How about Rolston? Tocchet has that kind of experience.
strange, I reall a guy in a different sport going 36-44 with 4 losing seasons out of 5. He got fired and when he got a second chance he's had one losing season his first, with a incredible number of championships. I'm sure you've heard of the guy.

It seems rather normal for first time coaches to struggle while the second time around they have figured things out. Now obviously it doesn't always work that way, but you lack of logic in your line of thinking, just makes me feel sorry for you.

I voiced my opinion, you disagree, we will never know who is right because you can't hire them both and have them coach simultaneously in different dimensions.

This part is condescending in the most ludicrous fashion. What "bragging rights" would there be? There is no other team with a coaching vacancy. How could someone consider hiring a coach to supply "bragging rights" unless they also thought he was the best available coach? If someone thinks he is the best available coach, isn't that legitimate reason enough for wanting him?
