As a 'Hawks fan, I hate to see him go, but he obviously was going to be moving onward and upward at some point. Kudos to him for snagging a very exclusive gig.

I wonder if those two coaches will be thought of in conjuntion with each other in the future. Philadelphia wanted Chip #1 and to my understanding Gus was #2. If Gus has a great career and Chip flames out, you can bet the Philly fans will talk about it.

If Gus flames out and Chip has a great career, the Philly fans will still talk about it.

If Gus has a great career starting at Jacksonville everyone's going to talk about it. Because...come on, Jacksonville?

I'm curious because Khan originally wanted to buy the Rams. If he succeeds and Kroenke flames out with Fisher as coach, it could get interesting in St Louis.

this is good news in that hopefully both 49er coordinators will stay with the team for at least one more year given that I believe only the Arizona job if left open

G. Roman not hood enough yet. Think ned another yer under belt. Could get Ten Tit or Caro job in 2014 if Mhchak and/or Rivera have crap seasons again and get fored.

Could also be in playbfor jets job after Rex Ryan get axed after terrible 2013 seapsn (odds r strong with this). RomN kind of serious tough guy so would be good departure from comical cheerleader type coach that Ryan is.

Forget Flaming Thumbtacks, Nashville's tema is now officially the Ten Tits.
