    One odd note about former Denver assistant coaches would be the new relationship Rick Dennison and Alex Gibbs would have… In Denver, didn't Rick work for Alex before he 'retired'? Now, if Rick lands the Houston OC job, he'll technically be over Gibbs. Not a big deal, just interesting.

    Good point. I don't recall the history of Gibbs' exit from Denver, but that would be interesting.

    Moot point now…

    Alex Gibbs to join Carroll – Washington Post

    “And if there was any thought that Shanahan might be bringing long-time assistant Alex Gibbs with him to Washington, you can forget about it. ESPN is reporting that Gibbs, most recently the assistant head coach of offense in Houston, will be joining Pete Carroll's staff in Seattle. Gibbs is considered to be the guru behind the zone-blocking scheme that has given Shanahan so much success over the years.”

    Wow… that is a surprise. Never even crossed my mind he would consider the college ranks.

    I wish we could have coaxed him into coming back here. He is a GREAT coach.
