That's what makes them attractive head coaches.
When you interview for perspective jobs do you tell your interviewer to pay you less than you can make and that you want less accountability with no responsibilities?
Unless the front office has reversed course since whining to NFLN about coaches having to much control, I have no reason to believe this position has changed.
So, in other words, you don't have a clue...
I seriously doubt that any first time NFL head coaching candidate anywhere has walked into a job interview and told the prospective employer that he demanded complete and utter control of all football operations.. " OR I'LL STAY AT PODUNK U!!!!!"
