    Maybe not, but it makes the decision harder. Especially when you'd be swapping out a HC with good results for one with bad results.

    I think that the skill set for position coaches (and even co-ordinators) aren't necessarily transferable to HCs.

    And while there's a non-zero chance that he's the next BB, I wouldn't stake the rest of Ben's career on it.

    And here is what Florio had to say about the Cincy head coaching vacancy:


    How about co-head coaches in Cincinnati?

    Posted by Mike Florio on January 9, 2019, 2:35 PM EST

    It’s believed in league circles that the next coach of the Bengals will be Hue Jackson (with Vance Joseph as defensive coordinator) or Vance Joseph (with Hue Jackson as offensive coordinator). So why not really shake things up and do something completely different?

    At one point, Michael Scott and Jim Halpert were co-managers of Dunder Mifflin, Scranton branch. Maybe that’s the right answer for the perpetually wrongly-directed Bengals, as crazy as it may sound. (And, yes, it sounds crazy.)

    But it’s not unprecedented. In 1953, the Packers had co-head coaches. (Sure, it lasted only for the last two games of the season.) Ten years before that, the merged Steelers and Eagles franchise (the Steagles) employed both Walt Kiesling and Greasy Neale as co-head coaches.

    Why not make Jackson the head coach/offense and Joseph the head coach/defense? Give one guy responsibility for each side of the ball, let the special-teams coordinator report to both of them, and see what happens?

    Jackson would call the offensive plays, and Joseph would support Jackson with broader topics like clock management. Joseph would call the defensive plays, and Jackson would support Joseph.

    I’m mostly joking, but a little serious. If neither guy is able to thrive in the job alone, why not split the job in two? With both guys operating under the terms of a buyout for at least the next season, the Bengals possibly get them to do it for the total cost of one total head coach.

    Again, it’s crazy. It’s over the top. It’s one the wrong side of the fine line that separates outside the box from f–kin’ nutty.

    But ask yourself this. A week ago, which possibility would have sounded more ridiculous, entrusting an NFL franchise to two men with NFL head-coaching experience (and the contacts to fill out a staff) or hiring as an NFL head-coach a guy who has no NFL coaching experience, who has precious few NFL coaching contacts, who went 35-40 at Texas Tech, who got fired from that job in November, and who quickly took a job as offensive coordinator at USC in December?

    Maybe worth noting that Munchak s best year as HC was 9 wins.

    We had 9 wins and a tie this year and the pitchforks are out.

    It's different because he didn't have Ben, but we had as many wins in the last 2 years as he did in 3 years as an HC (plus we had a tie)
