NOBODY SAID LIFE WAS FAIR, CASE #12,397
This WaPo story, “Hard to Get Good Help” reminds us that the offensive and defensive coordinators of the two Super Bowl teams will have to wait another year to get a head coaching job, since all the vacancies have already been filled. Who got the last one? Why, Sean Payton, who was assistant head coach-quarterbacks coach of the Dallas Cowboys, whose offense and quarterback were both lousy in his one year with the team and who was relieved of playcalling duties by the moribund New York Giants last season.
Update: Shockingly, while I was getting a link for the Payton hire, I learn that Payton has turned down the offer from the Raiders and will stay with the Cowboys. Bizarre.
