It's one of those damned if you do, damned if you don't things. Whether they deserved to be fired or not, it's been such a revolving door that I feel losing a bad coach still does damage at this point. The team'll look at the new guy NO MATTER WHAT with "oh, you're going to be here for the year and that's it" in the back of their head. For some of the players, it's all they've known in their pro career!

Only way you give him the boot, I think, is if you've got an established, experienced guy coming in that will command respect from the get go. As much as I dislike Eakins' coaching, that hypothetical coach is what we need before we can the guy one season in.
