LB Coach Matt Eberflus

Current Indianapolis Colts Defensive Coordinator and former Dallas Cowboys Linebackers coach Matt Eberflus would be my choice to become the next hottest name to become an NFL head coach.

If you recall, Eberflus was the  Cowboys linebackers coach and last coached the Dallas Cowboys when Leighton Vander Esch was a rookie. That year everyone thought that the Dallas Cowboys were set at linebacker for the next few years.

Now the Dallas Cowboys could possibly spend a high first or second-round pick on an off-the-ball linebacker and the Indianapolis Colts are currently 6th in total defense. I’m sure the casual fan can only name two defenders on the Colt’s current defense.

That should tell you all you need to know about this highly qualified coach who flew under the radar in his time with the Cowboys. Eberflus was reportedly offered the Dallas Cowboys Defensive coordinator position but declined because of the respect he had for then defensive head man Rod Marinelli.

If the Dallas Cowboys have a coaching vacancy this offseason, the first person I would interview is Eberflus as he has shown the ability to not only coach under duress but succeed as well. Eberflus running the defense and team while Kellen Moore continues his trajectory with Dak Prescott sounds like a recipe for success.
