    I believe New England also offered him a head coaching gig later, which he accepted, but then changed his mind shortly thereafter.


    Trade #22 (780 points) to JAX for #36 + #67 (795 points)

    2.4 TE Maxx Williams, Minnesota 6'4" 250 lbs.
    2.24 OLB Nate Orchard, Utah 6'3" 252 lbs.
    3.3 OG Laken Tomlinson, Duke 6'4" 323 lbs.
    3.23 SS Jaquiski Tartt, Samford 6'1" 220 lbs.
    4.22 CB Ronald Darby, Florida State 5'11" 195 lbs.
    5.24 FS Kurtis Drummond, Michigan State 6'1" 205 lbs.
    6.23 CB Cam Thomas, Western Kentucky 6'0" 195 lbs.
    7.22 RB Malcolm Brown, Texas 6'0" 223 lbs.

    Hmmm...the Johnny "Blood" McNally era was too long ago...not late 60's. I'll take a shot in the dark and say Walt Keisling.

    (now I'm going to check on Google as soon as I submit this)...

    Drat! Missed it!!! Of course, I was born in 1975, so what do I know. Interesting that Kiesling was the coach on 3 separate occassions, though (39-40, 41-44, and 54-56). Bert Bell's Steelers went 0-2 in 1941, then they switched to Aldo Donelli who went 0-5 in 1941, before handing the reigns back to Kiesling again late in the 1941 season...3 coaches in 1 year! I don't think even George Steinbrenner ever did that!
