Lovie Smith will be the HC for a while
As I stated in another thread, I do not believe that Lovie Smith is going anywhere anytime soon. Reasons I stated earlier were that in the presser that announced Angelo's firing it was said that
The New GM would have to be able to work with Lovie.
The New GM would have to understand Lovie's philosophy
Now there is another reason. Lovie himself will be involved in hiring the New GM.
Do not be surprised if Lovie gets an extension soon after the new GM is hired
