I think you just hire a GM that isn't a ****ing pile of mother****ing **** juice mixed with runny dog shit and firmed up with puss from a festering rat plague boil.
If you get a GM that isn't an egomaniac control freak and understands the importance of a good coach and doesn't just try to execute some dumbass system where he tries to be the smartest guy in the room, they should get along OK. Are there any other cases where a coach is forced on a GM?
It takes a certain kind of person to be an NFL head coach or NFL GM. I think they are INHERENTLY egomaniacs.
It's purely Machiavellian - absolute power corrupts absolutely.
You could bring in anybody you want but the minute you give him complete control, things get skewed. Maybe not to Pioli levels but they still get skewed.
The coach and GM HAVE to at least be peers or it is ultimately doomed to fail.
