No, in other words I am pretty confidant that a high profile perspective NFL HC is going to want to make as money as they can with as much control as they can negotiate. Understand that most all perspective NFL HC are the ones being pursued so it is seller's (Head Coach's) market. As far as Shaw and O'Brien they could decide to stay at Podunk U. It might not be the first time they've made that decision. OR they could also decide to go to an NFL team that pays more AND offers them full control of player personnel. A lesser NFL HC profile or a "a last chance" candidate might better fit your expectations for a HC demands.
