I actually (given the available coaches) keep chan on as HC. And if he did a great job then keep him on other wise next year we all know the crop of coaches that will be available.
I don't think another experiment year (with Chan this time) was in anybody's best interest. You've got to go with what you have avaliable because at the end of the day this is an entertainment business and failure doesn't profit as well, knowingly risking an off year isn't an option. Either way, just because guys like Shanny and Chin are potential candidates for '10 doesn't mean we would land them.
To everyone who doesn't agree with Todd Haley being the new coach, if Tony believes shouldn't YOU believe?
I am with you there - "A bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush".
Who is to say that next year we could have got Shanny, Gruden, Chower or anyother or the "top" HC to come to KC, they might not want to come unless they had total control and we would have to dump Pioli also to get them much less not want to come to the boonies in KC? If we were just going to try to tread water for a year they should have just keep HE.
