....we just left that movie didn't we? I thought this was supposed to be different.
I got "excited" with Kubiak before all the results were in. Not doing that with O'Brien.
Like you say, we'll all find out together.
The way I see it, I would be very surprised if he didn't bring in his buddies, especially position coaches.
It would be interesting to note everytime a new head coach is hired how many of his buddies he brings.
I believe it's a way to bring in your philosophy quickly because those coaches already know it and have bought into it.
