Just wondered how long OC's usually stick with the same team. 5 years seems like a long time in today's NFL when I think about it.

Not sure, but I would think the better OCs after a few good years might have a chance to leave and become a head coach. Same probably goes for DCs.

I think it depends on the organization...

For many NFL teams, it isn't like the HC and/or GM have a ton of job security...where does that leave assistant coaches?

I think it also has to do with the age of the coordinator...Tom Moore was with the Colts for 12 seasons and never in his long career was he a head coach...

12 years? Was that during Peyton's tenure? If so, he had an easy job.

Just seems like most teams shed an OC regardless of promotion or firing after 3 or 4 years.

He wasn't exactly lighting up scoreboards as our O.C. from 83-89...although he did do a good job as our WR coach from 77-82, since those are the years when the passing game truly opened up (for the first two Super Bowls, we were undoubtedly a running team, and morphed into a dangerous passing team for the second two Super Bowls).

It was during the Manning years...regardless of how easy you think his job was, he still held it for 12 years and had success...

Kevin Gilbride has been the OC for the Giants for a long time as well...

Marty Mornhingweg (sp?) has been the OC in Philly for a long time...

Organizations with stability keep coordinators longer...

I think I would be a great WR coach if was coaching players in their prime like Lynn Swann and John Stallworth.

For the Steelers and Arians, too long.
