he's been a position coach and DC at lower levels. Maybe you needed the longer story.

I get that it's not a sexy name, but like was already said earlier - guys that work their butts off to get ahead, not the worst thing in the world. I'm sure being a third tier assistant for the Giants isn't the sexiest thing in the world, but consider that the same tier of coach from Carolina received four promotions (two here, two with the Browns).

How come no one is mentioning this in regards to a minority coaching hire?

This guy just got a helluva promotion!

Not sure why people 'feel better' thinking Gettleman had a hand in this. While he appears to be qualified to evaluate player talent, not sure about coaches. I trust Ron more when it comes to coaching defense. I hope this wasn't just doing a favor for a friend. There were some very qualified candidates available but I guess if you're only offering 1 year deals.....

Gettleman likely helped on that one.


Could Gett have been at the heart of the Warren Belin firing so that he could put in his guy?

Just saying.

Likely, given the lack of job security, only attractive to someone getting their first chance as a position coach.

Belin and the other coaches were let go before Gettleman was named GM.

I knew you were going to say that, but not by long. Just because it wasn't official doesn't mean that Gettleman didn't have his hands in it.

I'm not much into the tinfoil hat stuff.

I wouldn't bet on Gettleman having a heavy hand here. I figure he just went to Rivera and said "hey, this guy's good; why don't you interview him" and he did.
