McCarthy's done it all, from college to positional coaching to coordinator to head coach. His record was certainly better than "average". The Harbaughs come from a coaching lineage and I don't think anything about Jim or John screams "average".
I know what you're saying. My point is that we often obsess about coaches/coordinators from Super Bowl teams or dynasties, or retreads. Harbaugh was a special teams coach. McCarthy was coordinator for two pretty average offenses in SF/New Orleans. You don't have to coach an all-world offense or defense to be a very good head coach. These days, I think it's a hell of a lot more about your ability to motivate, teach, and discipline players than it is about X's and O's.
