There was a great article on The Athletic about how "power coaches" usually fail to adapt to the NFL, where they have stakeholders holding them accountable, versus at a college campus where the coach has free reign.

The woman and Urban situation is between urban and his family - poor judgement no doubt, but that's their issue.

Being a head coach of a 0-4 team and not riding back to Jacksonville on the team jet and independently deciding to stay in Ohio away from the team - that's poor leadership. According to execs and players from other organizations, players are routinely denied the ability to "stay behind for family," after away games, and usually have to get their own jet when they land at HQ.

I doubt he lasts the season. He's got ego and other issues, and pros don't give a Pf about him.

It would be surprising if he lasts past weeks 12-15

Week 5-6? They have been talking how to ditch him since this broke.

He sucks as a coach in the big leagues as already pointed out because dictators just can't make it work. You are working with the elite of elite players (even on the worst of teams) and they are no longer naive college kids you can dictate too.

For one thing, most of them make more than the coach.

The president paid illegal hush money to a porn star he boned without a condom while his wife was home nursing his newborn baby....no big deal.

A sportsball coach gets a lapdance... WHAT HAPPENED TO MORALITY!?

Yeah... I don't see what the big deal is. This is between him and his wife. Doesn't concern me.

Exactly. If he has a cool wife she wouldn't even care.

Morality has nothing to do with it. He's a loose cannon who hasn't proven anything in the Pros. He's a dbag.

Maybe. But I would have danced with her too. That's what you do at a bar. You drink you dance you have fun. My wife would have been impressed. Maybe even a little jealous but hey that's good for her ( and me later).

You can admire the paintings on the wall in the art gallery just don't take them off the wall and and take them home with you.
