He was in a bad situation w/Bernie, etc as Bernie was Manning-like in the specific sense he wanted/demanded control of the offense. The Trestman Browns were actually pretty good offensively. I have no idea why he fell off the NFL map but he was also very young when he was here and maybe he didn't play nice with others.
Not sure he's head coaching material but not sure he's not.
He's been a pretty damn good coach in the CFL. Not sure how much that means, but it is successful head coaching experience.
I actually wouldn't mind that hire at all.
The Canadian pitch is wider with deeper endzones, so isn't it like playing on grass vs. clay in tennis? One game is spread out for the slow guys (clay/CFL), the other is speed and more speed (grass/NFL). Not sure how that would translate.
Tho at least he does have to work with a limited roster...which give him a management skill college coaches don't possess.
