It would be smart of Pioli to hire a veteran coach like Shanahan. Shanahan knows what it takes to be a head coach and knows how to win. Basically then Pioli can take credit for turning the team around when Shanahan could be playing a big part. But he is the guy who would be hiring Shanahan, so I wouldn't care if he took the credit.
I agree it would be smart to hire Shanahan. We need a veteran coach to handle this young team, not a 1st timer HC. But, the longer it takes for Pioli to make a decision on Herm leads me to believe that Herm will be back next season.
