I am curious if OB had any say in these firings.
It's probable that Kubiak would still be here, if he'd have fired Marciano, Bush, Wade..... Benton. If nothing else, a head coach should be able to assemble a competent staff. & quite frankly I haven't been pleased with many of our position coaches.
So maybe Rick is doing what Kubiak wouldn't & shedding dead weight.
I am cautious that it sounds like I was right & Rick Smith did not have as much influence over the HC hire as I would like. Well, not that I wanted Rick Smith picking our HC, but the GM should have some influence over the HC, I think.
The HC should have absolutely no influence on scouts & directors of pro personnel.
At the very least, it sounds like our HC & our GM are the heads of two departments, reporting directly to Bob McNair.
