Peter King's List of top coaching prospects

I think these sound like the top five college coaching candidates for NFL head coaching jobs, per chats with front office people in the last two weeks (in order): 1. Chip Kelly, Oregon 2. David Shaw, Stanford 3. Brian Kelly, Notre Dame 4. Kirk Ferentz, Iowa (even coming off the bad season at Iowa, he's well-respected in the NFL) 5. Doug Marrone, Syracuse. I didn't include Bill O'Brien of Penn State because (and call me naïve) I can't see him preaching love of, and loyalty to, Penn State, and then leaving after 12 months. But never say never in this business. 6. I think these sound like the top 10 NFL assistants who will get sniffs for head coaching jobs in the league next year (in order): 1. Mike McCoy, Denver offensive coordinator 2. Mike Zimmer, Cincinnati defensive coordinator 3. Vic Fangio, San Francisco defensive coordinator 4. Perry Fewell, Giants defensive coordinator 5. Dirk Koetter, Atlanta offensive coordinator 6. Dave Toub, Chicago special teams coordinator 7. Bruce Arians, Indianapolis interim head coach/offensive coordinator 8. Ray Horton, Arizona defensive coordinator 9. Kyle Shanahan, Washington offensive coordinator 10. Clyde Christensen, Indianapolis quarterbacks coach.
