    Re: 2011 Vikings Coaching Staff: Ideas Options & Needs

    I think there is a solid chance that Singletary either gets another HC gig or just flat takes a year off. I cannot see him considering a team with a defense already firmly in place that was put in place by the head coach.

    As for OC ... there are definitely a lot of good options out there. I like the mention of Mooch, but I imagine if Mooch wanted back in, he would be looking for a HC gig.

    I think McDaniels will likely be an OC next season, so he could be a possibility and would likely be a decent one.

    And I think it is a logical step for Zorn to try and move into an OC position ... and he could fit nicely here.

    The more I think about this, it seems that Chilly was a sacrificial lamb offered up to the fans in hopes for a stadium. LOL!

    Wilfs seem to like to promote from within and the don't seem to totally flush Chilly's system down the toilet, they hire Leslie for continued continuity.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Bevell and the interim DC stay around. But then again, I wouldn't be surprised if Leslie went after his former Bear team mate, Mike Singletary.

    Mike should not be above taking a DC job. He had his shot and may never get another HC job.

    Haven't had much time for Vikes today. Getting ready to go back in the closet, however, judging by what I've seen you are probably pretty close to accurate.

    Only mention of any addition has been one that I kindof like and thats a must fill at the RB coach position.

    One job he will have to fill is the position of running backs coach. That opened up with the end of the season when Eric Bieniemy went to the University of Colorado as offensive coordinator. One name that appears to be in the mix is that of former NFL running back and longtime position coach Johnny Roland.

    Frazier is familiar with the 67-year-old Roland from their time together in Chicago. Frazier was a cornerback for the Bears from 1981 to '85 and Roland coached Chicago's running backs from 1983 to '92
    Vikings looking at Roland?

    As one commenter said, "If he was good enough to coach Sweetness, he should be good enough for AD". B)
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    The thing about Roland, is he actually good, or did he benefit from coaching one of the all-time best. Much like how some people believe Bienemy is a good RB coach, he also coaches the best back in the league. Hard to look like a bad RB coach in that position.

    Singletary is not qualified to be a defensive coordinator, neither is Kevin Greene. (That is pretty much the consensus, notwithstanding Mike's gig as a head coach.) You want the absolute best expert on schemes, not just some motivator-type for a DC. Neither of them are seasoned enough or knowledgeable enough to be a great DC.

    Go ahead and get Singletary or Greene for the job---I'm all for it, even at the expense of losing Greene (who is doing an awesome job as a new coach) --- we will carve your asses UP :P

    Tom Cable would make an outstanding o-line coach for someone.

    Kevin Greene isn't even our linebackers coach. He is technically our outside linebackers coach, fyi. Winston Moss is our ILB/ asst head coach.

    Now, if you were to advocate Singletary as a LINEBACKER coach, well, I'd be all against THAT... He's probably better than Greene at that job, especially now that he has had some HC experience.

    Greene is kind of nuts, btw-- a lot like Dennis Hopper, ya simply gotta love that.
