GRIDIRON ALUMNI FOOTBALL QUESTION OF THE WEEK: WHICH NFL ANALYST WOULD BE THE BEST HEAD COACH RIGHT NOW
It seems to be the common theme in the NFL these days: walk away from coaching or playing and go straight to the broadcasting booth. Many coaches and even players are taking that route, as the television screen on Sunday’s – and throughout the week – is filled with some form of NFL experience – whether they wore a headset or wore a helmet.
But if you’re an NFL team right now, which analyst could come in and fill a coaching void right now?
The obvious choices could be proven veteran coaches like John Gruden or Tony Dungy, who hold two of the more prestigious NFL broadcasting gigs in Monday Night Football and Sunday Night Football, respectively.
But what about guys like an Emmitt Smith, or a Troy Aikman, or even a Kurt Warner? Could those former players come in and make a difference as a coach? Obviously they had success as a player, so who’s to say they couldn’t carry that success over to the coaching realm?
What do you think? Which current NFL analyst would make the best head coach right now?
