I am sad to see Lovie go. He was a great coach here but the success was not equaling out with the talent we had.
We've played in a division not talented outside of GB yet DET and MIN have made the playoffs the last two seasons and not us. Results and better showings on offense need to be made.
As far as possible candidates go, I have heard of Mike McCoy's interview. I wouldn't mind if they gave our S/T coach Dave Toub an interview. If not, the big name guys like Gruden and my ultimate wish, Bill Cowher, would be ideal.
I like Mike McCoy on that HC candidate list. Anyone know anything about the Falcons OC? If Eagles cant land a proven HC I rather go for a assistant on a winning team. Over college coaches.
Dirk Koetter is a very well respected offensive mind and is known for developing QB's and running an explosive offense. A lot of people credited him with having a huge role in the Falcons success this year because he transformed their offense from the vanilla run dominated offense Mularkey ran and implemented a pass heavy attack that fully utilized Julio Jones and Matt Ryan.
He's only been a Head Coach at the College level, but he had great success at Boise State (20-5 in his last 2 years at Boise) and had middling success at Arizona State. His high point at ASU was 2004 when they went 9-3.
Overall I think he'd be a good choice. Definitely is a great offensive mind.
