    mike martz better be the first guy we bring in to interview for the offensive co-ordinator spot..wilf should get him signed and not let whoever he hires as head coach choose his own offensive co-ordinator..martz is an absolute offensive genius, and if we dont give him serious consideration for that position, then we arent very serious about which direction we're going with this team..we gotta go out and get the absolute best group of coaches together, the best possible to fill in at all the positions
    There's no way Martz is going to take an offensive coordinator job. There are teams out there that are interested in him as a head coach, and he will be someone's head coach next year.

    Martz could definitely be in mind ... he was officially fired today, but he has been done in St. Louis since the sixth week of the season ... and was even green-lighted to talk to teams ... though he couldn't talk to NFL teams due to NFL rules until the season was over he was given the okay to talk to college teams ... he definitely has been on the market and could be someone that Zygi has in mind.
    By the way you failed to mention that both Martz and Fassel have been to the Super Bowl.
    With that being said, Martz would look like the best candidate.

    I definetely am dead set against Fassel, but with his ties to the Giants & Wilfs love for his Giants, Wilf will give him deep consideration.

    Candidates list

    Potential Vikings head-coaching candidates listed alphabetically:

    Cam Cameron, offensive coordinator, San Diego Chargers

    Brad Childress, offensive coordinator, Philadelphia Eagles

    Ted Cottrell, defensive coordinator, Vikings

    Jim Fassel, offensive coordinator, Baltimore Ravens

    Kirk Ferentz, head coach, University of Iowa

    Jerry Gray, defensive coordinator, Buffalo Bills

    Russ Grimm, offensive line coach, Pittsburgh Steelers

    Gary Kubiak, offensive coordinator, Denver Broncos

    Tim Lewis, defensive coordinator, New York Giants

    Ron Rivera, defensive coordinator, Chicago Bears

    Jim Schwartz, defensive coordinator, Tennessee Titans

    Gregg Williams, defensive coordinator, Washington Redskins
    From these two lists most of them haven't aren't even HC's and are all a risk at that position, just as Tice was.

    If we look at only the HC available from this list, here's what's left;

    Mike Martz (HC record: 54-33) 3 winning season, 2 losing seasons, 1 8-8 season, 3 playoff seasons (3-4)

    Jim Fassel (58-53-1) 3 winning season, 3 losing seasons, 1 8-8 season, 3 playoff seasons 2-3

    I don't think Zygi had Martz in mind, since his firing came after Tice's.

    Zygi stated he will bring in a "big name" head coach before Martz was fired & right now Fassel (New yorker) is looking to me like that's who he had in mind.

    Doesn't look like a bright future to me right now.
    I agree, Singer. There won't be a bright future if they bring Fassel in. IMO.
    We would be going from a players coach to a whiney, prissy pants, shorts in a perpetual knot coach who might destroy the team moral.
    Not to mention the 'wow' factor he hasn't produced as the Raven's OC. LOL

    Re: Possible Future Coaches List

    I think that if will depend on who we get for our "GM" If we get the eagles Gm then I bet we hire Childress as coach. If we hire the broncos GM then I bet we hire Kubiak. I read in the StarTrib. that Wilf wants to hire a big name with lots of exp. The only one's with alot of exp..are Kubiak, Childress, Fassel, Williams. Although I would not be surprised if we hired Rivera or Ferentz.. Thats just my thoughts!

    Re: Possible Future Coaches List

    Kubiak was interviewed when the Texan came into the league, and they are going to interview him again this week. It is highly likely that they hire him in Houston.

    It is rumored on NFL TA that the Pack will look at Ferentz also.

    Re: Possible Future Coaches List

    As of now, I am preatty neutral on almost every canidate, execept Martz. I can't stand Martz. I do agree he is a great offensive mind, but doesnt know how to manage games. I dont think he is a great fit for this team either. He is better suited for a vikings team like 2 years ago. If he would be coach, I think he would pass the ball 40+ times a game, and want to win in shootouts, which I feel is not our best chance at winning.

    I would like to look at Kubiak though. He has been the offensive cordinator that have produced multiple 1000 yards backs, a 2000 yard back, and lead the team to 2 superbowl victories.

    Re: Possible Future Coaches List

    What a year to be an assistant in the NFL!!!

    What a bad year to be looking for a coach!!!!!

    There are 7 possibly 8 vacancies to fill this year.

    Some of the firees will get another chance and some no names will get hired.

    Wow, how things change!!!

    Re: Possible Future Coaches List

    There are alot of different openings, but if you were a coach who would you go to?

    Packers- coaching farves last year would be fun, but he may not stay, and the rest of the team is awful

    Texans- have hope with reggie bush, but that only hope...

    Rams- have talent, but comming off a losing season

    Saints- coaching a team that is very disfunctional would not be fun

    Chiefs- just missed out on the playoffs, and has a future behind larry johnson

    Vikings- just missed out on the playoffs, and won 7 or last 9. lots of cap room and a owner willing to spend.

    Re: Possible Future Coaches List

    Rivera
    Cameron
    Childress

    or

    Mariucci

    Those would be my choices, not in any particular order. Although I will say that I'd be really happy if we went with Mariucci. He has experience, ability and he would be good with the players.
