Rex Ryan, its scary to think what he could do at a school like Michigan or Penn State.

Josh Mcdaniels would also be an amazing college coach

completely disagree. his press room demeanor leaves alot to be desired-- doesnt show a whole lot of living room potential. and if you havent noticed, he doesnt get top talent and steer it success like a saban has, he gets smart, hard working guys who are reliable and uses an all time QB to direct traffic on the field. belichick could never succeed in a 20 hours per week environment. lest we forget, belichick was 41-57 pre brady.


Bill Belicheck is actually a very funny guy in person. He likes to frick with the media and do his coachspeak but hes got a great sense pf humor that comes out in interviews once in a bluemoon

You get him one on one and he could do very well in college.

I don't know how good of a recruiter Lovie would be. He's a very boring guy with no personality. But I can still see him being a successful coach just based on his defensive acumen similar to what Tommy Tuberville was like at Auburn.



Lovie recruited lights out at Tennessee in the 90s.

Tomlin for sure. Successful as a pro, young enough to still be able to relate well to high school and college players.

But he also has a background in college. He was an assistant in the college ranks before Dungy brought him in as a position coach.

I'd also include any other coach who recently won a Super Bowl. As someone already mentioned, they can show up with their ring. They can also use their NFL connections as a selling point. A coach with an NFL background can do a better job of preparing players for a pro career and can use his connections to help his guys get a closer look from NFL teams.

BB would do good at a smaller school like Boise State where he doesn't have to worry about boosters and shit
completely agree. or a stanford/NWern/vandy type where he can get smart players who dont leave early and are more team oriented than stat-padding-for-the-next-level oriented

like chuck weis, right?


Are you really comparing the two?
yes. everyone said that all chuck weis had to do was show up with his fistful of jewelry and it would seal the deal. it worked at first, but eventually his coaching acumen proved ineffective in college.


ultimately i feel BB would suffer the same fate. i think he'd be more like his pre-brady days as he wouldnt have a HOF QB to mask his mistakes. im a huge BB fan and i think its a unanimous top 2 coach in the league if hes not the top spot. but hes got serious flaws-- anyone notice he cant draft a college WR? hes about 0 for 25 in the category. hes a defensive mastermind, yet hasnt fielded a decent defense since he had tons of old veteran players (tedy bruschi, vrabel, harrison) back in 07. in college you dont get to play 12 year vets. you'd think he could coacch up these young guys hes drafted, but theyre still a work in progress

belichick is the perfect NFL coach but wouldnt be nearly as successful in college.

I don't know if they have enough charisma to be top-notch recruiters in college.


This is what it boils down to. Most would be excellent X and O guys, the college schemes are so much more simple.

It would all come down to recruiting skills.
