I know there's a lockout, with not much real football news and no on-field activity, so it's probably tough to get a grasp on potential head-coaching candidates for 2012.
Not for me.
I always have an eye on assistant coaches who could soon be head coaches. That's why I've come up with a list of 10 assistants I think will be on that proverbial "hot" list soon enough.
The only requirement is that they haven't been a head coach in the NFL before. Some names you will recognize. Others you might not, especially since they aren't even coordinators yet.
But keep an eye on these 10. Some of them might be a head coach in your city soon.
