    I seriously doubt that Rob Ryan will get any phone calls, but I have heard Pete Carmichael's name mentioned as an outside candidate for a few interviews.

    O'Brien will end up coaching the Texans. Condolences to whatever sucker takes the Browns job.

    Rex Ryans job looks to be safe.

    Any NFL team that would offer him a gig would have to be desperate and would be making a huge mistake. It would be a bigger mistake for Sumlin to accept an offer.

    I'm wondering why Bill O'Brien would go back to the NFL when he took probably the most undesirable job in the country at the time, considering what happened and really kept that program from sinking into nothing. It's really amazing what he did there, which I guess is why he is such a desirable choice for a head coaching job at the professional level.

    O'Brien hasn't ever been an NFL head coach. That's the pinnacle and most every coach aspires to that. Ask Saban. More money. Easier job without excessive babysitting (ok maybe some but less than college), no recruiting, no having to make sure players remain eligible, etc. Get to live in Houston vs podunk Happy Valley, PA. That alone should seal the deal.

    It's easier from the standpoint that you mentioned, but the preparation that goes into each game and 100 hour work weeks definitely not easier than college coaches have it.

    Zero NFL experience to start with. He is a good college coach, I'll give him that, but you know that doesn't always transfer over to the NFL.

    Next, I don't see anything in his offensive philosophy that DCs in the NFL wouldn't shut down in short order. Chavis owns Sumlin's offense, what would the NFL do?

    Then there is a $5,000,000 buy out clause to consider. Who pays this? The NFL team? Considering they would have to pay him an equivalent amount, what team would pay an unproven coach $10MM? A desperate team might, but that doesn't make it a smart move. Suppose Sumlin mans up and pays the buyout himself, he would essentially become an unpaid intern, auditioning for a second year.
