EDIT: Jim Bernhardt's role will probably look more like this:
So basically, Jim Bernhardt is the Ernie Adams to Bill O'Brien's Bill Belichick. But Bernhardt is probably not nearly the football savant that Adams is, so he will probably do more "Bill O'Brien Quality Control" than "Regression Analysis on Why We Should Go For It on 4th and 2."
If Bernhardt brings half as much to the table as the focus of that article, O'Brien - and the Texans - will be very lucky. No wonder Belichick has been so successful. He's got a football savant to advise him.
oh and rep for finding this article. Good digging.
