The NFL is a little different than big business, but you are right in that one guy will make the decision.
Sorry. I misunderstood. I'm OK with giving either of them final say over personnel, it just depends on who they are. If Clark wants a veteran coach (like Cowher), I'm more comfortable with the idea of hiring a GM who will serve the decision-making coach. If he's more inclined to get a first-time coach, I'm more inclined to prefer a GM who makes the decisions with input from the coach.
