Bill Barber is not a better (or worse) coach based on the job others did. Moreover, if were looking at Hitch as opposed to Barber... The team improved under Hitch. Noticeably.
That's not a very good analogy.

Using the coach's immediate predecessor's and successor's, success with that team can give you a gauge of his ability to coach that particular team if the team's core remains largely the same.

For example:

Team X has 70 points 1 year, and 95 points the next year. Team X remained relatively constant but there was a coaching change.

You could draw from that the coach that took over is better suited for coaching that team then his predecessor.
