        No to Trestman without a HOF QB he is average at best, my vote is Lapo as HC/OC

          Not my choice but I wouldn't count out Mcadoo ending up as HC.
          Nothing like a whole off season to choke on cram sammiches!

            Dickenson


            best candidate on the current staff, and we will need to hire someone off the staff IMO

              Any reason to suspect anyone currently employed (like Lapo) is available? Would totally be up to the team they work for now.

                If we gotta keep the current staff, Dickenson is the best choice, Macadoo, I dunno. If we make him the head coach, does that guarantee he never touches the offence and we can hire a real OC? If so, that may work as well.

                  Lapo already turned down an offer to be HC this year.

                  MacAdoo. He knows the staff and they all know how to work together. Forcing a new HC to reinvent èverything and not be able to replace any existing staff, and they can't, seems rather silly and a recipe for disaster

                    Only way Dickenson works us if he commits to the off season, something that has been an issue in the past

                          Lapo didnt go to the Argos because he had to retain staff so you have to figure that he wouldnt want the Riders job considering his staff is already picked for him.

                          The other thing to consider is what HC jobs will be available next year. Montreal? Maybe he has to put up with the staff of the Riders this season and bring in his selections next season. Its pretty much a given that the Riders can give him a good bump in pay so maybe that would be the deciding factor for him.

                            With the new coaches cap, makes you wonder all the assistant coaches salaries in place already, the next head coach must either be also the D or O coordinator.

                            A couple candidates who I would not like but realistically could happen, call them convenience hires;

                            Mcadoo - already on staff and there is continuity and in theory brings the same culture as Jones.

                            Mike Benevetes - already been a HC, currently unemployed. Would also be the DC.


                            The guys guys I would like;

                            Lapo - former HC turf Mcadoo and Lapo assumes OC roles
                            Milanovich - same as above. He may soon become available.
                            Noel Thorpe - this may actually be the best option. Also the DC.
