He doesn't want to screw up next year by getting all the players excited about change - it's the same craziness that led to Romeo Crennel being hired as head coach.
There's NO REASON to make changes now. NONE, NADA, ZILCH
I'm not trying to start a war, but I think if you fire Pioli, it gives you more time to court your next GM. Maybe he's already doing that. Is it like coaches where you can't talk until after the season? Either way, there's no reason to keep Pioli if it inhibits you in any way from getting your guy.
I said long ago that if it were me, I'd have fired his ass around week 6, told Donovan to give Bowe whatever the **** he wants, and went out and found my guy.
But maybe since there is two weeks left, there isn't anything to gain from doing it now.

I'm with Dirk. Keep Cowher the **** out of KC. And Cowher as GM? Does he even know anything about being a GM?
And why the **** are we talking about finding a coach first? Hire a good GM, let him hire the coach. There has to be some cohesiveness there. They have to be able to find synergy between personnel decisions and scheme. It just has to be that way. Find the right GM, he'll find the right coach.
