The O.D.B

any one mentioned this guy for OC? Aaron Kromer

15 posts in this topic

I'm not sure if he's an Outside zone guy but, the two areas emboldened below seem to speak to our needs. His OC gig saw the Bears as the 2nd best scoring offense with Jay Cutler at the helm. He looks like a nasty gentleman too.

Coaching career[edit]

Kromer was hired by the New Orleans Saints in 2008 as the running backs coach, before becoming the offensive line coach the following season. Under his tenure as OL coach, the Saints sent five players to a combined nine Pro Bowls, and tied for the fewest sacks in the league with 96.[1] Under Kromer, the Saints line twice won the Madden Most Valuable Protectors Award as the best offensive line in the league (in 2009 and 2011).[2] The Saints won Super Bowl XLIV with Kromer. He filled in as the Saints' interim head coach for the first six games of the 2012 NFL season as Joe Vitt and Sean Payton served their suspensions for "BountyGate".[3] The Saints went 2-4 during that season-opening stretch, losing each of their first four games by eight points or less.

On January 16, 2013, Kromer was announced as the new offensive coordinator and offensive line coach for the Chicago Bears. He joined Marc Trestman's initial coaching staff, after working with Trestman in Oakland.[4] In his first year, the Bears offense had the second-best scoring offense in the league with 445 points, behind the Denver Broncos, while finishing fifth with 4281 passing yards.[5] The offense also broke team records in total yards (6,109), passing yards (4,450), passing touchdowns (32) and first downs (344).[6] On February 12, 2014, offensive line assistant Pat Meyer was named offensive line coach while Kromer, who served as offensive coordinator and line coach in 2013, remained the offensive coordinator and continued to be involved in all aspects of the offense, including the line with an increased role with the passing game.[7]

On January 17, 2015, the Buffalo Bills reached a two-year deal with Kromer to be the team's new offensive line coach.[8] He was later suspended for 6 games by the Buffalo Bills after punching a child in the face, throwing his fishing pole in the lake, then threatening to kill his entire family.[9]

On January 30, 2018, Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay promoted him to run game coordinator, after Matt LaFleur left to become the offensive coordinator of the Tennessee Titans. In order to help fill the void, McVay also named tight ends coach Shane Waldron the pass game coordinator.

He is a very good O-line coach but not sure how much experience he has calling plays. Trestman would have called the offense.

I was shocked when I first read that as well. I went out and read several of the news reports about it and from what I could make of the story it looks like the kids were using his chairs to fish and when they were done they didn't put them back. When they didn't put them back he confronted them to tell them to put them back where they found them. (simply a guess on my part) One of or all of the kids either ignored him or started talking back, at which point he lost his ****. If I'm envisioning the story correctly based on the few details there are, I could look past this.  

I mean we all know at least one 15-17 (I'm assuming) boy that needs a good pop, not that you should do it but, you'd like to.

I would think Mark would've been calling the plays but, I didn't find anything that says he did. 

If he is a good playcaller his Oline and Run game qualifications would seem to ake him a good fit for us.
