Many of them have quick tempers and do not tolerate bull****.
After watching the Lombardi documentary on "A Football Life" the past couple of weeks, his son nailed it when he said Vince had a quick temper and perfectionist attitude. Two great things for a coach but lousy for a father.
If he's a Belichick or Sean Payton kid of A-hole, things look good. If he is a Schiano or Nick Saban kind of A-hole though...
Would rather have had Zimmer, but O'Brien seems like a safe hire.
