As an aside, that person felt Lovie Smith would not be coming to Reliant. Just thought it was an interesting observation. I don't want to say who it is because I don't want to jeopardize my source, and I didn't say I was going to put it on the internet! So not revealing the source.
I'd be really good with this. Sooner or later someone from Belichick's coaching tree is going to work out. This guy looks very promising.
