Jack Del Rio - Plan B?

The news has come down that the Jaguars have officially fired Jack Del Rio. Not much of a surprise there. The Jaguars have been pretty disappointing pretty consistently and Del Rio never seemed to offer much as a head coach.

There has been a lot of speculation this season (well, every season since he's been here) that this might be the year Mike Zimmer gets a an offer to jump ship and be a head coach somewhere else. It should go without saying that NO ONE in Bengals Nation wants that to happen. If it were up to me, we would chain Mike Zimmer up in the basement of PBS and never let him leave. Make him Assistant Head Coach. Pay him more than Marvin. I don't care what, don't let him go.

That being said, if the unthinkable were to happen and a team (hell, possibly the Jaguars) lured him away, wouldn't Del Rio be a perfect candidate to replace him? Say what you want about his tenure in Jacksonville, Del Rio is still a premiere defensive mind squarely in the Marvin Lewis school of football. They are already good friends and have worked together before. Seems like the perfect fit to me. I hope it doesn't come to this because I want Zimmer to retire as a Bengal, but I can think of a lot worse scenarios than teaming Del Rio up with Marvin to run this defense.
