    No, you really have to give guys permission to look -- it's a courtesy to the coaches. What kind of job doesn't let you look for a better position?

    Actually, I don't think you can prevent guys from interviewing unless they have the assistant HC designation (which Payton does I think). You can prevent them from interviewing for lateral positions (e.g,. Zimmer for DC positions).

    I'd like to see a 3-4 Defensive coordinator brought in and GO GET THE CHIEFS O-LINE COACH!

    I'd hire Edsall the Uconn HC In some capacity - bright offensive mind and Parcell tree coaching.......

    I took this as Parcells is staying. Maybe he thinks a new DC & OC is what is needed.

    Now here comes Norv & Dom... :D

    I hope we don't lose Payton. If Bill leaves he is the man.

    Yep...this can definately be taken two ways, but on first glimpse, it doesn't look good for BP staying should they both go.

    BP's work would be even more cut out for him, unless he planned on getting rid of them sometimes earlier during the season.

    If not, he may start thinking that it isn't worth the hassle trying to start again with a new DC and OC....although, BP needed to take over the OC duties a LONG time ago.....IF, in fact, he let Payton run it.

    Dom Capers and Norv as Asst's would be fantastic replacements.

    I think with Doms 3-4 experience, that would be a good switch.
    Not sure about Norv. As I stated in another thread, I wonder if the game has passed him by.
