Two AFC teams filled their head coaching positions, and one poached a top assistant from the NFC West.

of Houston TexasHaving fired three head coaches in as many seasons, he may finally have a long-term answer. Former Texas linebacker Demeco Ryan has resigned San Francisco 49ers Defensive coordinator to return to Houston as head coach. Ryans has agreed a six-year deal and will be tasked with reviving a team that has won just eight games over the past two seasons.

From 2006-2011, Ryans was a star player on Houston’s defense, including two. Pro Bowl Selections and All-Pro in 2007. After finishing his career Philadelphia EaglesRyan joined the 49ers as an assistant coach in 2017 and became the linebackers coach in 2018. When Robert Saleh was arrested. New York Jets Work, Ryans took over the DC role and the 49ers defense finished 7th in DVOA in 2021. This was a minor hire for the head coaching position, so San Francisco gets a 2025 third-round pick.

Meanwhile in AFC West, Ex New Orleans Saints Coach Sean Payton is moving to Colorado to coach Russell Wilson. Denver Broncos. Even after Peyton left the team, the Broncos gave up their 2023 first-round pick because Peyton’s contract rights belonged to New Orleans. Dolphins Bradley Chubb deal) and next year’s second-round pick and a 2024 third-round pick in addition to Peyton.

I don’t need to tell you the story of Peyton because you already know that he won Super Bowl And Celebrity lost double-digit popularity at 7-9 Seahawks. He is the best coach in Saints history and a brilliant offensive mind. Denver in 2010 It was an unmitigated risk in 2022, giving the Seahawks the 5th overall pick, and the unsolicited focus on Sean Payton is fixing Russell Wilson after the worst year of his career. We get something close to either the old Russell or the old Russell Wilson.

So for those of you who want to see a world where Wilson is not a proven offensive mind, but a Pete Carroll or a genius like Nathaniel Hackett, this is your time. The Seahawks can’t squeeze any more picks out of the Broncos even if they try, so our focus on Denver from this point on is not tied to Seattle’s draft picks. Hopefully Wilson can change things because I don’t want it to end like the end of his career.

of Arizona Cardinals And Indianapolis Colls They are now the only team without a new head coach.
