History questions

Post  Big_Pete on Wed Sep 26, 2012 5:46 pm

Hi

I am wondering if some can assist.

I am looking into who were the other candidates when we hired Jim Fassell in 97 and earlier Dan Reeves

A little research came up with this bit on Fassel.
Accorsi said that was because he was sensitive to his credibility with other executives around the league. He did not hire Fassel; the previous general manager, George Young, did. And Accorsi, who worked under Young before replacing him, had recommended that Young hire Nick Saban, then the coach at Michigan State.

“George was impressed with Saban; we went and interviewed him,” Accorsi said. “I didn’t know Jim. I never had a problem with him. Was he my choice? No. Would he have been my choice? Probably not. But I thought we cooperated.”

This is a good question Pete and glad we did not end up with Nick Saban

I'm just looking into things like draft philosophy etc.

I really don't like Accorsi/Fassel's track record, but I will show you more when my piece is finished.
