It seems that the Jags and the Raiders are the only two of the seven who have formally appointed interim coaches. That's likely because those two vacancies happened during the season, while the other five happened after the season ended. Each of the five (except the Vikings), though, have AHCs who we can assume are functioning as interim HCs of sorts during the selection process.

While several teams are interested in former Eagles HC Doug Pederson, the Giants seem to be the front-runners for him. The Bears have interviewed both Pederson and former Dolphins HC Brian Flores in the last three days, along with four candidates for their GM position. (Seems to me they should settle the GM position before appointing a HC, though.)

Raiders players want Bisaccia confirmed as HC, but at least one report has team leadership looking at others.

https://www.yahoo.com/now/raiders-playe ... 19885.html

The Jaguars are apparently looking at Alabama OC Bill O'Brien.

https://news.yahoo.com/jaguars-coaching ... p_catchall

The Texans are interested in Flores, NE OC Josh McDaniels, and Tampa OC Byron Leftwich.

https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/texa ... id-culley/

The Dolphins have requested interviews with: BUF OC Brian Daboll, SF OC Mike McDaniel, DAL DC Dan Quinn, DAL OC Kellen Moore, AZ DC Vance Joseph, and BUF DC Leslie Frazier.

https://www.thephinsider.com/2022/1/10/ ... candidates

The Vikings are considering NE OC Josh McDaniels, DAL OC Kellen Moore, Pederson, and (long overdue), KC OC Eric Bieniemy.

First one down:

Broncos hire Packers OC Nathaniel Hackett, son of Paul Hackett. He is a Jon Gruden protege (Tampa era). Got his start in coaching as Assistant LBers Coach at the Manure Pile (2003).

The rush to hire Dallas OC Kellen Moore seems to have cooled off. He's just been moving up too fast, and the consensus is that he's just not ready yet. They think that he doesn't have the "commanding presence" to grab a team's attention....

Another one down, another one down, another one bites the dust!

NYG hires Bills OC Brian Daboll. There was speculation that Daboll would go to Miami to work with his former protege Tua Tagovailoa, but that didn't happen.

Multiple sources, not just the irresponsible Adam Schefter at ESPN, state that the Raiders have hired NE OC Josh McDaniels as HC. Hopefully, he's learned from his first failed stint as HC at Denver.

Derek Carr, who was clearly backing Rich Bisaccia from the get-go, has already stated his appreciation to Bisaccia on Twitter, and isn't venting any angst, as one might expect. His on-field deficiencies aside, Carr seems to be handling the situation like an adult, something professional athletes aren't always apt to do. Good on him.

Doug Pederson hired in JAX...leading fans to believe that the owner has lost all credibility. They were looking for Byron Leftwich, who allegedly pulled out of consideration, likely because he got the feeling JAX wasn't serious about the negotiation. Also, Pederson was the first to be interviewed 49 days ago. Fans are wondering why the delay.

Maybe there's something to Brian Flores' allegations after all. (They got deeper over the last couple of days during an interview with NPR, where he alleges that Evil Belichick has been a big part of the racist hiring proceses, accidentally texting him (thinking he was Brian Daboll) to congratulate him on getting the NYG job. SMH....

Saints OC Pete Carmichael Jr. turned down an interview request for promotion to HC. Wow. Who passes up promotion possibilities? Something must be brewing....

Current candidates include Chiefs OC Eric Bienemy, Flores, Lions DC Aaron Glenn, Saints DC Dennis Allen (failed as HC of Raiders), and Saints STC Darren Rizzi. If they're looking at STCs, why the heck they aren't going after Cowboys STC John Fassel is beyond me. He's the mastermind behind Sebastian Janikowski, Shane Lechler, Johnny Hekker, and Greg Zuerlein, and has some incredible fakes, some of which he hasn't pulled in the NFL yet. That makes him a worthy successor to the guy who had the guts to open the second half of a Super Bowl with an onside kick (pre-Goodell nonsense).

Apparently, Harbaugh thought the job was his, but the Vikes had questions about his leadership style and how he came to leave SF. They apparently didn't like the answers, and now Michigan has the PR nightmare of a HC interviewing for another job on National Signing Day, and coming back with his tail between his legs. Yet Harbaugh's return to Ann Arbor seems to be the best result for Michigan....
