Im not for or against this idea. I want whoever our hc is to be able to leave his own imprint on the team. If he wants to keep it status quo on defense so be it. If he has a different approach to implement lets do it and not handcuff his vision for years. I'm cool either way
I can't see Emery not wanting a HC that would keep Marinelli. That would probably sway him for one direction or the other in his search
NFL Rules for Interviewing Assistant Coaches | eHow.com http://www.ehow.com/list_6742856_nfl...#ixzz2H9jxGLkmQuote:
- The NFL does not differentiate between levels of assistant coaches in its rules regarding their availability to interview with other teams. Whether the coach is a defensive line coach or an offensive coordinator, the rules are the same. If a team wishes to interview an assistant coach who is still under contract with another team for its head coaching position, the current team is required to give permission for the interview as long as it happens between the end of the team's season and March 1. After March 1, teams can still ask, but the current team is not obligated to give permission.
- Lateral Move
- An NFL team cannot interview an assistant coach who is under contract as an assistant with another team for the following season without the permission of his current organization. Teams will usually give permission upon request, particularly if a lower level coach is set to take an offensive or defensive coordinator position elsewhere, but the current team is not required to give permission.
Wow. Good to know. I guess a contract is a contract unless you want to be a HC. Anyone that is hoping for a promotion to anything other than HC has to you know... actually honor his contract.
What is good for the goose is not necessarily good for the gander in the NFL.
