Again, I think it is a completely different dynamic. The Giants have had success. Success breeds stability. That stability is strengthened by promoting from within the organization. Different people have different influence as time and performance can be measured.
I would guess that when Accorsi and Reese were promoted, they didnt have autonomy, but as time goes by, they do.
But to my point, I am surprised that someone coming from the OUTSIDE would come in with only a 3 or 4 year deal when he does not have autonomy on the coach.
