45 ESPN Analysts Rank Head Coaching Candidates

We were allowed to choose any five people who were not currently NFL head coaches. Who do we think are the best candidates for jobs? I chose Jim Harbaugh, David Shaw, Dave Toub, Jerry Rosburg, and Jim Schwartz. The consensus top five included Harbaugh, Shaw, Josh McDaniels, Nick Saban, and Jon Gruden. There are some interesting picks lower down including Ed Reed, Kevin Kelley, and Byron Leftwich. Good debate material! It's Insider subscription required.
