Meet 2018’s NFL head coach candidates

Meet 2018’s NFL head coach candidates
meet-2018’s-nfl-head-coach-candidates

Vance Joseph carried high expectations with him when he was hired to take over for the Denver Broncos. Joseph inherited a dominant defense in Denver and the team got off to a fast 3-1 star. But then a revolving door of Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler, and occasionally Paxton Lynch at quarterback paved the way for an eight-game slide in the middle of the season. Joseph’s squad finished last in the AFC West in his first season.

We don’t know what the future holds for teams that are in the market for new head coaches. But we do know which candidates are likely to be in the running for those openings.

Joseph’s squad finished last in the AFC West in his first season.

We don’t know what the future holds for teams that are in the market for new head coaches. But we do know which candidates are likely to be in the running for those openings.

"It's pretty cool to have been able to make it this far," Paradis told Denver7. "Health is such a luck game, and I have really been very lucky so far."

 Paradis knows no other way than to roll up his sleeves,A former walk-on at Boise State and sixth-round choice, and deal with aches and pains. He takes pride in hard work and practicing. In fact, not being able to work out last year during the week drove him crazy. His teammates voted him as the Ed Block Courage Award winner a year ago for his toughness and character (inside linebacker Todd Davis won the award this season). Paradis earned Pro Bowl alternate honors last season and has been one of Denver's most reliable offensive performers this year. He hit 50 consecutive starts last week against Washington.

After a highly disappointing 2017 season, the Giants cut ties with head coach Ben McAdoo and general manager Jerry Reese before the season ended, confirming big changes are in store for a team that has won two Super Bowls with quarterback Eli Manning.

 the next task is hiring a head coach. The Giants appear to have several candidates in mind,After hiring Dave Gettleman as general manager, though the list could soon be dwindling. Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien was thought to be a potential candidate but he reportedly expects to stay put, while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are also bringing back Dirk Koetter.

 so a decision may not be made for several weeks. Here's an early look at who the Giants might hire.,Four out of Giants' top five coaching candidates are in the playoffs

The former Detroit Lions head coach and current Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator is considered the favorite, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. In five seasons with the Lions, Schwartz reached the playoffs once and had a 29-51 record.

But Schwartz, 51, has done a solid job running the Eagles' defense over the last two seasons. He is considered a safe choice.

Steve Spagnuolo

The Giants defensive coordinator is among the most respected defensive coordinators in the NFL and has stated that the Giants head coaching job has "always been something in my heart for a long time." 

 58,Spagnuolo, is still considered a longshot. As interim head coach, he had a 1-3 record and had a 10-38 record as head coach of the Rams.

Jordan Raanan reported that the Giants requested permission to interview the Vikings offensive coordinator. The Michigan native is considered a top target for the Lions vacancy and is expected to be interviewed by the Arizona Cardinals. It wouldn't be surprising if Shurmur gives a stronger look to other teams as opposed to the Giants.

It seems almost a given that McDaniels will get a second shot at a head coaching job after his mostly disappointing run with the Denver Broncos in 2009-10. But it remains unclear if it will be with the Giants, especially since the Giants went with McAdoo in 2016.  At 41 years old, McDaniels is the youngest candidate on this list and the New England Patriots offensive coordinator has had a successful run with the team since his arrival in 2012. He might think there's a chance he will one day replace Bill Belichick. 

Snatching away one of the Patriots' best minds would be a great start to Gettleman's career.

 Gettleman is reportedly keen on the Patriots defensive coordinator. Gary Myers of the New York Daily News listed McDaniels and Patricia as "1 and 1A" in the coaching search. ,Like McDaniels

 Patricia seems like the best fit for the Giants if McDaniels takes a pass.,Patricia is 43 years old and is from New York state. Though he has never had a head coaching job

 taking with it the Jets and the Texans and the Buccaneers and the Broncos and the Raiders and all the other teams that proved to perhaps be quite good at some things but certainly not excellent at playing football.,The often interminable stretch that is the NFL regular season has finally ceased to exist

 of course,That sentiment is, a luxury of living in New England, where for the better part of two decades, the net result is a mostly predictable regular season damn near every single year., no season has ever really begun until January. Folks in most NFL cities around the country don’t have the same luxury, but when the greatest coach and the greatest quarterback combine forces

 the Patriots were given the highest over-under for win total from the past decade at 12.5. They lost Julian Edelman in August,Entering the 2017 season, they lost Dont’a Hightower in October, they went all year without Malcolm Mitchell and Shea McClellin, they lost their two top picks to injured reserve before the season began, and yet — AND STILL — here they are sitting at 13-3. , they executed a moderately controversial midseason trade of their backup quarterback, they dealt with the absurd stripping of their 2016 first-round pick and their 2017 fourth-round pick,[url=http://www.steelersfootballauthentics.com/ramon-foster-jersey-authentic]Womens Ramon Foster Jersey[/url], they got embarrassed on their home turf twice in the first four weeks of the season

 what the Patriots have done this year really is remarkable. They’ve been carried at times by the offense,Despite the complaints about the monotonous regular season, and other times by the defense. Special teams has subtly remained a critically important part of the operation. Coaching decisions have been on point, with no mortar kicks or Steven Jackson games popping up in December. Players who weren’t necessarily stars — like Chris Hogan, Dion Lewis,[url=http://www.steelersfootballauthentics.com/marcus-gilbert-jersey-authentic]Womens Marcus Gilbert Jersey[/url], and cornerback Stephon Gilmore rebounded from a nightmare start to put forth a largely solid season.,082-yard,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/joe-haden-jersey-cheap]Womens Joe Haden Jersey[/url], and Kyle Van Noy — became significant contributors. Newcomer Brandin Cooks compiled a 1, seven-touchdown season

 a 13-win season in New England will be discarded as a terrible waste of a campaign if the team doesn’t reach the Super Bowl. Those high expectations around here are a double-edged sword.,Of course

But that just speaks to the standard set by Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. They won’t do it forever,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/cameron-heyward-jersey-cheap]Authentic Cameron Heyward Jersey[/url], they’re as good as they’ve ever been. That’s worth at least some reflection here during the Patriots’ annual playoff bye week.,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/anthony-chickillo-jersey-cheap]Authentic Anthony Chickillo Jersey[/url], but for the time being

Oh! And there was also a game on Sunday. A real one — it counted in the standings and everything! So here are all of the leftover thoughts from the Patriots’ 26-6 win over the hapless New York Jetterbockers.

 the Patriots finished the season allowing 18.5 points per game. That’s the fifth-best mark in the NFL. Literally nobody saw that coming after they allowed 32 points per game through the first month of the season.,–After allowing six points against the Jets

 and I hope that you had plenty of cash to spend during the holidays after winning your championship. We're heading into the NFL playoffs,Hello and Happy New Year to everyone. Thank you for reading this column throughout the 2017 fantasy football season, and the news cycle never stops. There are plenty of coaching changes, hockey or another sport.,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/ryan-shazier-jersey-cheap]Womens Ryan Shazier Jersey[/url], injury news and declarations by underclassmen in college. It's never too early to start scouting for fantasy football in 2018, getting a jump on those slackers who have turned their eye to basketball

 but instead the Cincinnati Bengals surprised the football world by inking head coach Marvin Lewis to a two-year contract. After a disappointing season it looked like Lewis was on the ropes. Perhaps it was his team's no-quit attitude in Baltimore,The coaching reality island was expected to boot another contestant on Tuesday, including a touchdown in the final minute to ruin their rivals' season. Perhaps the Buffalo Bills fans called Bengals owner Mike Brown and lobbied on Lewis' behalf. It's uncertain what exactly transpired to make Lewis a certain goner about a week or two ago, to receiving a new two-year deal. The team will not be bringing back defensive coordinator Paul Guenther, however. His deal is up and was not renewed, if the Raiders can finalize that hire at some point., so he'll be free to move along. It might not take long to find gainful employment, as he is reportedly a leading candidate for Jon Gruden's staff in Oakland

 and a premier wide receiver in A.J. Green,Lewis' return is interesting. They have a potential star in the making with Joe Mixon, while they have plenty of young depth with Giovani Bernard, if everyone can stay healthy. It would be nice to see Tyler Eifert return to 100 percent and be the red-zone presence he has been in the past when healthy., Tyler Boyd and John Ross. He could look very good again, very soon

 interviewing offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter and defensive coordinator Teryl Austin on Tuesday. Austin,The Lions are not letting the grass grow beneath their feet after dismissing head coach Jim Caldwell. They have turned their attention in house first, in particular, has been a hot coordinator name for years, and if he doesn't land a head coaching job in Motown, it would be outstanding news for the likes of Matthew Stafford and his fantasy value heading into 2018., but his name is relatively new to the coaching rumor mill. However, it wouldn't be surprising to see him find a head coaching job elsewhere. It's hard to imagine he'll go through the interview process for yet another offseason and settle for a coordinator job yet again. Cooter has been a solid OC, if Cooter were to stick around in Detroit in a head coaching role

 but they're looking to bring a former NFL head coach and familiar face back into the fold. The Ravens are reportedly interested in former Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano,The Baltimore Ravens are fine with John Harbaugh at the helm, who served as the defensive backs coach and defensive coordinator for one season before shuffling off to Indy. Dean Pees is retiring, competitive even with the winless Cleveland Browns as a member., so the team needs a DC. It seems like a natural fit. Pagano is a brilliant defensive mind, and the Ravens defense would continue to be a nasty unit in the competitive AFC North. Well

 they're expected to interview New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels for the heading coaching position on Thursday. That's the first of a handful of interviews he has scheduled,Speaking of the Colts, including the Chicago Bears and New York Giants on Friday. He continues to be a hot name in the coaching search area. And what's not to like? Sure, future Hall of Famer Tom Brady can make anyone look like a star, while also transforming Rex Burkhead from a nobody to a fantasy stud before he suffered a season-ending knee injury., but remember, this is the same OC who made LeGarrette Blount into a stud last season

If McDaniels doesn't land in Chitown, perhaps Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy will be their man. He has been rumored to Chicago and Indy this week. The Bears have requested permission for an interview, cheering against the Chiefs so they get a crack at their man before some of the other vacancies are filled and the candidate pool starts to dwindle.,[url=http://www.steelersfootballauthentics.com/vince-williams-jersey-authentic]Authentic Vince Williams Jersey[/url], and he won't be able to interview with the team until the team is done with their postseason run. So Chicago and Indy might be really big fans of the Tennessee Titans this weekend

 and they promoted Terrence Magee from the practice squad from the active roster. It might be good news for Tevin Coleman's outlook in Saturday's game on the road against the Los Angeles Rams. They ranked 28th in the regular season in rushing defense,A lot of the injury news for the Wild-Card Round of the playoffs is coming from the running back position. The Atlanta Falcons held RB Devonta Freeman (knee) out of practice Tuesday, allowing 122.4 yards per game with 15 touchdowns. The Rams also yielded 12 rushes of 20 or more yards, and four runs of 40 or more yards. If Freeman is unable to play on Saturday, Coleman might be an attractive pick in postseason fantasy pools and DFS play. WR Julio Jones (ankle, and not because there is any real chance he'll be out of their playoff game in L.A., ribs) was held out of practice Tuesday, but it's believed to be more of a mid-week veteran's rest

 he suffered a torn medial collateral ligament and claimed that he feels he would be able to play through the injury. The Titans have an investment and do not want Murray to make his injury worse by playing,The Tennessee Titans held RB DeMarco Murray (knee) out of practice Tuesday. Remember, if that's even possible. Derrick Henry is fully expected to shoulder the full load against the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday afternoon. The Chiefs ranked 25th in the league in rushing defense,[url=http://www.steelersfootballauthentics.com/marcus-gilbert-jersey-authentic]Authentic Marcus Gilbert Jersey[/url], giving up 118.1 yards per game with 15 rushing touchdowns allowed in the regular season. It might be a grind,[url=http://www.steelersfootballauthentics.com/vince-williams-jersey-authentic]Womens Vince Williams Jersey[/url], however, Henry is a great postseason fantasy play and DFS option heading into Arrowhead., as they allowed just six runs of 20 or fewer yards, and no runs of 40 or more yards. Still

Quick Hits: Carson Palmer announced his retirement from the NFL on Tuesday. Well,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/cameron-heyward-jersey-cheap]Womens Cameron Heyward Jersey[/url], as you'll remember he once retired as a member of the Cincinnati Bengals,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/joe-haden-jersey-cheap]Authentic Joe Haden Jersey[/url], actually it's his second retirement, and unlikely he is coming back. With head coach Bruce Arians also calling it a career, precipitating a move to the Oakland Raiders. This time, though, it's for real,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/ryan-shazier-jersey-cheap]Authentic Ryan Shazier Jersey[/url], the Cardinals will take on a very different look in 2018. … Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) reportedly underwent a "minor" surgery, having work done on his left shoulder for a damaged posterior capsule. He also had a procedure on the left shoulder last offseason., but once the QB went down to a knee injury, according to the Houston Chronicle. Fuller was a fantasy revelation in the middle of the season when pairing with QB Deshaun Watson, Fuller struggled with the turnstile under center before suffering more injuries of his own down the stretch. His fantasy value is hard to pinpoint in 2018. Will prospective fantasy owners remember his red-hot month-long run, or his multitude of injuries? … Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian is set to go under the knife on Wednesday
