Winners of the NFL Offseason to Date

Posted by Javier Morales on 2/14/2017 4:39:50 AM

The hiring of Kyle Shanahan as coach of the San Francisco 49ers right after the Super Bowl concludes what turned out to be a fast NFL coach-hiring season.

Five of the six head-coaching jobs that were open became finalized between Jan. 9 and Jan. 12. The 49ers felt they had the luxury of waiting until after the Super Bowl to hire a coach, and they targeted the top two assistants available. New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels removed his name from consideration and decided to stay with the Patriots for another season.

The 49ers then set their sights on Shanahan, who coordinated the offense of the Atlanta Falcons that lost in thrilling fashion to McDaniels' Patriots in Super Bowl LI.

Shanahan's hire with the 49ers is one of those wait-and-see hires as far as gamble NFL online oddsmakers because his team still is at +20000 to win the Super Bowl next year.

His hire should pay dividends in the long run and San Francisco agrees with a six-year guaranteed contract. This article takes a look at some other winning moves made in the NFL since the regular season ended last month.

Los Angeles Rams ownership

The Sean McVay hire was the most interesting and could reap the most benefits for owner Stan Kroenke. McVay is 31 and bright, and he could help rekindle hope for the franchise. McVay did a great job putting together a coaching staff. He got Wade Phillips, Joe Barry and Bill Johnson on defense. Getting Greg Olson as a quarterbacks coach was a steal. Olson has worked with Derek Carr and Blake Bortles, among others, and should help develop No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff. This was a creative, interesting move.

Tom Coughlin, vice president, Jacksonville Jaguars

Jaguars' gamble NFL online odds to win the Super Bowl: +8000

Coughlin took being fired as coach of the New York Giants hard. Now he gets another shot with a team, overseeing football operations for a Jaguars franchise that has some young, talented players. Coughlin will have a great deal of power. He picks the 53-man roster, and the general manager and coach answer to him.

Vance Joseph, coach, Denver Broncos

Broncos' gamble NFL online odds to win the Super Bowl: +1600

Some assistants wait years and years to get a head-coaching job in the NFL. Joseph got a head-coaching job after being a defensive coordinator for one year, and the Miami Dolphins defensive numbers weren't great. Joseph knew Broncos general manager John Elway had his eyes on him for the past three years. The resignation of Gary Kubiak gave Joseph the chance to get a head-coaching job years ahead of expectations, and the team he inherits has a roster built to win immediately.
