Just saying Jerry seems to be keen on hiring the staff, and has done so with his last two coaches. All the way to hiring the assistant coaches before the head coach. Now what other teams do or don't do is probably not consistent from one franchise to the next, or even in the same franchise. My OPINION is you allow the head coach to hire the people he wants to infuse his philosophy to the entire team. I find it odd that Jerry wants to assemble a staff, and in some cases do so before he has decided which puppet - I mean which head coach he is bringing in next. Especially when he hired an assistant head coach in Garrett and divided the duties of "head coach" between Garrett and Phillips. He undermined Phillips with that move as he "Trained" Garrett for the next head coaching opening he anticipated. Never seen that before.
