Perry Fewell Not On Candidate List For Any Head-Coaching Jobs

New, comments

I wrote on Monday about Perry Fewell's journey this season from genius destined to be a head coach somewhere, to bum New York Giants fans wanted run out of town, and back to genius again.

Well, here is something I found interesting today. The firing of Hue Jackson by the Oakland Raiders makes six teams around the league hiring new coaches. Fewell is not a candidate for any of those jobs, if the 2012 Coaching Carousel tracker put together by SI.com is accurate.

Fewell, you recall, was in the mix for four vacancies last off-season.

This off-season, he does not appear to be in demand. Kansas City has already hired Romeo Crennel, and Fewell does not appear on SI's list for any of the five openings that remain.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers might be leaning toward Marty Schottenheimer, the St. Louis Rams and Miami Dolphins are pining for Jeff Fisher, the Jacksonville Jaguars appear to want an offensive coach and early word is Winston Moss is the likely choice in Oakland.

Interesting what a difference a year makes.
