What do you think the team needs to do to lock him up, at least for a couple more years?
The only way to lock him up is to make him Head coach, and or pay him as much as anyone else would at HC with a CO HC title.
He has done a fantastic job for us , and I'd hate to see him leave. The 7th DC in 7 years! We seem unable to keep one , either due to failure, or success.
We have to hope that he has been soured on that type of job for a while and he is satisfied to be where he's at for now. It would be great if he thought that his best role is as a DC, on a team that has a good owner, coach and GM. A super bowl run or two under his belt would also give him even more leverage with other teams, should he want the HC gig.
