Correct. As I said earlier, the issue isn't hiring buddies; the issue is whether or not you have the stones to fire them when things go bad. It's one of those "tough decisions" that high level people sometimes have to make.
Pete Carroll fired one of his buddies, who was the offensive coordinator. You see how that turned out.
