Assistant before coach?

I’ve seen lots of talk here about assistant coach hires and retention. This includes names currently with the program and some not. While it makes sense to retain some continuity for recruiting, etc., are we putting the cart before the horse?

Among names I’ve seen mentioned are Jason Phillips, various current assistants and David Klinger (who I don’t think has any coaching experience).

Most of us didn’t know who Todd Orlando was before Herman hired him. So yeah, we shouldn’t worry too much about that. We should look for the best head coach who has a good plan for the assistants.
