The only reason to take that job would be for the paycheck for a few years, and knowing Mike Brown, he will make sure that paycheck is as small as he can get away with.
I agree. Would love to see him turn it down, if only so that our Defense is run by a good D. C.. However, if someone like Paul Alexander gets offered the job, then it's in my best interest that Zimmer takes the job.
I wouldn't mind seeing Bratkowski get the Head Coaching job for two reasons. He'll no longer be the O. C., unless he tries to be one of those Head Coaches who also makes the Offensive play calls. Secondly, as Zimmer's close friend, he'll let Zimmer do what he wants and try to give him the tools he needs to succeed (not that Marvin didn't do that, but I'm certain that Brat would).
