I noticed too the Argos seem lazy in recruiting by just signing 'Cat cast offs (6 currently on the Argo roster). I doubt they will be as bad as Hamilton has been the last 5 years. The Argos will be fine if they can find a few more former #1NFL draft picks in the off season......
I think just the opposite.
Had Gill moved on I am sure Barrett would have been a candidate to replace him at UB.
With Gill re-signed and UB coming off their dream season Barrett will be at an all time sell high position.
He is in a no-win dead end position.
If the team does well it would be considered because of Gill.
If the team does poorly his butt would be on the line.
The Argos are very much at a low point, and the new coach would be given plenty of time and slack to turn things around!!
Any coach worth his salt will always take a chance at HC and the challenge and glory that can come with it. I loved Danny as a player but thought he was a little too emotional as HC. Perhaps he's learned from his exile. I will always wish that man all the best, he's a brick, and I mean that in the best possible English way
I think the way the Argos parted ways with Stubbler who apparently is in litigation with the Argos will have a negative effect on their ability to recruit a HC. Whoever steps in will want a bullet proof contract to step in that pig pen...
