Andy Reid Effect Could Help Oust SchianoOctober 23rd, 2013
An interesting point was made this afternoon on Pro Football Talk Live, the NBC Sports show hosted by Mike Florio, who implied that the fast turnaround in Kansas City likely will inspire NFL owners to be more quick to fire head coaches of struggling yet talented teams.
As always, owners are always seeking trends that can help their clubs, and perhaps Andy Reid’s revival job with the undefeated Chiefs will inspire quick moves for new head coaches that are less about cleaning house and more about maximizing what’s in place.
Reid walked into a talented roster in Kansas City that won just two games last season. Hmm. That has a familiar feel to it. Ironically, Schiano and Reid are longtime friends, dating back to Schiano’s days at Rutgers.
The topic was raised during Florio’s coaching “hot seat” feature, which placed Greg Schiano as No. 1 on the list. Below him were Leslie Frazier, Gary Kubiak, Jim Schwartz and Joe Philbin.
Whether this theory applies to Schiano remains to be seen. On his current course, Schiano will be fired regardless.
