It’s Thursday and we are still rolling out new preview content wrapping up the season. Today looks at the All-Coach team. As the name suggests, our team voted on the best coach at each position and listed them all on one team. Some spots were more difficult to identify than others, but we put together a good team nonetheless. Check it out below and if you missed out on anything from earlier in the week, catch up on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. If you want to know how we vote before the season, here you go.
For this list, we tried to keep it simple. A head coach, three coordinators, and then nine position assistants. Many defensive spots have multiple coaches on the DL, LB, or in the secondary, but we listed them all as one spot, plus a pass-rush coach in an attempt to simplify it. Also, coordinators are also able to be voted at the position they coach, although it doesn’t always show up in the final votes.
