And he also had the plan in place.. He did not purposely drop the HC job and leave us in ruins..
The plan from the day he was hired is he would be coach with BB being assistant HC... and when he left the franchise he would leave it in the capable hands of Bill Belichick to take over...
Who know BB would only be head coach for one day??
He said he would coach for 3 years and did.. But his disdain for rookie QB's most likely cost us Manning when he wouldn't guarantee that he would take him if he came out with the first pick in the draft..
