I think the hype wagon is helping Mr Harbaugh out a tremendous amount. He's probably going to be a very good coach... but 7 million for a guy with next to no NFL experience?

I'd say he's played his cards very well.

Wait, what??

The Denver Broncos dream coaching scenario.

We bring in Mularkey as HC, he brings Musgrave along to be the OC. Nolan is out since with Harbaugh or Cowher (both of Miami's big name targets) Nolan is likely being replaced by one of "their" guys. Where better for him to catch on than the defense he helped realign just a season ago with many of the same pieces he pursued still here?

Once Nolan is back in the fold its just a small step from there for him to bring his buddy Sporano with him as an "Assistant HC - Offensive Line" to coach up our OL. With Mularkey's connections from his Pittsburgh days and Nolan's connections as an established 3-4 DC we could go out and put together one hell of a staff behind that backbone to help them succeed.

Maybe bring in Singletary as Asst. HC - LBs while we're at it. Staff the team with overqualified, competent men who share a common work ethic and desire to succeed. Sure Sporano and Singletary would likely be jumping ship in just a few seasons, but a few seasons of that kind of leadership is what this team adrift needs.

Its a fantasy, but it a fantasy that the stars seem to be aligning to make at least possible.

His departure seems to have been for three reasons:

1. got to work with his personal friend, Sporano, in Miami.

2. got more defensive autonomy in Miami.

3. didn't get along well with McDaniels personally.

If Sporano is fired then 1 and 2 are out the window. 3 already is. If Nolan wants to keep working in the league where better than the team who's defense he started to turn around and convert to his scheme in '09? He'd effectively be a year ahead of the game compared to anywhere else.

The Mularkey idea is growing on me every day. He's a solid, proven coach, who was moderately successful at his first HC gig, which happened to be with a terrible organization. He could be the next Belichek.

I would love a Mularkey/Nolan duo. Nolan obviously had some insight into how to make this a successful defensive unit, and given some new talent might make it NFL worthy in a year or two.

I think Mularkey would be great for Tebow.

Drek's right though, Miami are openly and actively pursuing Harbaugh, how do you think Sparano and his staff feel at this point, he is still the coach. Nolan is close with him too, so he could be free.

Oh, then we could say 6 DC's in 7 years! The beginnings of consistency!

I really like this line of thinking and it would be a dream. My only concern is too many big name guys in one room. That's a lot of ego's to check at the door.

But thats the beauty of it. They aren't ego guys. Sporano, Singletary, Nolan, they all just want to win.

They also all probably want to be drawing a paycheck and working towards their next gig.

Right now Bill Calahan, the HC who replaced Gruden and had the Raiders in the Super Bowl, is an OL coach for the Jets. Dom Capers worked as a DB consultant for the Pats one year before going to Green Bay to run their now outstanding defense. Mularkey went from HC to OC with Atlanta to "do his time" before getting another crack at it. Its what failed HCs have to do in order to build themselves back up.

When you've got guys like Mularkey and Musgrave, coming form Pittsburgh and Atlanta where the defensive guys handled their side of the ball and the offensive guys handled their side of the ball you have guys who understand the distribution of responsibility and work. No one can be an all in one package like McDaniels and Shanahan both tried to be here.

That dovetails perfectly with bringing in a guy to run the defensive side of the ball for him. In this case Mike Nolan, who already knows most of the talent on the roster and the kind of system that has been installed here.

Now we obviously need a new OL coach and Mike Nolan happens to be close friends with a damn fine one currently in need of work by the name of Tony Sporano. A guy many viewed as a no ego foot soldier for Parcells given the next bump up, and likely not someone who would rock the boat in house. He does his job, he does it better than almost anyone, and he lets the results speak for themselves. Its his primary reason for getting ousted in Miami. Its not that he isn't good, he's just not exciting enough.

Same with Singletary. Another friend of Nolan's. With Martindale out we need a new LBs coach. Singletary was Nolan's LB coach in Baltimore and has never had a problem working under Nolan before. I'm sure he now understands that he needs to further develop his message and coaching techniques if he wants that HC title again in his career.

They're all guys who understand that success in the NFL comes from highly qualified people doing very good work on their one area of expertise. Its Football 101. Do your job and let the guy next to you do his. They'll all understand that turning around the mess the Broncos have become will get them all what they want sooner than later anyhow.

Maybe they all get better offers. But as of right now we could make a legitimate run at assembling that kind of staff. I don't think its going to happen, but it sure would be awesome and it doesn't take too many pieces falling into place for that chain reaction to occur.

Its hard to demote a guy in the NFL like that though. Its almost never done to my knowledge. Just doesn't seem like it sends the kind of message the locker room needs. Especially when the other option could be Singletary. For a several year hitch he's the perfect lieutenant for Nolan. A hard ass who will demand 110% from our players. About when his fire and brimstone gets old someone else has hired him to be DC or even HC and we bring in a new #2 for Nolan.

Of course that all depends on the least likely of all these moves, Singletary taking an Asst. HC - LBs job. Should that not work out trying to work around a demotion for Martindale becomes a lot more attractive.

And Xanders obviously worked with him in '09. We have multiple comments that the assistant coaches helped do our draft scouting that year (Ayers saying Wink worked him out, commented that he'd be our pick if he was on the board at #18). For that to have happened the DC obviously had to have been involved at some very real level in those discussions.

Right! That was what I was thinking......WTF? I don't know what the average salary for a HC gig in the NFL is, but this seems a bit high. Would'nt between 4-5 mil a year be reasonable. I mean the guy had 1 good year with Stanford, right? I wouldn't have a problem with that figure if he had a well established tradition of winning. Heck, even 3 or for 4 winning seasons. But one? For all we know he could be one and done.

I think Miami is playing this very poorly, and so is Harbaugh. Miami is treating Sparano and his staff like dirt by interviewing other candidates while he still has the job. And Harbaugh could be upsetting the "coaching fraternity" by agreeing to talk to a team that has a coach who hasn't been let go yet. Very unprofessional. They can have each other.

Miami looks like scumbags for getting into this **** while Sparano is still on the payroll. The Broncos should look elsewhere.

Right! That was what I was thinking......WTF? I don't know what the average salary for a HC gig in the NFL is, but this seems a bit high. Would'nt between 4-5 mil a year be reasonable. I mean the guy had 1 good year with Stanford, right? I wouldn't have a problem with that figure if he had a well established tradition of winning. Heck, even 3 or for 4 winning seasons. But one? For all we know he could be one and done.

He played & coached in the NFL,not as a HC but he did coach in the NFL. he then took the HC job at Cal took them to I think 11-1 consecutive seasons. then he became the HC of Stanford.

BTW,shanahan was getting 10 million a yr.

That's not even right, he didn't coach SDSU, he coached in some pioneer football league. The SDSU Aztecs were coached by Tom Craft in 2004 and in 2005 Chuck Long was named the HC.

somehow I'm not surprised by this. I got a feeling we'll be settling for whoever is willing to take the job.

Harbaugh came to Stanford from the University of San Diego, where he guided the Toreros to an impressive three-year overall record of 29-6 (.829), including back-to-back 11-1 seasons that netted a pair of Division I-AA Mid Major national titles in 2005 and '06.

The Denver Broncos dream coaching scenario.

We bring in Mularkey as HC, he brings Musgrave along to be the OC. Nolan is out since with Harbaugh or Cowher (both of Miami's big name targets) Nolan is likely being replaced by one of "their" guys. Where better for him to catch on than the defense he helped realign just a season ago with many of the same pieces he pursued still here?

Once Nolan is back in the fold its just a small step from there for him to bring his buddy Sporano with him as an "Assistant HC - Offensive Line" to coach up our OL. With Mularkey's connections from his Pittsburgh days and Nolan's connections as an established 3-4 DC we could go out and put together one hell of a staff behind that backbone to help them succeed.

Maybe bring in Singletary as Asst. HC - LBs while we're at it. Staff the team with overqualified, competent men who share a common work ethic and desire to succeed. Sure Sporano and Singletary would likely be jumping ship in just a few seasons, but a few seasons of that kind of leadership is what this team adrift needs.

Its a fantasy, but it a fantasy that the stars seem to be aligning to make at least possible.

This may be a wet dream but I am in! Sounds like a wet dream come true!

Yeah, I was a bit lost there. For 7 million a year we should check his coaching record for his sons Pop Warner team as well.

History has shown that hiring the first time head coach right out the college ranks always works.

History has shown that hiring the assistant coach from New England always works.

Fixed for ya.
