Shane Steichen (Eagles Offensive Coordinator)

Remember when I said that Moore would be one of the hottest coaching commodities this offseason? Steichen might be the most popular after what he's done for that Eagles offense, which is humming. The Eagles are 8-0, Jalen Hurts is playing at an MVP-level, and it's because of Steichen and what he's been able to do in Philadelphia. The Saints have to consider hiring this guy.

Frank Smith (Dolphins Offensive Coordinator)

The Dolphins are crazy-good on offense this year and Smith has helped get them to this point. Before getting the OC job in Miami, Smith had spent time as a tight ends coach and also an offensive line coach. The Saints could use help in both of those areas, so Smith's experience could really help this offense improve.

Shane Waldron (Seahawks Offensive Coordinator)

Last but most certainly not least is Waldron, who surprisingly has the Seahawks as an explosive offense. No one expected Seattle to be any good this year after Russell Wilson was traded to Denver but Waldron has been able to dial up plays for Geno Smith to make the Seahawks not only a good team but a division-leading team when nobody expected them to do anything. Waldron is worth interviewing for sure.
