They're also extending Caldwell:

Probably the best way to bring Coughlin into the fold at his age. Doug Marrone should benefit from his experience.

I love this role for Tom Coughlin, but my question is: how significantly has Dave Caldwell's power/role been diminished? Seems to me he did a pretty good job of putting talent on that roster.

DMacforHOF still has it.

 

I'm not going to be part of the wine and cheese pseudo intellectual crowd.

We should have seen this coming. It worked when his mentor Parcells did it.

Why did Coughlin's tenure as HC cut short in Jacksonville? Wasn't it underachieving players with massive contracts that kind of hog-tied the team and their options? And now... that's going to be part of his job again? I like and respect TC, but I don't know about this.

That being said the Jags still have Marrone and Caldwell in place. I'm not really even sure what Coughlin's job title entails but he knows how to run a team as a head coach. He knows what it takes to win and his experience should really benefit Marrone in that regard. I'm not sure how much of a role he'll have in the decision making process as far as drafting players and signing guys to contracts. Seems to me like it will be a group effort and maybe that will work.
