If you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan that’s looking for pedigree, Daboll’s your guy.

If you aren’t paying close enough attention, Brian Daboll kind of looks like Joe Douglas, and that might be enough to give you a sick feeling in your stomach if you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan. If you can get past that, trust and believe the fact that you’re looking at someone who could become of the NFL’s superior coaches.

Daboll isn’t one of the sexier names that are floating around a few fan bases’ circles. he isn’t burning up any radars quite yet, but he’s just as qualified to be a head coach as anyone else on this list, if not more so.

Daboll sort of has the magic touch, and he’s been around success since he began his run as an NFL assistant way back in 2000 as a defensive assistant with the New England Patriots. He’s worked under two of the greatest coaching minds that football has ever seen, Bill Belichick and Nick Saban. He was the latter’s co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2017 where he tutored both Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa.

Having a resume like that isn’t going to be a turnoff for anyone. Seeing what he’s done with Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills offense should make you look at Doug Pederson and Press Taylor with a bit of exasperation. Allen is a legitimate MVP candidate, Wentz, not so much. Put a checkmark in the box next to Daboll’s name.
