I'd be open to it though
Just because he understands advanced math doesn't mean that would be how he coaches. What it would mean is that he can look at the data to help him analyze problems and point things out to guys. If anything it helps it puts another tool in the coaching toolbox.

Though honestly I'm not sure where the idea of Cone ever came from. Has he been rumored for any coaching jobs anywhere to substantiate the idea that he even wants to be a coach?
