I have said numerous times that bringing in college coaches rarely works.  Someone name a college head coach that has transitioned well into the NFL as a head coach?  The only one I can think of is Pete Carroll, but he was an NFL head coach first.  I see them bringing in someone like Eric Bieniemy, the OC for the Chiefs.  Reid said he is ready.  Look at how many of Reid's coaches have transitioned well into head coaching jobs.  I don't think McDaniels is a good pick...too many of Belichick's coaches have not transitioned well into head coaching jobs.  There is also the QB coach for the Rams.  This team needs a fresh perspective for offense and NFL experience.  I do like the idea of Arians.  I don't like the idea of Ben Mcadoo...he flopped in NY.

Also...on a side note, I hope this team tanks the rest of the season.  Right now they have the #10 pick.  3 of the last 4 games are against teams that are further up in draft order.  The Giants have the 5th pick with a 4-8 record.  The Saints pick that the Packers own is going to be in the mid to upper 20's already.  Keep losing!!!

If we are looking at the results on the field, 12-1 seems to be far from a "rough" season....  Obviously all of the stuff with Zach Smith probably makes this as "tough" as any season he has had however.

Jim Harbaugh?

Went from San Diego/Stanford to going 13-3? and making the NFC Championship in his first season with the 49ers and then the Super Bow the next season...  Believe he made the NFC Championship in three out of his four years and never finished with a losing record as the Head Coach of the 49ers.

Jim started in the NFL as a QB coach in Oakland and had reasonable NFL career.  I would say he is more like Carroll than like Urban Meyer, but I will give you Harbaugh.  Again, most college head coaches don't transition well to the NFL.

HOw about Jim Harbaugh and his success he had at San Francisco after leaving Stanford. He was a successful college coach who transitioned well into the NFL. ALso Bill O Brien of Houston isn't bad as he started at Penn State.

Harbaugh / O Brien work because they run pro systems  , Chip Kelly admitted his system and those like it cannot work long term in the NFL because of the difference in how the officials control the clock .

What's funny is all the stuff that went on during his time at Florida was arguably worse.

Chris Rainey anyone?

I have no idea what to make of this...This was tweeted today by Winston Moss, Associate Head Coach/Linebackers coach.

Ponder this... what Championship teams have are great leadership! Period! It’s not the offensive guru trend, it’s not the safe trend. Find somebody that is going to hold #12 and everybody in this building to a ! Period! !

And he's gone.

Judging from his tweets, maybe they fired him for his Da U-level grammar? In any case, mildly amusing that a defensive coach from Green Bay would be talking about holding people to a Lombardi-level standard.

I don't think it's any secret that a star QB needs to be on the same page as everyone else.

I also don't think it's a secret that wasn't happening anymore in Green Bay.

Anyone who doesn't think Rodgers at least has a hand in this team's struggles apparently wasn't here for the end of the Favre/Sherman relationship. We've seen this all before. McCarthy came in and whipped #4 into shape (he doesn't get enough credit for this). His successor must do the same with #12.

Both of these guys are from pro football first.  O'Brien was a head coach for one year at Penn State, so does that make him a college guy?  Let me approach it this was, aside from Harbaugh, which college coaches would you like to see as the head coach of the Packers?  I see Kliff Kingsbury's name floated around, Lincoln Riley, and Brian Kelly are the names I see the most.  David Shaw will stay at Stanford (he has no desire up to this point to coach in the NFL), so I would not include him.  I hope they don't get an already fired/failed NFL head coach.  
Here is an article with 11 potentials to replace MM:  http://www.sportingnews.com/us/nfl/news/green-bay-packers-head-coaching-candidates-mike-mccarthy/7jnw6otomhzy1iok2jvrxupad
I am sure there are more potentials out there, but there are some interesting and not so interesting names on the list.  I am curious who people like from this list.

I would bring in Kubiak as HC and an up and coming OC like the guy from Dallas, Kris Richard.

Short term I think it could work, long term you are grooming your next HC.
