I don't know why people are so eager to push Austin off the sidelines and have him be the GM only? All Coach Austin has done is inherit a terrible football team with a bleak future, blow it up completely, grind through countless prospects, and get better and better and better along the way. He did this with all the stadium chaos going on the past two years, made it to back to back Grey Cup games, coming within a whisker of winning this one.
The fear of losing coordinators is real on any strong team. I love that we have great coordinators working with our great head coach. To draw a comparison, the New England Patriots have had countless great coordinators over the past decade and they lost a bunch of them along the way. I don't think anyone that's ever watched a down of football would suggest that the Pats would have been better off putting Belichek in an office job and promoting a coordinator so they didn't lose him.
I'll take Coach Austin leading our troops for as long as he continues to do such a great job. If we lose a couple great coordinators along the way, that just means we've been winning lots. I'm just fine with that, I'll take my chances on our current head coach.
