    The start date for the bidding process will be on January 29th, 2012 at 12:00PM EST (noon).

    1. Each team has the choice of whether they would like to retain their current head coach, offensive coordinator, and defensive coordinator. Interim head coaches may be retained as coordinators or as a head coach. However if retained as a coordinator, teams are eligible to "steal" the coordinator which is explained in rule #4.

    2. Position coaches may move up to the coordinator position or the head coach position.

    3. Coordinators may move up to the head coach position as well as remain coordinators if they are not offered head coaching jobs.

    4. Teams can "steal" retained coordinators by offering a head coaching jobs. However they cannot "steal" retained coordinators to offer them another coordinator job. Retained coordinators can be promoted to head coach if they fire the head coach first. In house promotions must be made before the bidding process if you wish to forgo the bidding process.

    5. Each team will receive $10 million in their bank.

    6. Retained salaries go as following: $5 million for head coach ; $2.5 million for offensive coordinator ; $2.5 million for defensive coordinator.

    7. Free agent head coaches and coordinators have minimum salaries: $3 million for head coach ; $1.5 million for offensive coordinator ; $1.5 million for defensive coordinator.

    8. Coaching staffs were frozen as of January 1st, 2012 at the end of the 2011 regular season.

    9. You must post whether you will retain or fire your current coaching staff in the designated thread.

    10. Teams will bid on coaches, like in free agency. When a coach is bid on, if he goes 48 hours without someone else raising the bid, he is awarded to the bidding team.

    11. Teams must raise bids by at least $100K.

    12. The max bid for a head coach is $7.0 mil. When a head coach hits $7.0 mil, all teams will have the opportunity to match the $7.0 mil bid within 24 hours. The max bid for a coordinator is $3.0 mil, teams will also have the opportunity to match that $3.0 mil bid.

    13. The teams that matched a 7 mil bid will be placed in a pool where a randomizer will decide the destination for the coach (like in real life, money isn't everything). The same thing goes for the 3 mil bid for coordinators.

    14. During the 24 hours when teams can match a coordinator's $3.0M salary, teams can offer that coach a head coaching position which trumps the coordinator position. However after the 24 hour period, the coach is off-limits for head coaching jobs.

    15. You CANNOT hire a coach that has been out for coaching (out of work, not retired) for over 3 years (Cowher, Dungy, and Gruden are not eligible; Jeff Fisher is eligible), college coaches, and fictional characters.

    16. You cannot fire coaches that you have signed via Coaching Free Agency.

    If there are any questions, feel free to ask.

    So if we want a new OC or that position is currently vacant (i.e. Pittsburgh's Bruce Arians has retired) you dont have to fire an entire staff to have a new OC hired correct?

    Correct, though you have to wait until bidding obviously if you're going out of org. You can promote from within now if you want, but the overall point is you can keep the rest of your staff.

    Can you demote a HC to a coordinator position and just fire the coordinator? Or would you just have to fire the HC and try to sign him back as a free agent?

    You'd have to fire the head coach and try to re-sign him as a coordinator... and the current coordinator you're trying to replace.

    Can I hire someone else's position coach (QB coach, DB coach ...) as a coordinator and/or HC?

    It's a bidding process. GIK will make a coach bidding thread.

    I know we cannot fire coaches that we hire, but can we re-hire a coach that was originally on our staff that we fired?

    Not sure why I'd want to do that, just wanted to know if it's an option.

    I'm assuming Nolan will be on the Falcons staff right?
