He was hired as the new head coach of the Baltimore Ravens.

Do you know anything about this guy? 

Since he will be going to a division rival, I would like to know about this guy.

Do you think he has the make-up to become a good NFL head coach?

Positives or negatives?

He has been coaching here as an Assistant for ten years. Nine years under Reid so that's the mentor.

I would expect some similar traits as Reid. Won't throw the players under the bus. More focus on hard work. I fully expect the Ravens to make a bid for a name QB as that has been Reid's bread and butter.

Everyone here in Philly is "happy for him" but I did see the hiring as a surprise. Harbaugh interviewed for the UCLA head coaching job (and didn't get it) and hasn't been an offensive or defensive coordinator either. I'm surprised that Marty Schottenheimer is still unemployed.

Why did Jim Johnson not get interviewed?  They are talking about Spagnaulo as a candidate now.  The guy only had one year as a coordinator and it really seems that they are jumping the gun to get new blood as coaches.
Jason Garrett has not been a head coach at any level, right?  He's another one that would benefit from additional experience.

Eric Mangini has one fluke season playing an incredibly easy schedule, and now NFL teams want to basically hire people straight out of the womb.

I heard via Fox Sports is that Harbaugh got the nod over Schottenheimerand others because he was younger. The Ravens ownership was looking for a coach who would likely be able to stick around for awhile. They stated that they didnt want to worry about having to interview for a new coach in a few years, alluding that older guys are likely to tire out and retire or die who knows.

Anyway Garrett is staying in Dallas as the heir apparent.

Overall the current MO in the NFL is to try to find young coaches. They think that  older coaches have the eye for talent but younger coaches have a better ability to relate to todays players.

I expect to see some more and more Parcell like situations, old coach takes a front office job but has his hand in player personnel. I imagine we will be seeing a whole new layer added to NFL teams.  I know we have seen similar type positions but I imagine that the standard organizational pyramid will eventually look like this:   Position Coaches, Coordinators/Asst Head Coaches/Head Coach/GM/Director of Football Operations-a distinguished ex coach/Exec VP who runs the whole organization, then Owner.

I can't imagine him being interested, I think he is as old as you and me put together.

Clearly there are not perceived strong head coaching candidates available out there as teams are taking chances.

Jim Johnson is now 70 years old and has said he is not interested in a head coaching job. 

I don't really understand the fascination with Harbaugh.  He was a decent special teams coach but his experience is very limited.   He probably has the potential to be a good head coach but the Ravens will be his learning curve.  His hire, to me at least, indicates that the Ravens are going to completely rebuild and purge many of their veterans
