Did you see something written somewhere? I'd like to read it. I see that Hue Jackson has made up some ground here.

its all specu;lation at this point and putting 2 and 2 together since they worked together as assistants in tampa and have remained close ever since.

all reports indicate tom clements wil in fact be replacing joe philbin as the OC in GB.

kinda suprised nobody has mentioned brad childress. i'd take brian billick in a heartbeat.

unfortunate for arians that brian shottenheimer took the OC job with fisher in STL.

for SURE arians was a better option than brian shotty.... right????

Has anyone come up with a legit list of candidates yet? I don't see clement being an option.

The top 3 candidates should be: Hue Jackson, Jim Caldwell, and Todd Haley. My $ is on Haley. Why? He's got Pittsburgh ties and he understands the importance of running the ball. In 2010 the Chiefs lead the league in rushing.

Brad Childress should also be a candidate... so make that 4 on my list.

Haley's a bit of a lightning rod, which is to say a dick. Even Whisenhunt doesn't want him back.

That's just not true. Whiz does want him back... problem is Whiz is not going to fire his current OC just to bring back Haley. Haley would have to take a different position other then OC...which Haley does not want to do unless he has to.... financially and professional Haley doesn't need to make such a move.


Haley clashed with some of his players according to reports. That all came from a couple of his players getting in his face on the sidelines. funny how it's Haley that has the problem and not the players.

I looked to me like Haley held his players accountable. Haley clashed with Matt Cassell. I think I'll take Haley's side on this one. Bill Cowher was fired up on the sidelines as well. We've all seen Cowher get in the face of a player or two over the years. I think this is the fire this team needs.

Jim Wexell tossed out this rumor about Jim Caldwell

@jimwexell James C Wexell
Put Jim Caldwell odds at 1-2 as Steelers' OC. A strong hunch. My guess: It was Tomlin's decision to fire Arians after friend came available.

http://twitter.com/#!/jimwexell/stat...80135723454464


Ed. B. of the P-G calls the Caldwell rumor nonsense

I saw someone write that Mike Tomlin probably fired Bruce Arians after his "friend,'' Jim Caldwell became available upon his firing as head coach by the Colts. Let's make some other stuff up while we're at it. Tomlin didn't fire Arians, he wanted him back but apparently not strongly enough he was willing to go to the mats for him for the second time in the past three seasons. Also, how do we know that Caldwell and Tomlin are "friends?" Because they coached together in Tampa Bay for one season, 2001, and on separate sides of the ball? Caldwell is 57, old enough to be Tomlin's father. Maybe they are friends and maybe Tomlin will hire him as his new offensive coordinator, but that's not why he fired Arians

The only reason Haley's fiery sideline personality was criticized....was because he didn't win as a HC. Bill Cowher was no different but everyone said Bill was a leader.... Haley is a jerk and his sideline antics were tame compared to Bill Cowher and some other coaches. Really I can't think of a better match then Haley...until I hear some other options I think Haley, Childress, and Caldwell should all be at the top of the list for the job.

I'm biased in favor of Haley. My dad is good friends with a first cousin of his and take this for what it's worth but Pioli was a real control freak apparently. Hearing this second hand through my Dad who heard it through the friend but it wouldn't shock me if it was true. I'm sure Haley is a jerk but if he wants to come here that would be fine. My first choice is probably Clements given the job he did with Rodgers but I bet GB makes him their OC now.
