With 4 (actually 5 – if you consider that the Raiders HC job is also open as Tony Sparano was just holding an interims position until the end of the Raiders’ season) NFL HC positions open (Jets, Bears, Falcons, 49ers, Raiders) the speculations begin who’ll fill out what position.
Here are some hot candidates, and one that’s gotten cold faster than everybody expected: Jim Harbaugh will return to the college ranks (Michigan) he announced just hours after the expected mutually parting with the 49ers was annouced:

1. Seahawks Defensive Coordinator Dan Quinn

2. Broncos Offensive Coordinator Adam Gase

3. Patriots Offensive Coordinator Josh McDaniels

4. Browns Offensive Coordinator Kyle Shanahan

5. Cardinals Defensive Coordinator Todd Bowles

6. 49ers Defensive Line Coach Jim Tomsula

7. UCLA head caoch Jim Mora

Well there’ll be quite some speculations until everything’s set and done… Stay tuned…
