Hitch, Hartley, Crawford, Burns...... Jackass will never hire anyone whom he cannot control or who can do a better job than he as far as coaching goes. He has also become increasingly impossible to deal with. Why do you think that Kevin Lowe said no to him?
Hartley would not have been given a shot. He's readily bench the entire team, hold practices, and demand defensive responsibilities. All the things that Jackass stays away from as a coach.
