bring in Marinelli as the defensive coordinator. Jeff Tedford, a former University of California coach who helped mentor Aaron Rodgers is a favorite to potentially follow Lovie. For those unfamiliar, Lovie served with the Buccaneers as an assistant under Monte Kiffin. Many great coaches have had similar roots, Tomlin and Edwards come to mind.Link: http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap2000000307195/article/lovie-smith-a-strong-candidate-for-buccaneers-job

      Gary Kubiak1383676732000-USP-NFL-Houston-Texans-at-Kansas-City-Chiefs.jpg63 Wins, 66 Losses2 Division TitlesAs an assistant, Kubiak has been a part of 3 super bowl winning teams, but unfortunately has not had as much luck as a head coach. The struggling head coach had a TIA which caused his physical collapse midseason during a game, just prior to half-time, in which Wade Phillips took over for the Texans. He was fired shortly after. Kubiak is believed to be drawing interest from Tampa for the Head Coaching vacancy. Will his career sub .500 record or health concerns keep him away? We shall see.Link: http://thepewterplank.com/2013/12/30/report-tampa-bay-buccaneers-interested-former-texans-coach-gary-kubiak/

      GM first makes the most sense. Hopefully the Glazers have learned to get the top guy in first and let him hire who he wants. Unless they really want O’Brien.

      Watching NFL Networking and they discussed possibly hiring a Coach first and GM afterwards, meaning the Coach would have more say on personnel etc.

      Never like this, coaches coach and focus on short term issues, GM's are your long range planners.

      I also agree. I heard they might bring in Lovie, not sure if they’re serious or if it’s to satisfy the Rooney rule.

      I think the Glazers want Shanahan. They are looking for a huge, splash signing. Shanahan, Cowher, Lovie. They want a winner who has name recognition.

      A good practice to use this as a jumping off point but it's not always the most prudent approach. Ideally the Glazers already have a GM replacement in mind.

      Agree. I think its time for a team president. Pay one extra salary and have a proven person run the show from the top

      Fox Sports mentioned that regardless of where Lovie goes he has already reached out to Hue Jackson & Mike Mularkey. Wouldn’t mind it at all but I’d rather us go GM then coach.

      If they buy out his NC contract which is about $2 million then sure. Otherwise Davis can't coach in the NFL without losing money.

      I'm not gonna feed into these speculations, its obviously the easiest to report. These were the same guys with the same sources telling us that Schiano was safe before the game.

      Lovie has had some solid NFL seasons.I think pairing him with a talented OC is a must though.I don't want Mike Tice or Mike Martz calling plays.
