We seem to have a couple threads starting to talk about head coaches candidates...figure may as will be its own thread as it will likely sit vacant for at least a month.
Tanam is apparently talking with Austin, or will be, so that is a great sign. Pretty decent article:[url=http://www.leaderpost.com/sports/Busy+season+Riders+Brendan+Taman/5735026/story.html]http://www.leaderpost.com/sports/Busy+s ... story.html[/url]
Jones is likely a candidate, though as I have said elsewhere...the antics that his D tends to continually have on field is a bright red flag for me.
Chamblin is felt to be a leading candidate, though I feel his D underachieves, so I really question this.
O'Shea is apparently being interviewed, and while this surprised me the more I think about the O'Shea potential the more I like it...still not my top choice, but a great place to start interviewing. even bringing him on as an OC (with the new HC blessing this time!!!!!!!!!) would be interesting. He seams to be a good decision maker, because most of his ST tactics work out well, and his ST players must eat up his words, because they are usually pretty solid... so even as a HC it may be a good fit. he has always seemed to put the best ST in the league on the field, so he definitely deserves a look. I like the fact that he is like 40, and that he has shown a lot of creativity with the ST...therefore, I tend to think he would want a very mixed playbook out of his OC. Being a good HC has less to do with your technical abilities and more psychology...the ability to get people to buy into what you are saying...to soak it in...and the ability to make concise decisions...he seems to fit these roles...solid coordinators would round it all off.
now it says that there is a candidate from every team, plus others...
- I would suspect Milanovich, but he has turned it down before.
- I suspect both Jones and Dickenson from the Stamps...Jones was passed on before, so I suspect it would be the case again.
- you all know my thoughts on Dave
- from the Esks...Stubler? oye
- Not sure who they would key in on from the Bombers
- from BC...Shivers (that would be frickin hilarious)...Chapdelaine?
I know there have been several other names splashed around...Tom Higgins, Dunigan, a few from south of the Border...
