Applewhite hired Johnson. If Johnson was demoted twice from calling plays then why the hell did he get this job? Donoforio’s prevent defense does not impress me
2 of most important factors in head coach success
- Only as good as your QB
- Only as good as your assistant coaches
2008-2011 Sumlin hired the right OC’s and had Keenum at QB that carried us.
2012-2014 Levine failed by hiring a dissaster at OC to go along with another dissaster at QB. But Levine hired a good DC in Gibbs that laid foundation for future defenses with Jack Boyz!
2015-2016 Herman hit the jackpot on his hires, especially Orlando who took what Gibbs built and made it better. Herman benefited greatly from having Greg Ward Jr. and he made Applewhite look good.
2017- Applewhite hired a just ok DC and a horrible OC, and our feature QB in Allen was a flop.
“There’s two kinds of coaches,” Bum Phillips once said. “Them that’s fired and them that’s gonna be fired.”
