Yeah, we could sign him to a 10 year contract....if he'll sign it.
The coordinator position is a stepping stone position...some people have to fail or have less success as head coaches in order to figure out their terminal position is OC or DC....like Wade Phillips did.
Few coordinators if any will sign long term contracts if they still believe they can be a head coach somewhere.....not to mention I'm sure all contracts have clauses that allow the coordinator to leave if he's offered a HC job.
