I'm not pushing Gruden. Just saying I'd prefer him over Cowher.
I'd like a young coach that will be around for a very long time (meaning we will be winning a lot of games). But, how many first time coaches even survive for a few years? For every Jim & John Harbaugh or Sean Payton there are a bunch of Haley's, Josh McDaniels, Steve Spagnuolo, Tony Sporano, or Jack Del Rio.
Maybe the good news is that Clark now has experience of doing this and he will have learned via the process.
He didn't take Oakland to a Super Bowl, he beat them in the super bowl
