ESPN: Strong Will Be Targeted For NFL Jobs

Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

Well, if you were wondering whether or not your Cardinal Sunday was going to be better than the previous two weekend days (or Thursday), here's an early indication that it's not:

The NFL's recently formed advisory panel, which helps to identify potential minority coaching candidates, already is advocating the candidacy of Louisville's Charlie Strong and Stanford's David Shaw, league sources told ESPN.

It will be an upset if Strong is not a leading candidate for various NFL head coaching openings this winter.

There already is speculation swirling in select league circles that Strong and Louisville quarterbackTeddy Bridgewater, who is projected to be one of the top picks in next year's draft, could wind up reuniting in the NFL next season.

If Strong and Bridgewater end up on with same team in the NFL, it would be similar to the current situations in Indianapolis, where the Colts hired Pep Hamilton to serve as Andrew Luck's offensive coordinator, and Miami, where Mike Sherman was hired as an offensive coordinator for Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

There are a lot of reasons why I think this won't come about, but if Adam Schefter's reporting it, it's still cause for at least some concern.
