    I would think Nolan is looking for a HC job. It seemed like Denver was a way station for him on that path.

    McDaniels, Pees could be reuniting - Amazing

    Are you kidding me? Is there a coach we have they WON'T take?

    The Patriots should interview Mike Nolan for their defensive coordinator opening.



    Broncos announced the resignation of defensive coordinator Mike Nolan. Nolan and head coach Josh McDaniels agreed to "mutually part ways," presumably over issues of control. Nolan was also surprisingly not pursued for any head jobs after coaching up a defense laden with mediocre talent. Nolan proved he still has a golden touch as a coordinator, transforming the NFL's No. 29 overall defense in 2008 into the seventh-best unit with just one season on the job. Nolan's loss is a crushing blow to Denver on paper. The Dolphins, Bears, and perhaps the Patriots would be smart to begin hot pursuit.--Rotoworld

    This should be retitled to include the phrase "pure speculation".

    That would be pretty cool.

    Old School (Crennel and Weis) vs New School (Pees and McDaniels) twice a year.

    Bad news for TBC.

    And the way Nolan handled the Alex Smith situation, I don't want any part of him.

    Which in the world of coaching means....

    Al Groh is still available for the right price (sorry, my opinion of most coaches sometimes isn't high).

    What it really means is he wasn't getting a lot of calls from the NFL.

    Get him on the phone, Bill. Nolan had a master's touch with that defense this season. Put some talent in the LB corps and DL on this defense and the guy can do wonders with us.

    We're day dreaming again. The Patriots do not pay their coordinators

    enough to get a good one.

    NFWIH Billick and Belichick coexist under one roof. No way.

    However, BB and Ozzie Newsome are chummy. Newsome hired Nolan in BAL. McD hired Nolan based on a recommendation by BB.

    There are some LinkedIns here......

    All I know is that the AFCE is getting VERY competitive and we can ride on the fact that the division has holes much longer.

    Check out what Schefter just tweeted:

    Sounds like Nolan to Miami is a done deal.

    This team should start hiring other team's coaches instead of constantly losing their own. Nolan could be a fresh approach to a lifeless D.

    According to Florio, his source says Nolan was let go because teams figured out his defense. If you look at Denver's defense, it was amazing the first six weeks and then fell apart.

    I think I would pass on Nolan.

    Did you watch the Broncos' defense the second half of the season? Yes, their defense was amazing the first six games, but it sucked most of the last 10 games.

    Here is the points the Broncos gave up in the last 10 gamers:

    Baltimore - 30
    Pittsburgh - 28
    Washington - 27
    San Deigo - 32
    Giants - 6
    KC - 13
    Indy - 28
    Oakland - 20
    Philly - 30
    KC -44 (and they gave 259 yards on the ground to Jamal Charles)

    To be fair, though, the Broncos had the same problems the Chiefs did. Without a quality player on the nose, the 3-4 is just begging to be run against.
