  • Dolphins Future Head Coach ?

    MIKE SHULA



    The more I think about ALL the coaching candidates I truly believe that Mike Shula is the best and more likely head coaching candidate that the Miami Dolphins should and could hire this offseason.

    If you sit back and think about his resume, his football life, it seems like destiny that Mike Shula be hired for the head coaching position. The Dolphins have not been a good team since Don Shula retired and it would make perfect sense that the Dolphins finally find a head coach that could turn this team around, that happens to be the son of the great Don Shula.

    Mike Shula is only 50 years old with close to 25 years of NFL EXPERIENCE, not to mention the experience he had growing up hanging around the Dolphins as a boy with his father being the head coach for half his life. As Bahamas pointed out in an earlier thread, Mike Shula is the key ingredient as to why Cam Newton and the Panthers are so prolific on offense this season, a perfect season so far, and if you have watched any of their games you would understand why. Shula knows the game and designs plays to his players strengths and that is something the Dolphins have needed for many years now. I think that even with Tannenbaum in Miami the Dolphins could still be able to sign a long contract with Coach Shula and bring him to Miami where he belongs.

    What are your thoughts on this subject?

    Wouldn't hurt my feelings, but I wonder how much of Carolina's success is Mike vs Ron or a little of both....

      I would credit Rivera for the Panthers great defense but nothing that happens on offense. Ron Rivera is an ex-linebacker and defensive coordinator of the Chargers. He is a defensive minded coach and leaves the offense up to other coaches. Many people around the league credit Newton's success to Shula. I mean, it's obvious Newton would be successful no matter what but Shula more than likely helped Newton grow quickly and caught up to speed, so to speak, to the NFL experience. Unlike the Dolphins, the Panthers have a qualified QB Coach in Mike Shula. Now, the Dolphins unqualified QB Coach is now their Offensive Coordinator. Yikes! 2016 can't come fast enough....................

        I know i've previously stated that i absolutely want the next HC of the Miami Dolphins to have some HC experience at the NFL level but as i stated on Bahama's thread, i think i'm warming to the idea of a Shula coming home...and he does have HC experience at Alabama, that's almost the same as the NFL, lol...

          yeah, i just meant that they field a team every year that almost looks like they could compete at the NFL level...Of course therein lies the problem,, a successful college coach finds it very difficult when they can no longer recruit every good player around to come play for them!

        You think if Mike Shula were offered the Dolphins job that his dad would warn him not to take it??!!!

          Depends on who's running the show, good question though, if he turned it down, one would have to believe that his dad and Dan both feel the top dogs are just that, dogs.....

        I tried to look up Mike Shula interview on Youtube and none exists. Can't find him talking anywhere. Just to gage his communication skills. Oh wells I guess I'm still on board.
        The deeper the roots, the higher the reach.

          I can't blame you, dood. The last coach before Campbell had ZERO communication skills, having to read notes in press conferences at times. Campbell just has issues with the Kings English, sort of a Texan Tony Sparano. Instead of "Dems and DOZ", Cambell's "Pouncey, HE, or "Our defense, THEY". It's the NewSpeak of today's Sports world. That, and the use ad nauseam of "at the end of the day" which is now overtaken "to tell the truth", "For what it's worth", "basically", "the Process" and the ever popular "what it all comes down TO."

        It would be nice to get a head coach that has NFL head coaching experience but in my opinion those coaches will ALL want to have control, something Tannenbaum won't give up. So, the next best thing would be to hire a head coach with other type of NFL experience. Aside from his 3 seasons at Alabama Mike Shula has had a job in the NFL since 1988. The experience he has gotten in Carolina will more than likely help him make the transition easier to becoming a head coach. Nothing is a slam dunk but this one seems to be a really good fit. Just my opinion..............

          Shula has moved up to my #3 HC choice. He's doing some great things in Carolina and I wouldn't be upset with this hire.

            Who are your top two coaches? Is Shannahan one of them?

              Yes. Mike Shanahan is my #1 and Sean Payton #2. I need to research how much power Payton actually has with the Aints because that team has been ran into the ground.

                I found this article about a bunch of coaches, including Sean Payton.

                "Sean Payton has total control of the Saints, though it is unclear when he was given that power, it likely came with his 2011 contract extension. The Saints have a GM, Mickey Loomis, but he primarily deals with contracts and managing the cap, an area where the Saints have really struggled. In that extension, Payton had a clause, which was not approved by the league, that if Loomis left or was fired from the Saints or was suspended, that he would be free to leave. The language on that clause was "cleaned up" when Payton signed another contract extension prior to his return from suspension for the 2013 season. Here too it is tough to say this is an arrangement that works. The Saints have also been a poor drafting team, most notably having traded up to take Mark Ingram and benching last year’s first round pick, Kenny Vaccaro. Loomis, who is also EVP of Basketball Operations for the New Orleans Pelicans, may be promoted (or is it "promoted" considering they missed the playoffs?) as soon as this week. Saints Director of Player Personnel Ryan Pace, who the Jets are interested in for their GM position, is his likely replacement."

                    Thanks Freak. I read some other articles as well as the " primarily deals with contracts and managing the cap," article and they makes it crystal clear that Payton has FULL control. Payton is Tannenbaum/Phailbin/Campbell and Loomis is Hickey/Aponte. Payton is a great coach but he and Loomis has ran that team into the ground with poor drafting, FA signings, and cap hell. If the Dolphins were to trade for Payton, Payton would NOT have full control and NOR should he. If no team can make a trade for Payton, Payton can use a clause in his contract to demand his release where he will probably go somewhere where he will have full control or stay in N.O. Jason Da Cantreportathing stated that the Aints will not trade Payton to a place he does not want to go.

                    So if Payton WANTS to coach Miami and stay OUT of most FO decisions and focus more on coaching and getting a good DC then he's still my #2. If not then he can go ..................

                      I guess it would be all about ego. He obviously failed at front office decisions so he should try just being a coach, he might like it better. I thought the Jimmy Graham deal was stupid and if I were a Saints fan I would probably be calling for his head, if he was the one who made that call, and it seems like he was. I don't want Tannenbaum back with the Dolphins but if someone like Payton was willing to sign with the Dolphins I could learn to deal with it. I wonder if Schwartz would ever consider being a DC again if the money was right? Payton and Schwartz would make a great one-two punch.

                        Schwartz is my #1 DC candidate with all my HC wish lists including Shula, Shanahan,Campbell and so on.
