Try this logic on for size..."hiring from within" would also include former Steelers coaches as well...add Gailey, Gilbride, and Mularkey to the list. Not commenting on the likelihood of getting any of those, but still.
Hell, maybe even Ron Erhardt would come out of retirement. The parade must go on!
You can scratch the name in sentence 1, entry 2. There is no way I'd want Gilbride back
Gailey? Would be willing to try that. Mularkey? No question. As critical as I'm sure we were, the guy is a pretty darn good coach. Let's just say that I'll take any former coach who was able to win with Kordell Stewart and/or Tommy Maddox.
Let me throw another one out there: Dan Reeves. Then we could set the record for oldest assistant coaches in NFL history.
