That's what he wants.
You hire a head coach first, and as soon as that coach is done or gets bored or the team starts tuning him out, you start over.
I think that's what he's struggling with right now, because firing Pioli four years in goes totally against his vision. Yet you cannot deny the ineptitude that is out there on the field thanks to Pioli.
But at the end of the day, I don't care how good your front office is, if you don't have a legit head coach, forget about it...
This concerns me more than anything...that his desire for stability is stronger than his desire to win. Winning creates stability...not the other way around. I'm not sure Clark is sold on that.
