no...the difference in cost between ken stevens or craig ramsey and evason and jj is huge
His point was that a $3M salary for a coach is inconsequential in the scheme of things when a team is paying players ~$65M already. When they were keeping the payroll as low as possible 10 years ago, sure, but there's really no chance it's a factor now.
