Well, the history has more to do with Lovie Smith than Babich, but Babich was the guy that Smith replaced him with.
Didn't know his son worked here but looked it up. Per Dan Pompei, Rivera apparently tried to get hold of Babich when he was setting up his staff originally. Guess there's no bad feeling there, after all.
Knowing that, with Smith out, it makes sense he could go after Babich to replace Belin.
figured that's what you meant, but didn' t know if there was something I wasn't aware of.
Definitely more between Rivera and Lovie. Lovie never really wanted Rivera, but he worked out well and Marinelli wasn't available.
Babich makes plenty of sense, but I almost like Pagano more. Babich might make more sense since he was eventually demoted under Lovie for Marinelli.
