Yup, Phillips is as demonstrative as they come.
You don't hire the next hot coordinator because you like the schemes he runs. You hire him because you think he can organize and inspire. Phillips is just the pitch perfect example of the guy that can scheme a defense with the best of them.
And can't be a HC for shit.
Norv Turner springs to mind on the offensive side of the ball.
It's much much harder than people think to find a good HC. That's why guys like King are just so foolish to me. Cowher is unquestionably a good head coach and has proven it several times over. Is he going to revolutionize the way the QB position is played? Nope - and that's not his job.
You hire a leader and organizer as your HC, then you go get a guy that can scheme the shit out of things as your OC.
The two skill sets aren't terribly related.
