I'm curious to see what the board sentiment is here.  

There are good reasons for continuity, for Wade, for young blood, for other experienced voices in the room.

Obviously we don't have a lot of names outside of retreads and a few of our own assistants.  I'm also interested in John Chavis at LSU, but I don't feel like I know enough.  Could merge this with the DC candidates thread, and I'll add anyone that makes sense to this poll, but cast your votes!

I'd go with Wade Phillips, he's been successful as a DC every where he has been.

He tried to fit it up but he wasn't in his gap.

I voted O'Neil.  If it is true Pettine wants him as DC I have to assume O'Neil understands Pettines scheme pretty well.
This would mean the D wouldn't have to start over again with a completely clean slate next season.

Butler from Pittsburgh (LeBeau disciple) or O'Neil would be ok with me....Phillips as the not so dark horse.

I voted Wade, but want to know more about Pepper Johnson.

Mike Singletary is nice in name and player rep, but I dont remember being impressed with his defenses.

W A D E

The man has a track record of taking over bad defenses and making them good in one season.

With the talent we have plus the off season to acquire missing pieces we could very well have a better defense next year than we did this year.

I go Wade as well...He's a vet DC and I think the transition would be easier...Houston had one of the poorer Defenses in sacks and takeaways, but still finished in the top 10...Wade can coach Defense...A 1st time DC would scare me to death... B-)

Kirby Smart or Wade.

Edit: Actually, I think that Smart deserves a separate spot on this poll. :)

Money might have something to do with it. Not that "Ralph is cheap", although he is notoriously worse when it comes to coaches than players. I just think Smart is in a good spot at Bama, and since it's just another DC job, it would take a lot of dough to move him. And even with the cash, he still might not be interested.

I would love to see him reunited with Dareus and the hiring would all but guarantee Mosley at #9.

Voted O'Neill, but I bet he follows Pettine.  If we scrap the system that was in place, I'd vote Wade, although I can't see him coming here again.

All true, but it would be truly GREAT to have him "in place" if you know what I mean......
