Possible replacements for Nick Sirianni: Brian Daboll

Current status: Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator

Yep, time heals all wounds, and even though he wasn’t interested last time, per Rob Maaddi of the Associated Press, a make-up date or two might woo Brian Daboll away from the Buffalo Bills. Fingers are crossed this way.

Daboll popped up on quite a few radars last season when teams began looking for head coaches, but when the dust cleared and the smoke settled, he decided that he was more than happy to remain in his current role.

As you know, he’s been Buffalo’s offensive coordinator since 2018. This after stints with the Cleveland Browns, Miami Dolphins, Kansas City Chiefs, and New England Patriots that spanned from 2009 to 2016 and a run in 2017 with the Alabama Crimson Tide, one in which he helped them to another National Championship. Some of you may remember Eagles rookie wide receiver DeVonta Smith running under the game-winning touchdown pass in overtime to put the Georgia Bulldogs away.

Just in case you haven’t noticed, this isn’t the only time that one of the more sought-after potential head coaches turned Philadelphia’s head-coaching job down. Eagles vice president/general manager Howie Roseman gave Brandon Staley a sick feeling in his stomach too.

For this one to happen, Howie has probably got to go, but if he’s gone and Philly can at least get Daboll in for an interview, you never know. Don’t give up just yet.
