NFL head coach hiring season is over. Long live NFL head coach hiring season.
In this episode, Rivers and Danny discuss the statistical implications of head coaching, the ability of a head coach to coax more wins out of his team than normal, and figure out which questions they’d ask of NFL head coaches if they were running the interviews.

Below are the show notes:
New head coaches in the NFL:
— What statistical impact does head coaching have in the NFL? How much difference is there between the best head coach and the worst?
— Is there any way to really know which head coaches will stand out?
— What questions would we want answered by our new head coaches? Which schemes will they run, and which schemes would we hire them to run?
— How will this new coach fit in with the existing infrastructure? If we have an owner constantly looking over our shoulders, does this head coach have the ability to tune that out? How will the head coach and general manager interact? Who is going to the grocery store?
— How will the head coach and organization deal with the media? What is our master plan?
— Finally, what does our head coach think about fourth downs? How is he as a tactician? If he’s poor, is he willing to outsource this role?
