Mike Munchak, hopefully, will be under consideration for the

HC position. Offensive line is the key for pro teams and Mike knows what it takes to be a pro offensive lineman.

As most of the mentioned candidates have been fired, so has Mike. Reportedly, the main reason he was fired was because he was told to get rid of some assistants and he refused to do so.

He wouldn't get much lip from players either. He has been there and would garner respect from the players as he reportedly had in Tennessee.

He isn't in the Gruden or the Cowher popularity class but there is a good chance he can get the job done.
Pat Shurmur intrigues me a lot.

I hope he at least gets an interview.
And Munchak seems interesting as well.

I'd prefer that he have coordinator experience, though.
With a high likelihood

that the 1st round pick is going to be a QB I would prefer to bring in a HC with an offensive background.
i would look for someone with experience

coordinator experience required, HC preferable.

the HC can hire an OL expert. he doesn't need to be the expert, he just needs to be committed.
God, why?

The Titans stunk under his tenure. Under .500 twice, couldn't groom a young QB.
Don't see coordinator as a prerequisite  
gmenatlarge : 12/6/2017 2:54 pm : link
the HC needs to lead the team and delegate responsibilities. I think we have all seen enough of the HC having his head in the Chinese food menu. I want a guy responsible for the whole team, not just the offense or defense.
What???  
SLIM_ : 12/6/2017 2:56 pm : link
Do other posters outside of carpoon know who Munchak is?

He's been a HC at Tennessee for 3 years. Ok. He never was coordinator but the guy was head coach? He's always coached or played on offense. I'm very confused by some responses here.

Why? He was a colossal flop as a HC. What has he done since?
Can he still play OG?

Actually, any member of the Polish-American Sports Hall of Fame is a good guy in my book.

I'm also on the Pat Shurmer bandwagon.
The 2 named mention favorably

His offenses were top five in PPG in Philly in 13 and 14, but slipped to 13th in 15. He's turned Case Keenum into a Pro Bowl caliber QB this year. I think he's getting a ton out of average-ish talent in Minnesota this year. He helped Bradford have a great rookie year back with the Rams in 2010.

He's done well everywhere except the Browns. Everyone sucks on the Browns.
No

what we really need is a HC that has leadership and organization skills that have been proven in a winning scenario and last but not least a GM that can select talent that is NFL ready without a bunch of gimmicks and upside gambles.

Then things will fall into place. F all that we need a defensive coach, an oline coach, a this and that.
Both those names are uninspiring

Joe Bugel was the Mike Munchak of his day.

Legendary OL coach. 24-56 as a head coach.

What do you consider inspiring? A familiar name from the broadcasting booth that hasnt coached in 10 years? A college retread? Shall we give away a million first round draft picks to pry Belichick or Tomlin from their teams?

Personally, I dont need to be inspired. Just come in and do a good job. You know who’s not an inspiring name? Doug Pederson...
Mark my words..

Doug Pederson will derail that Philly team before the players do.

I could even see a playoff loss through a coaching gaffe.

As someone who hates the eagles more than all the teams in the history of the world, combined, I hope you're right.
