Who are LB coaches in NY?

Since it looks like we are continually talking with their guys for GM, maybe they are directing some of this before they are actually announced?

Are GMs even getting involved in position coaches hirings and firings, unless it's OC or DC? I don't think so

I can see the WRs coach - outside of a little progression from LaFell, did that spot really get better this year? Not much, imo

I can see the RBs coach - if the line was doing its job. With the lack of producton from Double Trouble, plus Tolbert (Little Meanie) overall this season, there has to be blame somewhere. This is a Chicken - Egg thing imo though, and honestly, I'd say it was the line's fault moreso than the RBs. Honestly surprised Brown wasn't fired, if not Matsko here.

Can't really see the LBs coach - umm.. why? He had Keek running with a high motor all season long, and outside of his understandable rookie mistakes, had one of the strongest units on the team. This one makes no sense at all, so I'm hoping you guys are right and we have someone even better coming in. Because if this is a scapegoat firing, that will not sit well with both the team and other coaches in the locker room.

Let Dave Wannstedt as LB coach rumors begin

All of these firings are so the new GM can hire his own and assemble the staff... that way next year, if Rivera does poorly, less staff has to be hired and fired
