If we have a losing season again it is almost a guarantee that the new owner will want a new coach, but what if that coach is already on staff? Since we have at least shown signs of life again not being basement dwellers, my question is can this possibility be realistic?
If EJ stays healthy and makes stride of leading games and somehow we still fall short of the playoffs, is it possible that Schwartz could take over as HC? If that happens, knowing Marrone and Hackett would probably get back to College ranks, does anyone else think we should attempt to keep Marrone as OL coach and Hackett a possibility of being a QB coach(obviously a new OC would have to be extremely lenient)? It would be on Schwartz to find a capable OC to go with this plan. If EJ plays like he can be a franchise QB, I'd hate for a new learning curve without some comfortability in his game. I think the Alex Smith situation showed that constant turnover of coaches minimizes the possible efficiency.
I understand that takes a lot of trust in Schwartz that the players and Marrone/Hackett would fully fall into what Schwartz would see as a plan, but I can't see anyone that is on this team or Marrone or Hackett not get it. I like Marrone and I would like for once that if we get a new coach it isn't a 3 yr plan as usual.
Hopefully we play to our ability and this is a moot point, but just a random thought.
