Another way to look at this is Getting the right staff together makes or breaks the HC. Tomsula has just recently been mentioned as a potential hire for who ever gets Gamble. But for the last few months, Reid, McCoy, Chip Kelly , etc. have anticipated getting offers to be HCs and have been recruiting staff.
By the time we make the GM hire, most of the quality asistants may be gone. Doesn't he Rex this year but what if....
We sign Thurman to a multi-year extension. He stays as DC next year and Tomsula has a year to recruit and build a an offensive staff. So next Black Monday we are already moving on implementing the staff turnover instead of listening to consultants tell us what every other team with a GM opening already knows.
I would love to have Chip Kelly as HC. He gets it on offense.
