Just my 0.02
I doubt it... I think he no longer has that pull, otherwise, Howson would've been fired and not Hitchcock a few seasons ago.

let's not pretend Hitch turned down legit coaching offers to stay on as Priest's advisor. He'd be gone if anybody was serious about hiring him in the last few seasons. The only reason he's still in town is because he's on the payroll...
