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

    • That might always be the case, but when it's a DII guy who wasn't at the Combine, it's hard to imagine there was a ton of interest in him. Of course, all it takes is one team being in love with him. I'm sure there was another team expecting him to be a UDFA, mad because the Colts took him in the fifth. Get your guy, that's the most important thing.
    • Good point.  I think this has serious merit 
    • My take   1. We overachieved last season. Period 2. We played at KC 3. TY limited the offense because he was so injured.  4. We played a very very good coach with time to prepare and his guys got some rest too and time to scout the team. Remember, Reich is well known to Reid as well by now.  5. Not having Hooker really mattered 6. Play calling was a bit blah 7. How does Vinny automatic miss those kicks? 8. A strip sack for us turns into a strip sack for them a few plays later, that hurt.  9. A young team who wasn’t supposed to be in the playoffs, let alone a second game in the playoffs had some factor here.  10. KC had a pretty good team   my concern from that game would be how poorly our run game was going forward. Kelly better play better than he did this season or I don’t see a 15 million/yr contract coming his way in Indy. I think with a healthy TY, the additions of DF and Cain and Paris and others should really boost that offense. An offense with TY, Paris, Doyle, EE and Mack, now that’s gonna be a tough group to match up with and defend. Run or pass, heck coach, idk what they are doing lol.    Gonna be fun to see this team evolve and have better back ups coming off the bench. I just hope we have enough beef in the middle to stop the run and I just hope that Kelly was hobbled in that KC game because it was one of his worst games that year. 
    • This again boils down to you hanging on to 'this is how it's always been done.' And you don't get that I don't care about that rationale. I think it can be done better. Which is why, in my first post in this thread, I said "to me, it's a no brainer." To me. It should be obvious that this is my stated preference, not me saying that teams that don't do it this way are stupid.   There should be nothing more that I have to say about that, except you continue to rely on that appeal to authority, and I'm telling you that 'how it's always been done' isn't legitimate reason for not examining potential alternatives. Not just in this area, but in everything.      You're missing an important detail, and I think it's because you've put my argument in a box and are unwilling to actually examine it on its merits.   As I said initially, and have said since, my argument is to make this change six months sooner, not six months later. "Imagine if we had fired Grigson in June 2016 instead of January 2017." Did you miss that part, again? What about "if the Texans had waited until January 2020 to fire Gaine..."?    I want him in asap. You want him asap, but not until January.   My statement about it being just one draft is referencing the worst case scenario, which is 'we just blew a draft cycle by letting a lame duck GM stay,' to which I say 'get over it, I'm okay with that if that's what it takes to get the guy I want in the building, with the staff he wants.' And that's where my argument about it potentially being easier to interview candidates in the down season after the draft is critical. The Jets wanted Joe Douglas; he evidently didn't want to entertain a move during draft season, but jumped at it in May/June. (There's the matter of moving his family during the school year, etc.) In theory, this approach could make it easier to interview good candidates. Whether you agree with that or not, whether it's important to you or not, this is mostly an aside. As I said, this was my response to the alarmist reaction of 'they just blew a draft!' Which I think is overstated, especially in the Texans' case.     Not at all. Again, if Ballard started in June 2016, he theoretically could have changed coaches a year sooner.      This is a hindsight fallacy. Go back to the Texans wanting to hire Caserio. I'm not arguing that he's going to be a great GM, I'm arguing that he's the guy they want to hire, and he's available in June. Same for the Jets and Douglas. The Chiefs and Veach.    We know that every person hired doesn't succeed. I never argued that they do. That's true of whoever you rush to hire in January. The point is that there is always a pool of qualified candidates from which to choose. I won't be retracting that, I firmly believe it, and I said it when the Colts were interviewing coaches in 2012, when they interviewed GMs in 2017, and when they interviewed coaches in 2018. You choosing to reject that is pretty ridiculous, to be honest. There are always qualified candidates. Choosing the right one is a different story.   And again, if there's one guy you really, desperately want, why wait until January to get him?     You could give me the benefit of the doubt and assume that if I'm saying it, I mean it. Especially this far into the discussion...    And going back to what I said earlier, this is and always has been my opinion. I'm not offering studies and conclusive evidence to support this opinion because it's a personal preference, it's what I think would be best (although I have offered evidence and rationale to support my opinion, you've just chosen to reject, for reasons I don't agree with).    I'm okay with the disagreement. What I find personally off-putting is the insistence that, because you don't understand my angle, it means I either haven't actually thought it through, or I don't actually believe it. As I said earlier, I understand that general consensus disagrees with my viewpoint, but that doesn't mean I'm just going to conform. The fact that I'm presenting an argument in earnest should be enough.
