Did they do away with being unable to block promotional moves?
I know they could block lateral moves but if he gets a promotion, I'm not sure you can tell him no.
In any event, I don't think he took the Dallas job because he specifically wants to be the DC in Dallas.
I think it had more to do with familiarity with Kiffen and given his choice, I think he'd likely go anywhere else and coach for Lovie.
He's an older guy himself and probably doesn't see much of an opportunity to be a head coach again after his abysmal stint in Detroit. For him, the "right" place may not be the highest paying or the most prominent. He seems to be a guy who values familiarity and possesses a strong sense of loyalty. Exactly the type of guy you would want on your staff so long as you are the guy he's loyal to because you know what he brings and you don't have to worry about him taking off for greener pastures. You can't really put a price on being able to work with someone you consider to be your best friend both inside and outside the game.
