Most college football and NFL head coaches have some experience playing at the collegiate or professional level. Who will be the next college football/NFL stars to make the transition from player to coach?

NFL analyst Daniel Jeremiah threw out a name earlier today, and a lot of other analysts seem to be on board.

Who does Jeremiah think will make a great head coach?

Former Boise State star Kellen Moore.

Moore was the No. 41 quarterback in the 2007 recruiting class, according to 247Sports, but went on to become the all-time winningest quarterback in Division-I college football history with 50 wins.

He went undrafted due to his small stature, but learned quickly and even had a 435-yard passing game against the Washington Redskins.

Moore shifted from player to coaching staff for the Dallas Cowboys this year and currently serves as the team's quarterbacks coach.

Would he make a good college coach?
