Another very simple perspective that so many on here don't have.
Everybody wants a name coach, the coach who has had success, but they forget that ALL coaches, no matter WHO they are, went through ups and downs. All coaches had to "learn" to become very good coaches. Some took years to finally get a ring.
But every fan wants the next guy, then the next guy is here, and he's crap in 3 years, on to the next guy.
Obviously, a Rich Kotite type of coach will expose himself right away.
In Ryan, the team has had success, his mantra works, especially on defense. His teams play hard for him, he's an emotional coach that gets it on a lot of levels. And yes, of course, he DOES have to learn, and improve in areas.
Name for me ONE coach in the history of football that didn't have to do this to become good or great, or who didn't go through ups and downs?
