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.

I have been campaigning for him to be fired for a wile know. (exact date and time Giants game) The Defense at the beginning of the season was horrendous. Allowing 100 yard rushing games seemed to be the norm and or pass perfection was nonexistent. Now I look at the Defense and see hope ( note: I do not believe the stats reflect the true performance, overrated) but, they are playing better and seem to be moving in the right direction. We know Rivera was brought here for his defensive background.

So the question comes to mind! Is Rivera worth keeping as a Defensive Coordinator?

I don't think you can clearly justify keeping him as a HC, but the argument keeping him as DC is worth discussing and something I'm open to looking at


you're going to get part of your wish........

he is going to be working with our defense next year.

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

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

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

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.
