Looks like Turner is back on the market and with Linehan looking for a Head Coaching job.... I wonder if Norv would want to come back?

Sportscenter just reported that Linehan might be in line for the Oakland HC job. A switch perhaps? I'd rather keep Linehan.

It will improve our run game but I am not to sure if I want to give him the job!

How is that backward? Do you remember how many yards Ricky ran for with Norv? And that was with no arm Fiddle sticks throwing it. His offense is very similar to Linehan's, IMO.

I fail to see how it improves our run game. He barely got LaMont Jordan over 1,000 and Miami actually rushed for more yards than Oakland as a whole. I agree, it wouldn't be wise for us to even consider this if Linehan moves on.

Saban knows what to do.... For some reason i have this faith in whatever he decides to do... must have something to do with the whole, rebuilt team in half a season

If we don't keep linehan it will be interisting as to what our offence will do. Do we get a little known offensive coordinator and have him run linehans offense, or do we get a big name guy and have him implement a totally new offense. If we get a guy like turner or another big namer they will implement there own system

Now that Norv Turner has been fired and it seems like Scott Linehan is gonna be offered a couple of head coaching jobs, maybe coach mr. bush, but now here is what i was thinking who would i rather have Norv or Scott i cant decide Scott did a really good job this year especially when he moved downstairs...but Norv is a great offensive coordinator idk i cant decide what do u guys think

Norv Turner is terrible. When he was here our offense did absolutely nothing.

Norv likes to run alot on 3 and long.. but other than that, he is pretty good.. I'd like Scott to stay though just to see what he can do with the team.

But he did GET LaMont (who isn't nearly as talented as R&R) over 1,000 yards in his first year as a starter. And Norv didn't have as much input into the offense as he did here because he had to worry about Oakland's piss poor Defense as well.

what you dont realize is that we are trying to leave the old Dolphins behind, bringing him back would be a horrible decision, IMO i think Saban should really have a man to man talk with linehan and show him that if he wants to wear one of those beautyful superbowl rings he should stay here

Ricky will have a monster year when he has like 35+ carries a game. Norv was no genious. All he did was hand the ball off to Ricky. Norv Turner should thank Ricky Williams for getting him the job in Oakland in the first place.

Nick will do what is best. I would much rather stay with Linehan than go back to Turner. When he was here, I personally felt that our offense was boring (with the exception of watching Ricky run over the league). Remember that there will be alot of other people interviewing for jobs besides Linehan.

i think NT was handcuffed bigtime by the hardcore star with the mustache, i wonder what he would do with saban as head coach, although i want SL to stay, i would be pissed if he is gone after just one year

Please no Norv, he ran Rickys D1ck in the dirt last time, Im sure Saban would not let that happen again ,but where has he been successful other than Dallas with the triplets and a great defense.

amazing how the tides turn after one mediocre year.

the fanfare Norv had in 2002 seemingly disappeared.

Norv Turner back in Miami. :sidelol:

Gary Stevens would be cheaper. :lol:

C'mon people.

I'd rather keep Linehan than pickup Norv, not that I think Norv is a bad OC, I just hate always changing systems. When Norv was here before I really believe Wanny had him hancuffed for the most part, (run, run, run, pass).
I'm not real worried, Saban will do whats best... Man, it feels good to have faith in a coach again.
