DC Options should Wink go to Indianapolis

Angel Eyes : 1/27/2023 1:33 pm
As an offshoot of the thread about Wink Martindale getting a second interview with the Colts, what coaches would be on your radars for defensive coordinator should Wink get hired as the Colts' head coach? Wink, for example, was interested in having Drew Wilkins succeed him, but should Wilkins follow him to Indianapolis, there would likely be contingencies.

Mike Zimmer was admittedly on my radar, but he's now at Colorado. Another option could be George Edwards, who worked with Andre Patterson for six years under Zimmer at Minnesota.

would be someone gets promoted within the system.
I forget who, but believe it's either one of the LB coaches

or DL coach that Wink told Daboll to hire as DC if it didn't work out for him (Wink).
Drew Wilkins

OLB coach who’s currently being interviewed for a DC job but I can’t remember where.
Jerome Henderson is another internal candidate

Duggan tweeted exactly what you said. From the list posted Fangio please. But he might be hired by Miami before Wink leaves.

Unless he opts to go the route that Daboll went and go from a pool of people he hasn't worked with. From an article not too long ago in The Athletic I recall Wink being very high on and complimentary of the process Daboll went with to gather this staff.
If the Giants Like Wink's System and Want to Keep It,

they are not likely to look outside. Don't know if any of the assistants look like potential DCs.

I think Giants have to give permission to poach Wilkins.

I gotta imagine Henderson or Wilkins gets promoted.
