I really have no problem with maintaining that head coaches keep coordinators and high quality assistant coaches, as long as those coordinators and coaches have proven in their careers that they're good at their jobs (if they've been successful elsewhere in multiple places, then they're obviously not the problem here) It's not just teaching the players a new X's and O's, you have to get completely redefine to the scouting and pro personnel departments what they look for in players. Head coaches come and go too easily to build the entire organization around their whim, and in my mind one of the biggest problems with the Dallas organization is that the power structure has been too heavily lopsided towards the whims of the head coach (particularly when the head coach is Dave Campo). The biggest factor that leads to franchises becoming the Cleveland Browns (or the Dallas Cowboys) is perpetually changing up schemes and systems and organizational infrastructure every time you change head coaches. I'd rather keep the Steelers models, establish an organizational model of consistency and continuity from player personnel to techniques and schemes. Tomlin inherited just about his entire staff from top to bottom.
Despite labeling myself a "realist", no one understands my pain or appreciates my special truth. Stupid world.
