You need a coach to come in and be the bad guy and make these changes. The way I see it you either hire a hard a$$ who fixes things but is gone in 2 or 3 years or you hire another Gulutzan who refuses to stand up to the veterans and stabilizes the team in mediocrity.
Agree to disagree. You can accomplish what you're talking about without saying we need a 2 or 3 year coach. Everyone agrees changes should be coming, but starting with the idea that they need a new coach again in 2 or 3 years is a non-starter for me. Hitchcock stayed 7 years in Dallas, and 4 years in both Phili and Columbus. This idea that a tough coach .. which would be just fine to acquire ... can only last 2 or 3 years isn't a fact like you are stating it.
