What has Buckner shown which leads one to believe he could manage a whole defense? If we truly think we have talent, then bring in a legit DC with experience is my routeIf Vance leaves, we are not getting a high profile guy as a DC...most will want HC spots. Fangio is a LONG shot, but the only one I could see as a possibility.
IMO the best move for next year if we are keeping Kliff on a 1 year leash...Give Buckner a shot. I don't want a retread with a questionable record or a dude that just got fired as a DC.
Buckner should at least get an interview.
I think VJ would want his defense implemented regardless of what the DC would want.One thing to consider, back in the day being a head coach was not about being the DC or the OC but whether or not he can lead and manage a team on the field... I think Vance Jospeh might be able to do just that
