1.Lovie Smith: Smith brings not only a Super Bowl appearance and 81 wins as a head coach, but he commands respect and admiration, especially from players. He's defensive minded which bodes well for a Redskins team that has been atrocious on defense since Shanny and Has took over. Lovie never coached a quarterback with as much potential and talent as RG3 and with the right Offensive Coordinator ("OC")(Chad Morris from Clemson or Philip Montgomery from Baylor), Lovie could be the right choice to return the Redskins to NFC East supremacy.
2.Ken Whisenhunt: Whisenhunt is a great choice for the Redskins head coaching job. Whisenhunt played tight end in the NFL for 7 years, including for the Redskins during the 1989-1990 season. As offensive coordinator with the Steelers, he coached Ben Roethlisberger for his first three seasons and helped coach the Steelers to win Super Bowl XL. His year spent with the Steelers also mean that he knows the value of a good defense. As head coach of the Cardinals, Whisenhunt led the team to a NFL Championship and Super Bowl appearance. He is now OC in San Diego and Philip Rivers is having one of his best statistical years. His experience coaching tight ends such as Mark Bruener and Health Miller will greatly help Jordan Reed.
3. Mike Zimmer: Hard-nosed, tough-as-nails Bengals defensive coordinator would bring intensity and attitude to the Redskins. He has turned the Bengals defense into one of the best in the NFL. He also served as defensive coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys and Atlanta Falcons.
4.Perry Fewell : Current Giant's defensive coordinator is a veteran coordinator that has coached under Dick Juaron, Lovie Smith, and Tom Coughlin. Fewell won a Super Bowl ring as Giants D-Coordinator in Super Bowl XLVI. He knows the NFC East well and his defensive schemes are praised around the league. His chance as a head coach is soon.
5. Art Briles: Despite the success he shared with RG3 at Baylor, Briles has only been a head coach since 2003. Taking the helm of a NFL team is probably too premature at this point but depending on whom the Redskins tab as head coach, Briles would be a great offensive coordinator for the team.
