I can't justify it like that. He was a ****ty coach. He should have been fired. Period. Was Philbin not available that year? Let's say that was the case, or that they didn't want to bring a coach in with the shortened offseason (which is also nonsense, considering Harbaugh didn't seem to have a problem implementing his system in that time); that's basically saying "we're going to accept one more ****ty year with a ****ty coach so we can get our guy next year." If that's the case, why not truly tank the season and grab Andrew Luck?
That being said, I don't think that's the approach they took. I think they just made a stupid mistake in keeping Sparano a year too long.
I can agree with that. If Philbin does well, it'll ease the pain... Better justification? lol
