That notion is bolstered by the fact that Koetter interviewed and then IMMEDIATELY signed a contract extension to remain a coordinator. If he though he had ANY shot at KC or any other HC job, he wouldn't have done that.
I bet Pioli set it up before Clark castrated him, so Clark honored it out of professional courtesy.
