Not that this lies entirely at the feet of Eakins but I think any coach given a 4 year term has to have a little bit of Moses in him, in that ownership believes he can bring a team to some kind of promised land. I don't think the Oil were banking on that Eakins-lead promised land being a legitimate shot at Ekblad.
