I don't really have any strong feelings about Coulson, and he could have stayed dead for all I cared...
But part of me would be amused if the SSR kept up the super-soldier research during the war and routinely took samples from Cap, including -we're mostly all grownups here- sperm. And when Steve goes missing, what samples they have were kept in cold storage.
Around the sixties, the project is dusted off and SHIELD decides to use the samples to create a new super-soldier in an old fashioned way. They artificially inseminate one of their agents, hoping the kid inherits some of his father's powers.
