Holmgren needs his people in charge from top to bottom of the organization, what good is bringing in his people who know the 4-3 and WCO if the team is running different systems. This is just typical Lerner fumbling and forces the team to change HC's whether they like it or not.
As for Quinn, he is on even shakier ground if Holmgren brings in a new HC. A WCO QB must complete a very high % of his passes for the WCO to work and so far that has been a huge weakness of Quinn in the team's current run.
Why would he fire Rob Ryan and does he really care that much about the D as long as it's good?
That's just an outdated approach to coaching. He's an offensive coach first, and he's taking the GM role.
Iunno, I think more changes will be done to the offense than the D.
