2. Ken Dorsey, Offensive Coordinator, Buffalo Bills

Like McCown, Ken Dorsey is a former NFL quarterback who has found success in the coaching ranks. A little older than McCown, Dorsey played in the leage from 2003 to 2008, and then spent one year with the Toronto Argonauts in 2010.

In 2013, ironically enough, Dorsey got his start as the Carolina Panthers quarterbacks coach where he spent time tutoring Cam Newton during his prime. In 2019, Dorsey joined the Buffalo Bills as the quarterbacks coach and has since taken on different roles before becoming the offensive coordinator in 2022, taking over for Brian Daboll.

The development of Josh Allen can largely be contributed to Daboll, but Dorsey has been there all along as well, and has learned underneath Daboll. Currently, Dorsey has the Bills flying high as the league's no. 5 overall offense in terms of yards per game and the no. 4 scoring offense.

The Bills' continued success, despite some of Allen's issues with turnovers, can be credited to Dorsey over the past year and a half. He would be a fantastic candidate who understands where this league is headed, offensively.
