    Young kid; ties to Colorado as Donkeys' former OC; now working as OC (I believe) at USC with Pete Carroll.....seems like a potential fit.

    only 1 year of experience at USC too risky.

    He is not the OC there either. He's the QB coach and he has an honorary title of assistant HC. So did Helfrich.... etc.

    Thanks for the clarification on OC duties.

    Bates has been claimed to be a "boy wonder" and has experience as OC in NFL. I don't want to compare him to Josh McDaniels, but I can definitely see some similarities there.

    I'll take him as OC/QB, but too risky as HC with only position experience. And it will take a college HC offer or an NFL one to get him to leave USC. What's the hurry to shop around when your job is to hang with 4 and 5 star quarterbacks all day?

    I posted this a couple of days ago, Shannahan doesn't hire idiots for offensive assistants and Carrol can get pretty much whoever he wants.

    Bates reportedly enjoyed living in Colorado and I think has the personality to work well as a closer on recruits and with the money boosters.

    Some risk< High reward candidate

    Bates was basically the OC here last year... #2 overall offense in the NFL.

    I really like Venables, Strong, or Valdez's guy. Heater? Is that his name?

    For me, scoring is the stat to look at and that means he was #16 last year. Kinda makes it worse when you can't get the job done when it counts. But I think that is more of a reflection on Cutler's style of play than Bates' playcalling/leadership.

    At this point, I'd take Norman Bates.
