You can probably add Jim More Jr. to that list as well. Maybe even dust off some old favorites like Jim Fassel or Steve Marriuci. There are a lot of guys out there with head coaching experience that might jump for what Brown is offering (even if it is a dead-end job with little chance of success -- ego is a funny thing).
Reality is, though, that the Bengals (or any team) would be silly to bring in a coach from off the streets with the possibility existing that a labor dispute would wipe out all OTAs for 2011. If there's a lockout, an "outside hire" might not even meet with his team until a week or two before the season begins. Their best move, likely, is to retain Lewis or promote Zimmer.
