    Zimmer has done some serious work with untouchables like Vontaze Burfict and Adam Jones, plus he has nurtured Geno Atkins from a 4th round draft pick to a two time Pro Bowler. Combined with his knowledge of the division, the hit Cincitucky would take by losing him and the fact that he would continue with the 43 makes him my leading candidate.

    I like Zimmer, I've liked him since I watched the Cincinnati Hard Knocks a few years back because of his personality and because as already pointed out he's had really good defenses with talent and respectable ones without talent all throughout his career.

    I like Zimmer and Rob Ryan for our next coach, though not if Ryan wants to switch to a 3-4, then I'd have to pass. Our defense has too much potential in the 4-3 to rebuild it into a 3-4. But can you imagine his press conferences?

    Trestman doesn't sound bad either.

    Mike Zimmer on Bobby Petrino: "He's a gutless bastard"

    Posted by NBC Sports on October 20, 2010, 4:03 PM EST
    Let’s just say Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer doesn’t look back fondly on his days coaching under Bobby Petrino in Atlanta.

    “He’s a gutless bastard. Quote that. I
    don’t give a s—,” Zimmer said Wednesday, according to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer.

    When Zimmer was told that responsible news organization may not be able to use “bastard,” Zimmer responded:

    “How about this, gutless MF. You can use that.” (Awesome. Much appreciated.)

    Petrino famously didn’t tell any of his assistants that he was leaving Atlanta for the head coaching job at Arkansas. On Sunday, Zimmer’s Bengals face a Falcons team that has been almost completely remade since 2007, especially on defense.

    Meanwhile, the “gutless bastard” has Arkansas back in the top 25 in college football.

    “Woo Pig Sooie!“

    UPDATE: More from Zimmer, via Reedy: “[Petrino] is a coward. Put that in quotes. He ruined a bunch of people’s
    lives, a bunch of people’s families, kids, because he didn’t have enough
    nuts to stay there and finish the job. That’s the truth.”

    Rising out of the ashes

    Huge fan of Chud when he was here, got outed when DA imploded.

    He's definitely an innovator. He's done a good job with Cam, despite Cam's child-like behavior.

    I think we should just post tweets about people the Browns are *not* interviewing. It would be simpler for everyone.

    Zimmer is interesting. Seems like a good fit and hits on that old Art of War mentality of strengthening yourself at the same as weakiening your opponent. I like it.
