Next for Haslett: He privately feels there are at least four franchises making changes where he would be an ideal fit. Haslett might be overstating that just a bit, but he does figure to be a popular candidate in such a wide-open market. Although he compiled a losing record in New Orleans in six seasons, "Haz" is more highly regarded around the league than he was by Saints management. Given the volume of job openings, it will be surprising if he doesn't land one of them.

Next for Saints: Given the uncertainty of the franchise, the eccentricities of owner Tom Benson and the difficulty any coach has trying to lead a team in a city with so many diversions (and few of them good), there is a perception the Saints' job will scare off good candidates. A lot of observers feel the Saints will have a problem filling this job. Baloney. Despite all the negatives, there are still only 32 of these jobs and candidates will line up at the door. Names? Bet on some of the names being mentioned elsewhere -- like Rivera, Gray and Williams -- with Benson trying to land someone with a reputation for being a hard-ass and disciplinarian. On the offensive side, keep an eye on San Diego coordinator Cam Cameron, another guy who will generate interest from multiple teams. And on a pair of Pittsburgh Steelers aides: offensive line coach Russ Grimm and offensive coordinator Kent Whisenhunt.
