Only Tom Coughlin of the Giants, Mike Shanahan of the Redskins and Pete Carroll with the Seahawks did not move from a coordinator or assistant coach position into their current jobs.
Here’s one man’s opinion on the top 10 NFL assistants to keep your eyes on during this ’10 season and more importantly, once the GMs and owners pull out those ready lists.

"In the long run, this is going to be great. There are a lot of good things in River Falls, and there are a lot of great things here." Coach Todd Haley doesn’t intend to use the building for practice except in the event of thunderstorms. His plan is to practice outdoors even in extreme heat, a move that should benefit fans who come from Kansas City or elsewhere. Practices in the indoor building would be closed to fans.
