Marty in NYJ should be interesting given the QB drama.

And good job keeping this thread with up to date info irondarts.

Norv Turner in Cleveland as OC should be nice!

Thanks GOBB.

On another note, no black head coaches or executives were hired this off season, which lead to news today that the NFL is considering overhauling and adjusting the Rooney Rule, as it hasn't been very effective for several years.

It's been 6 years since an African American has been hired as a Head Coach through an external search (meaning the person hired as HC wasn't already on the team's staff).

The questions is, how many black coaches are available? I haven't heard any names. The point I'm making is that the Rooney Rule was not only created to get more minorities hired, but moreso to have more of them trained to become head coaches. That's where the real problem lies

Looks like the Eagles are close to hiring Pat Shurmur as their new Offensive Coordinator.

WTF, such a weird hire IMO. Shurmur and Kelly have such different offensive philosophies.

I definitely think there are capable black coaches out there, some that come to mind: Ray Horton (Should have gotten the Cards job, IMO), Hue Jackson, Mel Tucker, maybe Jim Caldwell.

But I agree, there's not a whole lot of candidates. I think Hue Jackson may get another Head Coaching job. I definitely think Ray Horton will be a Head Coach at some point.

I think a lot of black coaches are defensive minded coaches (save for Hue/Caldwell) and the NFL is going in an offensive orientated style of play. So that could factor in.

Kelly will call the plays. I think Shurmur will be used more to groom the QB, as he's a former QB coach.

He also said that the Weeden pick was a sign of desperation and he's obsessed with Ryan Mallett, I think the Browns are going to trade for Mallett

Tomlin?

I wonder if Rooney hired a black guy just to make the Rooney Rule look effective lol

Yup. Tomlin was the last black head coach hired externally.

All the black head coaches since (Caldwell, Hue Jackson, Raheem Morris, Mike Singletary, Leslie Frazier) were already assistant coaches in the organization.

The Eagles have officially hired Pat Shurmur as their new Offensive Coordinator.

I know Shurmur won't be calling plays and that Chip will completely control the offense, but I still find this to be an extremely odd hire. Shurmur's offensive approach is the antithesis of Kelly's.
