    Re: New Offense Coaches

    Just a thought.....

    With the speed that we've gotten our HC, DC, and OL coaches, I have to wonder what's causing the delay in hiring an OC? One possibility worth considering, IMO, is that Childress is waiting for some of the other Playoff teams to fall by the wayside to be able to contact their guys.

    Cincy just got eliminated and their Offense wasn't too shabby...we could be looking at some of their assistants.

    Indy hasn't played yet, and word on the street is that they had a decent Offense, too. Think they have some guys that wouldn't mind a move up in the coaching ranks for a team that has a very promising future, and is loaded with talent?

    I DON'T want Bevel from GB, and it's not just because of the rivalry. All he was, was the QB coach for them, and look who he had at the position...Mr. "Hey, I don't care what down it is, or who's blitzing me, because all I have to do is chuck the ball up in the air, and I'll cure cancer AND starvation by doing it."

    No, there are better candidates available, IMO.

    New rumors of possible canidates! What do you guys think of this?

    Darrell Bevell, who played under Childress at Wisconsin and has been the
    quarterbacks coach for the Green Bay Packers, appears to be a leading
    candidate to become the Vikings' offensive coordinator.
    Does anybody know anything about this guy?

    That would be sweet if it becomes true that Mike Tomlin would be our "D" coordinator ... that means some sort of the "tampa two" and that would make me very happy.


    Looks like Miami wanted him last year pretty bad for the same position:

    Defensive Backs Coach Mike Tomlin to Miami?
    7:32 PM CST

    an original article by Michael Awi

    PewterReport.com is reporting that highly touted Defensive Backs coach Mike Tomlin may be on his way out. He is still working with the Buccaneer staff at the Senior Bowl, but has been rumored to have been offered the Defensive Coordinator job by the Miami Dolphins. Tomlin has said his hope is to be a Defensive Coordinator in the league in the future.

    "I think time will tell," Tomlin said. "We all have dreams and aspirations, and mine are those."

    "I can’t speak for everybody, but I do believe he’s got a tremendous amount of respect," Gruden said. "He’s a knowledgeable guy, and a real high-energy guy. He’s a great communicator. He’s consistent in that he’s always up. He’s a very optimistic, upbeat guy, but he’s very demanding and detail-oriented guy, too. He’s a superstar coach. He’s going to be one of the best. He’s got a great future and we’re very proud to have him on our staff. His talent is unlimited and we’re very fortunate to have him here."

    Tampa Bay has been talking to Tomlin in hopes to bring him back next season, but it is unknown how talks are going right now. But if Tomlin were to sign an extension with the Buccaneers, he would likely been denied any possibility of leaving before that contract would expire.

    If Tomlin is to leave for any other job, assistant Defensive Backs coach Raheem Morris is expected to take over as the Defensive Backs coach.

    Kiffin gave him the stamp of approval, that's good enough for me:



    John Lynch was in Hawaii in February, 2001. Another Pro Bowl appearance for one of the league's most accomplished safeties.

    When Lynch's phone rang, it was defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin calling from the mainland. Good news, Kiffin said. The Bucs had found a defensive backs coach to replace recently departed Herm Edwards. A sharp guy, Kiffin said. Enthusiastic. Lots of great ideas.

    Then came a long pause.

    There's just one issue, Kiffin said.

    Mike Tomlin was 28. Lynch, at the time, was 29. He was now putting his career in the hands of a coach who was younger than he.

    "I thought, 'Whoa, this will be a little different,' " Lynch said. "But Mike called me five minutes later and was talking about all the things we could do. And when he got here, he did things his own way.

    "It doesn't matter how old you are or where you came from, people earn respect by knowing how to do their job. And he knew what he was doing."

    In two of the previous three seasons the pass defense had ranked second in the NFL. No matter, Tomlin said. The Bucs were going back to basics.

    E.D.D., he called it. Every Day Drills.

    The Bucs would focus on footwork. They would get back to fundamentals. Tomlin felt like there was room for improvement.

    "Some of the guys thought he was crazy," Lynch said. "You're out there thinking, 'We did these drills in high school.' "


    Two weeks ago the Bucs finished the regular season with the No. 1-ranked pass defense in the NFL.

    I really like that fact that he made them go back to basics and re-focus on the fundamentals .... Perfectionist. Love it.

    Childress must know what he is doing...and how much could Bevell hurt us...Childress will be calling the plays anyway!

    That being said, I hope that Childress IS considering other candidates.

    Re: New Offense Coaches

    From WOWT.com;

    [size=18px]Vikings Eye Cos [/size]

    The Minneapolis Star Tribune is reporting that Nebraska defensive coordinator Kevin Cosgrove is up for an assistant coaching position with the Minnesota Vikings.

    The paper says new head coach Brad Childress has contacted Childress about coaching the linebackers.

    Cosgrove has been a college coach for 26 seasons -- the last two at Nebraska. He was defensive coordinator at Wisconsin for nine seasons before joining the Cornhuskers.

    Cosgrove worked with Childress on Barry Alvarez's Wisconsin staff.

    Cosgrove did not immediately respond to an interview request with the Associated Press this morning.

    Is Childress planning on taking the Vikes to the Superbowl or the Rosebowl? :lol:

    From KFFL;

    Vikings | Cosgrove weighing move to the Vikings
    Mon, 9 Jan 2006 16:56:31 -0800

    Steven M. Sipple, of the Lincoln Journal Star, reports Nebraska defensive coordinator Kevin Cosgrove has declined to comment on reports that he is weighing an offer to become linebackers coach for the Minnesota Vikings. Cosgrove is torn between staying at Nebraska and making his first career foray into the NFL. He is a friend of new Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Childress.

    You know, there is so many rumors going around that I guess we'll have to wait and see who's hired. :???: I hope they hurry up and decide, the suspense is killing me!
