The NFL’s Career Development Advisory panel has crafted its preliminary list of coaching and G.M. candidates for the coming hiring cycle. The coaching list includes a college coach who has shown no inclination (yet) to leave his current job. The G.M. list includes a current NFL General Manager.

Dolphins G.M. Chris Grier is one of the candidates. He’s included because he currently doesn’t control the 53-man roster in Miami; executive V.P. of football operations Mike Tannenbaum does.

Also on the list are Chiefs director of football operations Chris Ballard, Cowboys assistant director of player personnel Will McClay, Raiders director of player personnel Joey Clinkscales, Ravens assistant G.M. Eric DeCosta, Giants director of football operations Martin Mayhew, and Vikings assistant G.M. George Paton.

The final list will be provided to teams on December 10.

  1. Dallas fans nationwide read this post and universally had the same reaction: “heck no, you’re not taking Will McClay”.

    McClay is the hidden gem who has been the final piece of what has become Dallas’s successful roster-building team. Any team able to convince him to leave Dallas would be getting a terrific talent.

  2. This list should include an up and coming star in the NFL, Trey Brown. He got his foundation and his start in New England under Bill Belichick. He left to become the Director of College Scouting for the Eagles. When Chip Kelly was fired, he basically coordinated the draft until Howie came back in the fold. That draft found their franchise QB Carson Wentz, a rookie starting cornerback in the 7th round, and a Right tackle who is currently starting as a rookie. Smart young evaluator who learned the ropes from Bill Belichick.
