He's been a scout and player personnel director so he's not just a bean counter like Mikey T, he might want to use this "opportunity" as a springboard to making a name for himself in the biggest media market.
Give me young football blood not the retreads like Polian or gasp Bill Parcells.
DeCosta is the heir to the Balt GM spot. plus, evev if he wanted to give up a guaranteed 10-15 years of job security to come here, he was part of the brain trust who didnt trust Rex to replace Billick, instead choosing Harbaugh.
