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.
Name 1 First Time NFL Head Coaching Prospect that has gone in and demanded full control of football operations, let alone top dollar long term contract.
