San Francisco doesn't have a head coach yet, but it's making assistant coaches around the league rich.

"That [honor] will last about a week and then somebody else will get it," Johnson said last Thursday. Today, that distinction belongs to Monte Kiffin. Kiffin, who was to have flown to San Francisco for an interview yesterday, agreed to a contract to remain Tampa Bay's defensive coordinator.

If all the NFL coaches were to go out for a beer, Raheem Morris would be the guy to get carded. When the Buccaneers promoted the then-32-year-old in January, they made him one of the youngest NFL coaches in history. He's off to a very rough 0-4 start and the Buccaneers are breaking in a new quarterback. If Tampa Bay isn't the worst team in the NFL, it sure is in the argument. Welcome to the business. "The most difficult thing, just like for every coach, is losing," said Morris, who turned 33 in September.

Have you had a chance to catch your breath? Chip Kelly scoffed at the question. "We're not running 40s," he said. Kelly had arrived at the Senior Bowl only hours earlier, but the question was more about the whirlwind five days since he had been named the Eagles' new coach. The man who runs an offense like Usain Bolt runs the 100 meters did not seem overwhelmed by the jump to the pros as he went about his business over three days in Mobile, Ala. Still, there is "that great unknown," with Kelly, or any coach without NFL experience, as one general manager put it last week during a break between Senior Bowl practices.

A couple of teams currently in need of a head coach called Monte Kiffin recently to ask him for his opinion of Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley. Kiffin's recommendation: Hire him. Hire him the minute the Seahawks' season is officially over. Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200. Do not bother talking to anyone else. He's your man. "I try not to exaggerate," Kiffin, who once called Bradley a once-in-a-lifetime coach, told the Daily News in a telephone interview last week.
