Completely agree. It's like these guys are doing something right, but We don 't have time to find out what it is. I'll never understand needing to hire in early January
All of this. "Let's hire an inferior coach because we want a guy right now."
I honestly don't think Fangio wants the job. The Tomsula move surprises me although he does have head coaching experience. I think most of us are ok with Roman going and I hope he takes Geep Cryst with him. We legitimately have some of the best assistants in the business, particularly on the defensive side of the ball where I'd put our staff of Ed Donatell (a former DC himself), Jim Leavitt (a former HC), and Jm Tomsula. They get the most out of players whether they are first round picks, mid-round picks, free agent veterans, or undrafted free agents.
I wouldn't expect us to hold onto these guys forever though.
I did forget that Wade Phillips is on the market however. If for some reason we lost Fangio, he would be the perfect hire. Can you imagine what Wade would do with our guys? It would easily be the most talent he has ever had on defense, from the starters to the backups.
