Tice fired. And it's about time. Who's going to take over next year?

Good question. Looks like there could be a lot of coaching vacancies over the offseason.

Rumor has it that the Vikes are looking for a defensive minded coach to run the show next year. I am sure Gregg Williams probably tops the list of guys they are going to interview.

Not a good day for a lot of "Mike" coaches in the league, eh?

Packers - Mike Sherman, clearly not the man for the job from day one. never looked comfortable. made some bad roster moves as a failed attempt at GM. does Farve live up to his word and walk now that Sherman is gone?

Vikings - Mike Tice, hope he has some cash left over for his knee surgery. I can't see him getting a head coaching job anytime soon but a lot of the Vikings failures weren't his doing.

Rams - Mike Martz, he'll make a great offensive coordinator for any team.

Texans - Dom Capers, good luck finding a high school team to coach.

About time Thompson cut Sherman loose. It's not his fault that the offense was continually ravaged by injuries but he sure didn't do much to try to rally the team and win some of those close games.

Perhaps Charlie Weis will take another look at coming to the NFL. Good luck finding someone worthwhile to take over the mess in Houston but Green Bay, Minnesota and St. Louis have all been successful teams very recently. It would take just a little bit of effort top right those ships.

Houston's "advisor" Dan Reeves will probably take over there. But look for Capers to take over once anpther expansion team comes into the league. (didn't he start off in Carolina?)

So is Herm Edwards taking over for Vermeil?

He has already said he's staying in New York. I trust the Herminator.

I really like Herm Edwards. But is it just me, or does he seem really unhappy w/his job? He always seems stressed.

Can you blame him? Coaching the NY Jets is probably one of the most stressful coaching jobs in sports (maybe only topped by the Yankees).

I don't think there is any way in hell I would want that job. If nothing else, I would punch out members of the press. lol

I think he likes his job okay, he just hates dealing with some of the morons in the NY media.

Apparently we can add Haslett to the list as well. At least that is what I heard on the radio a little while ago.

Weis wants to stay at Notre Dame so we can coach his son and graduate him. i doubt he'll be leaving their anytime soon.

Haslett's firing was probably a welcome one. I can't see anyone would want to be involved w/ the Saints at this point. how do they expect to sign any decent free agents?

Yeah, from what was being said during the last Panthers/Saints game Haslett had pretty much told the team to let him go if they were not going to have a permanent home next year.

What first rounder/coach/free agent is going to want to play for the Saints?

I think Sherman should stay in GB just for what he has had to deal with this year regarding injuries. It's a little harsh on him to complain about rallying for victories when you have the 4th and 5th string backs and wideouts on the field most of the year.

I hope Ted Thompson knows what he's doing in Green Bay. There are so many openings that getting top-notch coaches will be difficult. ESPN Radio even suggested some teams may swap coaches. I just hope we don't get some recycled loser like a Jim Fassel or something. I'd prefer a hot coordinator from somewhere.
