I don't know, just figured I'd look at some of the top college offenses' coaches...
Sumlin is everyone's favorite as well. I think it's mostly because of how he presents himself in the media. He came into a program that had a lot of talent (thanks to Sherman), but was underperforming. He has taken that program to a respectable point, but a lot of that can be attributed to the unforseen Manziel and the endless supply of NFL caliber OL'men. He might end up being great, but I think he's a pretty big gamble to throw in as an NFL head coach at this point.
I also think we need a strong assistant head coach / defensive coordinator on the defensive side of the ball. For that role, I would suggest Kirk Ferentz of the University of Iowa. Ferentz has been an NFL defensive coordinator before (with the Ravens and Jaguars, and was on a very good young Cleveland Browns coaching staff in the 1990's. Lately's he's been a successful coach with the Hawkeyes. Ferentz is a players coach, but is not afraid to make the tough decisions or to chew someone out when they need it.
I don't care if the new head coach is offense minded or defense minded as long as he isn't absent minded like the one we have now.
Bet we see Frazier back as HC next year no matter how bad this season ends.
I'm all for a new head coach, as I've never seen Frazier as NFL HC material. He has no fire, and always uses the same excuses after any loss. He literally looks lost and confused on the sideline. I thought he used to be a defensive coordinator? The defense sure doesn't reflect that.
Musgrave is just as horrible with his three square inch playbook. I bet any viking fan could call just about every offensive play before it happens, or at least very close. VERY vanilla.
