Indianapolis Colts Coaching Candidates


Jim Caldwell may be gone, but so too is Jeff Fisher, whom many thought would be a natural fit for the Indianapolis Colts head coaching job.    We know that the offensive assistants won’t be promoted since they were fired yesterday.  So, dear Colts fans, who might land in the chief chair for the 2012 season?  Well among the many names that have surfaced in the wake of Caldwell’s demise are:

  • Marty Mornhinweg
  • Brad Childress
  • Steve Spagnuolo
  • Marc Trestman
  • Todd Bowles
  • Jim Tressel
  • Mike Zimmer
  • Jon Gruden
  • Bill Cowher
  • Wade Phillips
  • Dom Capers
  • Dennis Allen
  • Joe Philbin

There are all kinds of track records, personalities, and tea leaves in that bunch, so it all really just depends on owner Jim Irsay’s mood.  It should make for good theater, though.
