No way ........ College coaches don't transfer well into the NFL as head coaches. The only ones that come to mind Jim Harbaugh, and Pete Carroll. Carroll was an NFL head coach before he was a college head coach. And Jim Harbaugh played in the NFL. I think the reason college head coaches don't make it in the NFL is because they can't treat men like they treat students. Nick Sabin is a good example of that.

No way I would want Tressel...not that he'd be any worse than Shurmur but his way of coaching was horrible and painful to watch...no Tressel ball in Cleveland please.

My reasons against it:

Ok, here is my argument against Jim Tressel for head coach of the Cleveland Browns.

1. He is a college football coach. He has zero experience coaching at the NFL level, and we have seen many other college coaches fail at the NFL level.

2. His biggest fault in my opinion is that he is loyal to a fault. The Buckeyes were recruiting blue chip offensive linemen left and right and they were not developing them at all. They were going on to have mediocre careers. I can only think of one that did anything after OSU and that was center Nick Mangold. He should have fired Jim Bollman several years ago as he was failing miserably.

3. The second biggest fault of Tressel was his complete lack of any halftime adjustments. He got away with this at OSU because in many cases his team had more talent than his opponent. Therefore, they were able to execute to a fairly successful degree even when the opponent knew what was coming. However, that didn't pan out so well in 2 of the 3 National Championship games his teams were in where the talent level was more equally matched.

4. I don't think he has a strong enough network of guys who could be really good coordinators and position coaches at the NFL level. I could be wrong about this, but I just don't see it.

I like JT a LOT. I really do. Even amidst that stupid scandal, I still like him. If it weren't for Urban Meyer I would wish he was still partroling the sideline at OSU. However, I do not see him as a good fit for the head coaching position for the Cleveland Browns.

Tressel not NFL coach material, he won at OSU because the Big 10 as a conference is weak,very little competetion.

The big 10 wasn't nearly as weak then as it is now. However, I still don't believe he would do well as an nfl head coach. I liked him at the college though.

Why in the world would you want another head coach in Cleveland that has absolutely no head coaching experience in the NFL? Isn't that exactly what we have had forever?

Forget our rooting interests. JT was a manager of kids, not men, and proved to turn a blind eye toward things that didn't immediately impact his team. I actually like Tressel, but I think as an NFL head coach he would be terrible. I've never seen a valid argument supporting him as an NFL candidate.

The thing about Tress is whether he can relate and communicate to that age of person. His offense is made for the NFL. Conservative with 4-5 long down field throws a game. He is good at managing a game. Some may not believe this but look not just at the 2002 championship, but the other BCS games. May have lost championship games but crushed K-State and touch down jesus. Also beat Oregon and Arkansas. Not a gimmick coach like Spurrier. Just a matter of if the team would respect him and follow him. Huge OSU fan. Sucks the way he went out,but love the Hire.

Ok, so not many are liking the idea of Tressel for coach. I don't like it at all. However, who could be the next head coach? It's clear we need one as every week Shurmur makes a bone headed move and Haslam just grimaces at the idiocy of it.

The short list (pure speculation):

John Gruden
Any Reid
Norv Turner
Brad Childress
Steve Mariucci
Herm Edwards
Jim Mora Jr
Mike Zimmer
Kevin Gilbride


The only ones on this list that interest me would be Mooch or Edwards. I wouldn't want any of the others.

Banner's ego is too big to go for anyone that you would be familar with. He wants to hire unknown assistant guy like when he "found" Andy Reid. Although at the time of Andy Reid's hiring, I'm not sure Banner was in the position to "hire' anybody.....Be careful what you wish for.....

The d-cordinator for NYG has been thrown around some. Maybe get could be the guy that Banner "discovers". They need to discover someone because Shurmur sucks!!!

Jim Mora is coaching UCLA right now... he has them on the right track. Although I am sure he'd like to get back into the NFL.

Norv Truner?........... ummm....... no lol

Steve Mariucci....... no......

You Play To Win the Game .... how do you like my cool socks Herm Edwards? NO !!! lol

If Banner has the big ego thing going I don't see a Gruden hire... it wouldn't work.

Childress?.......... maybe. We know Childress calls down plays to Shurmur..... how many of those plays does Shurmur call?

I'm not that familiar with the others.

Probably not a good fit with the Browns. I'm not so sure that coach is the issue right now anyway. The players are playing hard but they are young and need a few more players to get over the hump. A little defensive backfield help and they would be well on their way to better days.
