McNair says Texans looking for experienced head coach

6 posts in this topic

Hmmmmm...I saw some names listed (i.e. Smith, Gruden, etc.). But so far no Brian Billick. I wonder if this is his ticket back into the NFL.

Unfortunately, I think Billick has created the notion in owners' minds that he's to head coaching what Mickey Rourke is to acting- a royal pain in the *** that no one wants to work with.  But Rourke did get his chance with "The Wrestler" so maybe Billick will get another opportunity.  I just don't see it happening any time soon.  Also, maybe he doesn't want to coach at this point in his life.

I read/heard something that Billick said he wanted to get back to coaching, but owners didn't want anyone as old as he is or as expensive as he is. Of course, Andy Reid had a job the next day, is almost as old as Billick (55 vs 59), and I'm sure Reid did not come cheap. So I basically take everything Billick says with a grain of thought.

(I also get a kick out of all the people who swore that Billick would have a job "THE NEXT DAY", and now it's 6 years later and he still hasn't even gotten a serious interview.)

 

(That's your cue, Bud. LOL)

 

(Bud was always amused as well about all the Billick apologists.)

It is a damn strange thing.  The guy always won and he has a ring.  What other superbowl winning coach was shut out at such an early age?

Is there something we don't know?

Yeah, I think the whole age thing is pretty silly.  Billick's still a relatively young man.  My guess is he's just not actively pursuing any coaching job right now because the TV color job is feeding his insatiable ego and there hasn't been any interest from owners.  Probably a combination of both.

I'd like to see Brian get another chance but the money he makes from TV, the easier work hours etc. why should he coach again. John Madden coached 10 years and never went back and did well for himself. "Talking heads" in sports and politics are over paid and over listened to.
