Colts interview requests and confirmations (merge)

Recommended Posts

Nice, glad we got an official word on an interview request. Was getting just a lil worried seeing all the other teams with HC vacancies lining up all these interviews.

We might wind up turning this thread into the hub for all linked candidates, as more reports come out.

 

By the way, some rules for the hiring process as it relates to current NFL assistants/coaches:

The Colts, like every team, must follow the Rooney Rule, which makes it a requirement to interview at least one minority candidate in the proces.

 

The Colts can’t announce the hiring of a coach from another team until that coach’s season is finished.

 

Only coaches on staffs of eliminated teams can be interviewed immediately unless that team has a first round bye in the playoffs (e.g. McDaniels)

 

Coaches on teams that win the Wild Card game can be interviewed from the end of that game to end of the Divisional game on Jan. 14.

 

Coaches playing in the Super Bowl that have already had interviews can conduct a second interview no later than Jan. 28.

 

 

If we assume that the Colts will be interviewing Toub and/or Nagy from KC, those interviews can't happen until next week, which means we should buckle in for an extended hiring process. I'm fine with that.

They are asking to interview Steve Wilks from Carolina

According to Garafolo we have requested interview with Panthers DC Steve Wilks. Anybody know something about him?

Really do not want anything the patriots have! Despise the franchise! Bad enough that this season was horrible but on top having to hear about Brady and pats every ball game with the Brissett connection.  Just my take and how I feel!

Are you mis-guided here? If McDaniels is hired the ONLY thing you would want is the Pats offensive scheme that should have always been in place here. The routes, design, everything would hands down have this offense 100% more efficient regardless of who is under center

If mcdaniels does get the job, who does he bring with him staff wise or is that up to ballard ? 

 

They'll make those decisions together.

 

But if you look back at the staff McDaniels put together in Denver, it was kind of impressive. Hired Mike Nolan as DC, brought in Mike McCoy as OC and Adam Gase as an offensive assistant, etc.

I believe that! I see no reason he should be fired honestly. I actually think Bill is a good coach he has had garbage at QB til he got Watson.

No. I stated how I feel. May be wrong, but would rather win with something not patriot related. There is no guarantee he would have success here anyway liike anyone else. Would prefer going a different direction. Again not saying that I am right but how I personally feel. Will be a diehard fan regardless,  just not my preference.

Mike Nolan's defense stinks though.

Man, im a bit torn here as well. I dont hate many things, but USC, Patriots, and snakes are on my short list. But, I do respect them. Maybe with the first 2 comes a bit of jealousy as well. I would be lying if i didnt say that i wish we could have success such as the Pats have..

Fair enough, I think at the end of the day from a purely football business side of things, the cheating junk isn't going to ever amount to a hill of beans with Ballard. In the past it would've with polian, grigs, etc. Ballard strikes me as a guy who understands that winning trumps all else in this league or at least that's what I'm personally hoping for

Genuinely excited about this possibility. He seems to have learned his lessons and his offensive system is exactly the type I want Luck to be running. Hope it happens.

I don't know if McDermott is reliable. He only has about 4K followers but is local journalist. Noone else has reported officially that we've asked for interviews with Matt Nagy and Dave Toub.

I think he is a good coach too, Dude was winning 8-9 games a year with horrible QBs. Wouldve easily won 11 or maybe even 12 games this year if Watson stayed healthy.

Yea, know jealousy is part of it. Plus can't help to feel cheated by them out of at least one Superbowl. Just do not want to hear about the pats every week and especially a colts game. I am a big Duke basketball fan and have two studs on the Celtics. Can't pull for them because I really do not want anything out of Boston to win because of pats fans, lol! Also am an Orioles fan, then there is the red sox,  a different discussion.

Nagy seems like a pretty ineresting offensive minded coach and has also been in a good system in KC under Reid. A first time HC and a 2nd year GM scares the crap out of me though. Just seems very reminiscent to 6 years ago.

Please don't make the mistake of hiring Wilks. I'm not saying he can't be good, but the situation could not be more Pagano-esque if we tried. 1 yr DC that inherited a good defense.

I'm thinking it's to fulfill that having to interview a minority candidate. That said, I hope we interview a bunch of folks, be thorough just don't wait too long

    • I wouldn't consider #10 a diss..... but I have a bit of an issue with the Cowpies ranked #2 at the same time.   We not only shut them out last season, we out manned, out-muscled and intimidated them in a way that none of us have seen a Colts team do to any team in a long, long time.   You could say "well its only one game".... and that's true.   But that was a statement game, and I just don't see how Brandt can justify a #2 ranking for Dallas given each team's additions this off-season....not to mention all those other teams he has them ranked ahead of.   As for the Colts...on our own merits.... I would have us closer to the middle of the pack on this list, around 7th and certainly ahead of Dallas.
    • His mom sounds awesome.  
    • Sigh...........   This is beyond really frustrating.    You're accusing me of things I literally haven't done.     That's very Irish of you.    Really annoying.      You ask for benefit of the doubt while never giving it out yourself.   I've put certain things into bold.   I'll try taking them one at a time.   Your first bold...   that this is not me saying that teams that aren't doing this are stupid.    I'm sorry, but when you declare that you've come up that you think is clearly and obvously better,  that you think you've re-invented the wheel and sliced bread,  it certainly feels like you're casting a disapporving eye toward any team that's not doing things your preferred way as a matter of course.   Then you claim,  that I want Ballard in the building ASAP,  but not before January.    Let me see if you understand this word.....   NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!   Was that clear enough for you?       If Irsay had decided in the spring of 16 to fire Grigson and hire Ballard in the spring, I would've been ok with it.   It's not desirable,  but if Irsay made that call THEN,  I'd be ok with it.     Where YOU mis-read me,  is that roughly 95 of owners make this decision during the season.    They see things they don't like and they decide during the season to make a change -- typically when the season ends.    Sometimes, an exec will be fired during the season and someone like Dorsey comes in during the season to oversee things and learn about the organization.    I'm fine with that.  There's no record of me opposing that.   I start with January,  because that's when the business season starts for front office and coaches.   Period.   The NFL views it as preferrable.    But making the switch in the spring is doable, as I've said in every post, and which you have ignored or confused badly.    But if Ballard had been hired in the spring of 16,  I'd have been fine with it.   This isn't the first time I've said some version of this.    This is not some ah-ha moment.   As to the bold declaring that there are tons of qualified guys and that CHOOSING the best guy is another story.   Here's my reponse to that.   No.   nonsense.     They are the same story.    They are connected.    Because you play down the fact that most GM's and most HC's fail.   They get fired before their 4 or 5 year contracts expire.   The owner has seen enough and makes a change.   Saying there are always qualified guys is meaningless.    Because FINDING the best guy who will succeed, isn't just important,  it's EVERYTHING.   All 32 teams can announce they hired a qualified guy.    That isn't hard.    But the vast majority of teams are introducing his successor in a few years.    That's why a franchise like Pittsburgh has very little turnover either in HC or the front office.   While franchises like the Jets or Buffalo or Miami are introducing someone new so often, you can practically set your watch to it.     Generally speaking,  the new GM has a long history of scouting and evaluating talent.   The new HC has a history of success, both as a position coach and a coordinator.   They can easily be called qualified,  (though new guys like Kliff Kingsbury and Zack Taylor do NOT have a long track record of success)  But the vast majority of hires...   are soon enough fired.   That doesn't speak well to their qualifications.      As to you meaning what you're saying...   Of course you mean what you say and I stated that clearly.  I don't know why this should rub you the wrong way.  I literally wrote that I know you mean what you say.    I said what I said as a rhetorical point,  not an attacking point.    My ultimate point was made at the end of my first post to you.   You typically write persuasive arguments.    You're able to frequently made me see your viewpoint.    But not here.    You accuse me of not considering your argument.    I'm sorry,  I am considering what you write.   But I don't see the typical high quality Superman argument.   I don't see points that connect.    Your argument feels like the one you'd make for doable.   It doesn't convince me at all that it's preferable.  
    • Yeah, Ballard said he's a patient guy, and he doesn't mind waiting to pick. We almost traded back from 34 as well if Rock wasn't there. I personally love the "trade back" strategy at the end of round 1, and wouldn't mind doing it in most every draft. A late 1st for a mid-second and early/mid second (from the Redskins) over two drafts is fine with me!
    • Haven't done research on the 2020 draft yet, but if it ends up having an elite WR or OT, I wouldn't mind trading up this year. We'll have to see where we finish (hopefully 32 ), and make a decision from there. Ballard landing the Redskins 2nd rounder may be a brilliant move.
