All hires are critical. I don't think this one is any more or less critical than the Groce hire was. And I don't think it is more or less critical than the one that will take place in 4 years if Whitman makes a mistake or 20 years if he hires a game-change.And as far as what constitutes a "good hire" it is a a bad, actually the wrong argument. Making a change is a totally different argument, but let's not confuse that with what would constitute a "good hire." The next coaching hire is extremely critical.
I really think we're in a bad place right now. I don't think a couple more years of bad results will put us in any worse of a position. In other words, IMO, we've hit rock-bottom. It's really a matter of how long we stay there.
