and we were pretty close to being 9 and 2, if only... We don't need another coach who gets close.
If we get spurned by the A-list coaches and end up having to settle for what is perceived as tier C coach then I hope Hart and the big $$ get on the horn with Paul DePodesta or Bill James or even Billy Beane and come up with metrics to measure the Fedora's, Doerens, Goldens, of the coaching world. It seems there is so much dumb money chasing coaches that have obvious red flags (err, Dooley). I don't understand why AD's rely on politics and "instincts" instead of statistics.
The baseball sabermatricians predict breakout players year after year . . I'm guessing they could quickly break down the tier C coaches so that we pay for value instead of perceived potential.
I'd take Butch Jones or David Shaw over any of the tier B/C guys I've seen mentioned. Off/Def stats for 2011-12 have these two guys rubbing elbows with the "home run" coaches.
