Excellent. You have to figure, unless they are historic next year or something, that he was painfully average enough as a head coach that he'll be here for a while.

I find this hard to believe. As of 7:04 MST, it is not on Wikipedia.

After his teammates had been taking swings at the wood with the axe, Punter Chris Hanson followed suit and ended up seriously wounding his non-kicking foot. Hanson missed the remainder of the 2003 season, being replaced by Mark Royals.


So JDR spent 2002 under John Fox in Carolina as their DC as well. How was that team?
