The NFC Least along with it’s current title of the worst division in pro football has added another title – the Division with the most Coaching changes in the NFL 2020. In the NFL in 2020 there was a low of only 5 Head Coaching changes – the NFCE had 3 of the 5.
The new head guys league wide (in no particular order):
NY Giants: Joe Judge
Eight seasons as an assistant for the New England Patriots (special-teams assistant or coordinator from 2012 to 2019, and wide receivers coach in 2019); three seasons as an assistant at Alabama (special teams coach from 2009 to 2011)
Carolina Panthers: Matt Rhule
Three seasons as Baylor coach (19-20 record from 2017 to 2019); four seasons as Temple coach (28-23 from 2013 to 2016); one season as assistant offensive line coach for the New York Giants (2012)
Dallas Cowboys: Mike McCarthy
13 seasons as coach of the Packers (125-77-2 from 2006 to 2018), including a Super Bowl title in 2010; six seasons as offensive coordinator of the New Orleans Saints (2000-04) and San Francisco 49ers (2005)
Washington Redskins: Ron Rivera
Nine seasons as coach of the Panthers (76-63-1 from 2011 to 2019); six seasons as defensive coordinator of the San Diego Chargers (2008-10) and Chicago Bears (2004-06)
Cleveland Browns: TBD
Nobody here GAF about them anyway
Of the four new HC only 1 is a ‘minority’, Ron Rivera, which has our beloved Stephen A Smith apoplectic and ‘outraged’. Then again when is that rat bastard not apoplectic? Maybe this will get him to stoke out, one can only hope.
Of the four new HC only one comes from the College ranks, Matt Ruhle, Carolina (who appears to have snubbed the Giants).
Keeping this short, I’ll leave you w ESPN’s self-proclaimed ‘expert’ writers Jeremy Fowler and our own beloved Danny (Pineapple) Graziano’s grades and links to ESPN articles about each coach. On second thought fuck the links, nobody reads them anyway.
Judge: C+ B
Ruhle: B+ B
McCarthy: B+ A
