    I don't know anything about him, but he reads kind of like JT to OSU. Spent time with the Browns in the past. Championship coach in a lesser league. I'm guessing Bernie put in a good word for him.

    I think it's pretty clear that Haslam wants to find a new NFL face. That's why they aren't really looking at former NFL HC's. It would be nice if they would at least talk to Lovie Smith while they are in Chicago.

    Stupid stupid move IMO. Lets take a long shot and hope they work out. We'll be back in this position 2-3 years from now.

    Find someone who has proven they can coach in NFL, and one that is a proven winner. They want to build a championship caliber team with consistency? They aren't going to get that with some unproven coach

    The problem is Haslem is looking for someone that will be there for a long time, so he wants a Cowher (when he took over in Pittsburgh) or Tomlin type. The Steelers have only had, what, 3 coaches since the 60's? Needless to say, those are very hard to find, and today's NFL is different than the Noll/Landry days in terms of turnover (not the least of which is because of the money they now make) but that's what he is looking for. I do think it's too bad he isn't even considering a guy like Lovie Smith (if he in fact isn't) but I think he is looking for someone young that he can try and lock up for a while. Not sure who that will be now, though.

    If they are going to throw a pile of money at someone I'd rather it be one of them. They are both proven winners for the most part. I bet Gruden would bite if you gave him 50 mil over 5 years.

    I wouldn't laugh, actually. Dude knows what he's doing.

    Bio from the Montreal Website.

    And I can't beleive you guys, that are old enough, don't remember him from the first go 'round. I'd say if there's a knock on him that he's somewhat of a nomad, but, he's been in Montreal for 5 years now.

    Its not just that. He wants to be the owner that brings in the next Bill Bellichek. Its part wanting something "new" and a larger part of arrogance.

    You're passing up proven NFL coaches to go into uncharted waters. I said
    after I heard he had wanted to see our defense switch to a 34. Could be a Jerry-esque clone, that feels he's a football genius
    - but you get the same results year after year.
