From what Clark said in his statement this morning, he has completely and utterly stripped Pioli naked of all of his powers.
Clark is doing this by himself. In his statement after Haley was fired, Clark stated "We are going to go in a new direction". Today he is saying "I am going in a new direction for the answer".
Sounds like he's looking for a new HC to have power much like Shannahan did here and Belichik does in New England.
Many have speculated that Andy Reid is a guy who would be that coach. Mark Donovan, our business operations/communications President, was in Philly with Reid, so the connection is definitely there.
Dirk Koetter is another guy. Clark is meeting with him in Atlanta tomorrow. Apparently Koetter was a guy that John Elway really liked and almost hired over John Fox?
