If he's good at making in-game decisions, that will help him find his next job. It seems like he has the respect of his peers and execs around the league. But he will need to show solid decision making while he's here. Win-Loss record won't even be factored in to his getting/not getting the next job he applies for. Because everyone knew he was taking on a job where he was expected to lose, and lose spectacularly.
I know these are coveted jobs. Especially for a guy whose professional career consisted of a handful of minor league seasons. But I'm still confused by his decision to take this job. Just like this conversation, he had to know he will be let go when/if things ever turn around. Given that the sport seems to respect him, patience may have been the better route. I'm sure a more desirable job would have come 'round
I think he took the job, because it was 1 of 30. If I recall correctly, he interviewed at a number of places, but came up short. Team disaster offered him an opportunity.
