Exaggerating a bit. Kubiak, yes. Main reasoning though is he had an owner uneducated in how the league plays and who had meetings with Kubiak and Smith as he learned his way. Easy to say at this point McNair is no longer uneducated in that department.

Belichik did not have full authority. In fact, some of the more bigger moves he got approval from Art Modell before hand. His first coaching was with the Browns after all. He had say but not some mystical full authority. All coaches have some say in personnel unless under a GM with an iron hand which is more rare than often.

Carroll also did not have full authority. His first coaching job was with the Patriots. His experiences with the Patriots and the power issues there is what caused him requesting more in Seattle.

Shanny did not have full authority either. It was one of the issues. His first job was with the Raiders. He and Al Davis butted heads often and frequently hence his short time period there.

Previous you named Spurrier who also didn't have full authority and even got overridden by Snyder. Fisher didn't either as that wasn't a case that happened with a Bud Adams team.

Coaches generally have input on personnel and that won't change. Only the most heavy handed GM's and owners would make it their sole responsibility and that is rare in this league. So no, the common stance is coaches have strong input on personnel and they choose their own staff.

Also I believe a point was brought McNair would be cheap in regards to staff (though again staff is chosen by the head coach 9 times out of 10). The Texans are one of the top teams in money spent. McNair is hardly cheap. Last time the listing came out we were 7th in this area.
