Sparano, by working under Parcells proved that he can subjugate his ego to Rex, which is a good thing when hiring a former HC to be a Co-od. However he did not bring his guys in from Miami so how he relates to other coaches who knows.
Schotty got stale and the lockeroom and staff needed to be shaken up.
I would have went with Ariens even though he hates Holmes. Both Ben and Sanchez are best out of the pocket on the move.
They had a run game coordinator and a passing game coordinator, but Sparano called the plays during the game. They did not have two guys calling plays.
