Note: Some of the best coaching staffs have ex HC as coordinators

Texans- Broncos- Packers- Saints ( back when they had Gregg Williams)

It's a trend worth looking at

It's happened in the case of Meeks going from D-coordinator to D-backs assistant coach, but I've never heard of a situation where the head coach would be demoted to a coordinator. Too much pride involved...would never happen.

meeks wasn't demoted. his contract as defensive coordinator under fox had expired.

he was then hired as secondary coach under rivera.

Of course, but has a head coach ever been the coordinator for the team he was coaching the year before? Doubtful.

You don't go from being head coach to fuging d-cord on the same fuging team.

I was about to ask the same question...has that happened on any team ever?

This is NOT the same situation, he would still be on the same team, basically taking a demotion. Wont happen.

you're misunderstanding what people are saying.

HC's do not get fired and then stay on (with the same team that fired them) as an assistant.

Yeah, that's what happens when I throw that word around too loosely. Didn't mean he got demoted. Just took a smaller job within the same organization. Only Rivera's situation would call for demotion since he's still under contract...even though that will never happen in the first place.

Gunther Cunningham was fired as HC of the Chiefs and came back a couple years later as DC. Not immediately the next year, though.

No I understand.... And yes the chances of it happening are very low.

That isn't how it works.

New coach brings in "his" staff.
