I read that he'll be promoted to a co-HC position of sorts and Raheem will be promoted to DC. We'll see.

What in the hell does an assistant head coach do if he is not also the Coordinator on one side or the other? That's not a trick question, I really don't know. Is his job to help Jay Gruden with management of the team since its his first gig?
I know he got a pretty good zip on the ball. He has a quick release. . . once I seen a coupla' throws, I was just like 'Yeah, he's that dude.'"

I'd put my money on it Haz sticking around is just a mentor type deal, be there to help out Jay with his first HC gig.

That makes the most sense to me too, but I guess we'll see.

There are quite a few teams in the NFL with guys in the "assistant head coach" position. The Patriots even have one, believe it or not.

Sounds like London Fletcher would like to see the team move on from Haz:

“I think Morris as DC would be great choice! Brings energy & excitement! Would feel pretty good about HC, DC, & OC then!”


That's gotta say a little something, yeah?

Haslett is being kept, as least what I'm gathering from different articles, because he has a rapport with Gruden, and is still under contract. I wouldn't be surprised if he stayed for another year as a assistant HC, but I've also read that he'll most likely remain the DC.

When discussing titles, if I remember right Greg Blache was or defensive coordinator back in the day and Gregg Williams was AHC-Defense. The higher titles ultimately runs things. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong.

Having typed that, that makes me sad. Back then our defensive staff included guys like Blache, Williams, Jerry Gray, and Dewayne Walker. Now it is Jim Haslett. All four of those guys would be better than Haslett.

Pretty sure the ST coach, Kieth Burns, was fired the same day as Mike Shanahan.

Jay was sounding like Frank Caliendo doing an impersonation of his brother Chucky on his interview. Anyway, he said he hated coaching against the 3-4 and said he was planning on sticking with it. But he also said he was planning on interviewing a lot of coached so that may, or may not, mean the Haz is still going to be the D coordinator.

Jay works for the FO and he's going to have to have a good case for not wanting Haslett (or Haslett & Raheem) here running the defense

Jay can make a case for it but it's not like it's his decision

this is the new way of doing things here and it's all about accountability ... and ... don't forget, keeping those guys is much less expensive

I think that Jay Gruden is going to do a great job but he also knows there are some 'fights' that are just not worth having

I am looking forward to Haslett showing that he's a good DC and I'm sure he will be very motivated to show that if he gets the opportunity
Griffin will become a really good QB but it's going to take time

We are lucky to have Cousins - hopefully he can continue to play well

I wouldn't mind keeping a former NFL HC on staff in some capacity, because I think it will help Jay's transition. That said, I'd like to see what another coach can do with the defense.
