Chris Johnson: New coach will report to me

Recommended Posts

FAN  is reporting that CJ is telling the press that the new coach will be his pick, and will be on an equal footing with Macc.  Reporting to CJ directly......Oy.....

I mean on one hand, lots of teams are doing it this way. On the other, none of those teams have the Johnsons calling the shots. 

 

On the good side, new HC won't answer to Macc, so there's that.

This could be good. Might mean that Maccagnan isn't on solid footing. Could also mean that if someone like Harbaugh wants control of everything he's going to get it.

Since 2015 the Johnsons have sunk 109.75 MM in guaranteed cash to Revis, Wilkerson, and Trumaine.

I have seen others on this board say that this is also the case in places like Philadelphia. Is this true? Do other teams have winning formulas where the GM and Coach separately report to the owner?

sadly, it is a  better option then reporting to Mac until he proves he belongs in that chair - this is good news

maybe so but it's what they have now.  how'd that work out?

You're right.  Looks like Macc is on thinner ice than originally thought.

But that is not good.  It means that they will continue this forced, arranged marriage cycle.  Johnson might force a new GM on whatever coach they hire.

Keeping Macc is debatable.  But by keeping him... the commitment should have been to let him hire a coach, and the two of them work together towards the same vision.

This is an idiotic organizational structure and part of the reason we has such finger pointing and disfunction this past season.

That said, if we start with the assumption that Mac is staying it almost makes sense. Granted Mac should have been gone, but if you insist on keeping him, are you really going to empower him? I think this says Mac is on thin ice and the new HC will have a lot of sway.

How is this good news?  Chris Johnson thought footballs were round 2 years ago

 A good HC can take the job and push Mac out if he does not improve

I would think there are fewer candidates who would would want to report to Mac - especially guys with experience

I told you guys Macc would not be an authoritarian. He's gonna give the coaches reports on potential draft picks, free agents, manage the cap, build draft boards, report on possible trades that could be made but he'll do none of that in a vacuum & he's done nothing here completely on his own. This confirms to me the defensive lean that Bowles had has hamstruck this organization & will take new defensive coaches & and a few more players to fix. 

4 years later with a complete lack of development on the defensive side of the ball & 85% of our assets used there. Bowles was a nightmare, at least if we had signed an offensive coach, I'm sure we wouldn't have ignored offense at the top of the draft so often.
