Yup. It's pretty demeaning when your head coach asks to call his own plays, and the GM bullheadedly hires two strong-minded offensive coordinators who would control the entire offensive system. In year 1, Pioli didn't give Haley nearly enough help. In year 2, he gave him way more help than Haley wanted. In year 3... I still believe that the Muir hiring validates Gretz's point that Pioli was trying to sabotage Haley to give him an excuse to be fired.
