I'm thinking things like... Eddie George coaching RB's or Antoine Winfield coaching DB's... Linebackers coach... holy cow there are so many... Is anyone bringing back Troy Smith to coach QB's? How about Cris Carter to coach WR's?  So many great players... And yet so few coaching slots. This should be interesting!

Troy smith- QB I guess, not many good options. 

Eddie- RB he would be a recruiting monster. (robert smith if we are talking Xs and Os)

CC- WR recruiting monster and smart WR

John Simon if not Vrabel for Dline. 

Spielman or Laurinaitis (Intensity)

Doss/Winfield Both would do great. 

 

 

Mac..yeah

I like your list, the only one I would debate with is Chris Carter...based on the way Duron turned out, I might turn to someone else to coach.  But the guy does have an encyclopedias worth of WR knowledge.

You could make a case for Krezel at QB coach based on his brains and the fact that he won it all.  But it's hard to go wrong with either guy there.

If Tatum was still alive I want him for the defensive backfield. Archie for rb coach, Spielman for linebackers. Jenkins to coach wr. Krenzel to coach qb. Defensive line coach Vrable. Offensive line the pancake man.

The Nuge (edit - Mike, not the Motor City Madman) for placekickers, Tom Skladany for punters (Coach Tressel approved).

I am not very smart, but I recognize that I am not very smart.

I like your style there HOV and I'm going alone on this one and I am not saying he was the best we ever had but I would actually like to see Clarret come back and coach the RB's on the field only of course. I loved his passion especially in the NCG in Arizona.

How about former Buckeye coaches and assistant coaches? Tressel (SpecialTeams), Urban Meyer (QB and O coordinator), Nick Sabin (DB and D coordinator), Pete Carroll (WR), Earle Bruce(OL), Lou Holtz (RB), Paul Brown(Head of Football Operations and Co O coordinator), Woody Hayes ( HC). 

   I know I am missing a lot here but it is a start. 

Its good to be the king
