Much-maligned offensive line coach Juan Castillo

was given his walking papers by Sean McDermott after a second season in which the offensive line took a lot of heat for sub-par performances. With the NFL coaching ranks often resembling a game of musical chairs , we look at possible candidates based on recent firings. Note; many of the names below are still under contract with their respective “last team” but all come from franchises that have fired head coaches or offensive coordinators. Ray Brown could be looking for work after the Arizona Cardinals fired their head coach. Brown has worked with offensive lines in the NFL since 2008, when he was given his first chance by the Buffalo Bills. Brown is a former lineman himself, playing in an impressive 20 seasons. At age 43, Brown was still starting for Washington. Brown coached for the Carolina Panthers from 2011 to 2017. This covers the entire time Sean McDermott was on the Panthers and is one of only two names directly tied to McDermott. Chris Morgan, offensive line/run game could be leaving Atlanta with the Falcons firing their offensive coordinator. Morgan comes with solid experience in the NFL, working with linemen since 2009 (Raiders, Washington, Seahawks and Falcons). Offensive line assistant Kyle Flood has two years with the Atlanta Falcons and various colleges for 22 more years. Cincinnati Bengals offensive quality control coach/line Robert Couch has three years with the Bengals and could be available with the firing of Marvin Lewis.Frank Pollack, the offensive line coach, also potentially out of Cincinnati, has more experience than Couch, with offensive line work going back to 2010. It could be argued he was highly successful with the Houston Texans, Oakland Raiders, and Dallas Cowboys. Marc Hutson would come via the Cleveland Browns as their o-line assistant. He spent three years in Cleveland where he most recently helped...Bob Wylie, offensive line coach. Wylie became famous this last season for non-football reasons Phillip Gaines Jersey , but has coached some solid offensive lines in the past. He has been coaching in some capacity since 1980. Coaches for the Browns will likely be available with Hue Jackson gone and Gregg Williams looking like an unlikely replacement. The Bills could attempt to find an up-and-comer like Marc Colombo. A former player, Colombo isn’t too far removed from suiting up. His coaching experience consists of this season for the Cowboys. He was added as an assistant o-line coach before the season and promoted to o-line coach mid-season. With the Cowboys in the market for a new offensive coordinator, assistant coaches could be up for grabs. Vance Joseph’s departure in Denver puts their coaches on the market potentially. Sean Kugler and Chris Strausser shared o-line duties. Kugler has more experience, coaching in the NFL for 12 years, including with Buffalo from 2007-09. Strausser began coaching in 2017.Jeff Davidson has a sweet first name and could be looking for a job with the Detroit Lions firing offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter. Davidson has 15 years coaching experience on the line and as an offensive coordinator. Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll worked with Cooter in 2012 for the Kansas City Chiefs, so there is at least a partial connection.Davidson’s assistant could also be in the mix. Hank Fraley played for eleven years and has been coaching since 2014. James Campen is a former Green Bay Packers lineman. He returned to Green Bay where he has coached for 15 years, holding the position of offensive line coach for eleven seasons, but if Mike McCarthy gets a gig, you would think he would end up with his former head coach. Jeff Blasko has been Campen’s assistant for the last two years. Offensive coaching turmoil in Jacksonville could lead to Pat Flaherty looking for a new team. Flaherty has coached offensive lines since 2004 (New York Giants, San Francisco 49ers, Jacksonville Jaguars).Another name in Jacksonville that could be had is former Bills TE coach Tony Sparano, Jr. He was on the 2011 Miami Dolphins staff with Brian Daboll as OC with the elder Tony Sparano.Miami’s decision to fire head coach Adam Gase has the rest of the coaches penciled in at best. The Bills could look to poach Jeremiah Washburn, who has coached offensive line since 2009. Washburn is assisted by Chris Kuper. He has been in his current position for two years. Kuper is another former player, wearing orange and blue with the Denver Broncos from 2006-13.Clancy Barone could leavethe Minnesota Vikings with the team “going in another direction” from their offensive coordinator. Barone has been coaching since 1987 and would be considered one of the more veteran hires. Also out of Minnesota, Andrew Janocko could be in play. Janocko has six years experience with offense and offensive lines. George Warhop of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers could be an enticing candidate. The team’s dismissal of Dirk Koetter could lead to Warhop hitting the market. Warhop has coached offensive line since 1996 Womens Marshall Newhouse Jersey , seeing time with the Rams, Cardinals, Cowboys, 49ers, Browns and Buccaneers.He coached on the same Bucs staff as Leslie Frazier.From the college ranks, Brent Key was Brian Daboll’s o-line coach with the Alabama Crimson Tide in 2017 and is an up-and-comer with experience before that at the University of Central Florida. Jack Bicknell, Jr. is the offensive line coach for Ole Miss, but in 2012, he was the Kansas City Chiefs’ offensive line coach under coordinator Brian Daboll. He was with the Pittsburgh Steelers and Dolphins before taking the college job.The New York Jets have fired head coach Todd Bowles leaving the assistant coaches up in the air for now. David Diaz-Infante is a former player and has three years as an offensive line assistant. Also from the Jets, offensive line coach and run game coordinator Rick Dennison is likely there for the taking. Dennison has been a coach since 1995 with several stints with the offensive line. Dennison actually was the offensive coordinator for the Bills for a year. I don’t remember why he left or who fired him, but maybe he’d like to return. He seems like a guy Sean McDermott might want to work with. Another lineman? Guard Quinton Spain is now a Buffalo Bill and we’re here with the All-22"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections NewsNotesOpinionAnalysisDiscussionPodcastNFL DraftSalary CapNFL Free AgencyAnalysisNotesAll-22 analysis: Buffalo Bills free-agent addition, guard Quinton SpainNew,70commentsAnother lineman? Guard Quinton Spain is now a Buffalo Bill and we’re here with the All-22EDTShareTweetShareShareAll-22 analysis: Buffalo Bills free-agent addition, guard Quinton SpainThe Buffalo Bills’ offensive line was nearly universally described by fans and pundits as anything but great— truly in dire need of upgrades following the 2018 season. Apparently the Bills agreed as they’ve acquired offensive linemen in free agency as if they were Pok茅mon. Former Tennessee Titans’ guard Quinton Spain becomes the latest addition to the team. How does he fit into the suddenly crowded and very competitive line? Let’s take a look. Play 1Quinton Spain isn’t a fast hand fighter which is one way to counter a quick rip or swim move. Spain does have a heck of a grip though. The compact rip in this play is ineffective because Spain’s hand simply refuses to come off the jersey. Spain also braces against the initial impact pretty well. Play 2This clip isn’t to say that Spain routinely mauls someone. Rather, it’s to show that he’s not likely to quit or even slow down on a play. The timing on the initial block is a little off , and a little move from linebacker Zach Cunningham creates a miss. Turning pretty well on the move, Spain finds Cunningham and, well you saw it. Play 3This is a pretty representative pass block for Spain. Would you love it more if he shoved his man way to the left? Sure. But the way Spain steers him back leaves a really nice zone to step into. Although Quinton Spain anchors pretty well, when blocking on the move he shines when he can direct where the movement goes rather than trying to stop it. Play 4Quinton Spain was asked to block on the move quite a bit and overall there’s a fair amount to like. The first block is held just long enough to protect the quarterback. As essentially a timing play for lineman, the release and execution of the second block is also good. Spain is responsible for getting way ahead of the play. Because the ball heads back to the right he’s outmaneuvered by the smaller player on defense. (No shame there.) Had the play developed behind Spain, though, he likely makes the third block. Play 5For Spain there’s a lot of similar jobs to do despite this being a running play. He helps and holds the first block long enough to let his teammate earn a decisive victory then goes on the move again. It’s not quite single-handed, but Spain is a major reason this run works as well as it does. Play 6Let’s see how Spain does against some familiar faces. Kyle Williams and Jerry Hughes are up to shenanigans. Williams and Hughes swap at the last second to try to catch the Titans off guard. Spain is patient to engage with Kyle Williams and doesn’t leave his spot to meet Williams. As a result, Spain is ready for Hughes. One hand on Hughes’s chest is enough to slow him down long enough to get the pass off. Play 7For the first few steps Quinton Spain is going toe-to-toe with Star Lotulelei. It appears Lotulelei gains an edge as he digs deep and shoves Spain off. Spain uses the slight loss of forward momentum of Lotulelei and slips in front, creating an effective block. Play 8Spain isn’t flawless by any means and can run into an occasional hiccup usually related to his feet or balance. On this exact play Jordan Phillips moves quickly around Spain and further away than expected. In an attempt to slow Phillips down, Spain leans too far over and falls. It’s not an all-the-time thing, but if Spain is running into trouble it’s probably at the hands of a faster player or unexpected angle. Play 9This play is here for a couple reasons. I wanted one more running play and Spain shows off admirably. Leading the way for a lot of this push, it’s a good chunk of ground covered by the Titans. The other reason this play is selected is because it came later in the 2018 season. Spain suffered injuries to his shoulder and ankle during the year. This game later in the season showed a player who looked well healed. SummaryIt’s getting difficult to project starters for the offensive line due to the volume of signings and versatility of many of the players. Quinton Spain is by no means a flashy signing but represents a good play by the Bills. At the very least, Spain should compete for a starting role and it wouldn’t be a shock to see him earn it. Spain has a good variety of tools and could fit in with Brian Daboll’s stated vision of mixing and matching schemes to take advantage of opponents’ weaknesses.
