I hope not. He has done well getting GA on track defensively. Als he was with Dallas before and going to the Seagulls would be a sad day.
can we just sign brian dawkins back, i miss him taylor and vincent
OK, so the only D Coordinator positions that are open (Browns, Rams, Jaguars, Eagles, and Bears) all run 4-3 defenses. But Chip Kelly wants to run an aggressive 3-4. All roads could be open to bring Ray Horton to Philly. I think this is actually going to happen....and quite soon. It would be a GREAT hire!
Will the Eagles bring Ray Horton in from the Arizona Cardinals to run their defense?
The tide fans already making excuses about how the DC job at Bama is better than any NFL DC job. Sounds like Kirby Smart is in play after all.
Just a note, the Browns want to run a hybrid system. I am not saying Horton goes there, but the plan is to show looks of both.
I would absolutely love Kirby Smart. Anyone who has studied under Saban whether in the NFL or college is ok in my book. I did a quick scan of the Bama 24/7 board and there is a VIP thread on Smart with a bunch of upvotes so my inclination is to assume there is some chatter that he may just be angling for more cash (a novel concept for the Eagles...).
I guess we'll see. I love Horton as well. I don't care that much about a 3-4 switch. If you are ever going to do it now is the perfect time.
Why would you ever get rid of Coach Jauron??
Only issue with Horton is you'd be hiring a new D coordinator next year as he'll be a HC candidate again next season. With a guy like Granthan or possibly Smart I think you could keep for a couple years you just never know but Horton will definitely be in the HC mix next year.

Don't ask me, I guess its why they are the Browns. My buddy is a huge brown fan and he said about how the players love Jauron. However, the same players also defended Shurmer.
I think that Shurmer was ready to turn that thing around. He inherited crap and made them competitive (despite their record). If he had a couple more years, I think they would be a playoff team.
I have to agree, him, Jauron and Heckett had me worried. I thought they were going to make the AFC North even more difficult for the Steelers.
I think Haslam like a lot of new owners, assume that money will get them "their guy" and it just doesn't happen that way.
Ray Horton and Todd Bowles will both find new homes as defensive coordinators, according to league sources.
EWWWWW. Now he is coaching for the enemy. Damn you Horton. LeBeau taught him everything he knows, so I hope he held some stuff back. Browns? Ew.
WE ARE! And we will always be...
