Levy: Coaches are often fired too quickly

Posted by Chris Brown on January 30, 2015 – 10:04 am

Bills Hall of Fame coach Marv Levy lent his expertise on the success of second-time NFL head coaches in our feature story on today (Friday). He also expressed a few opinions on how quick some NFL owners are to pull the trigger in making a coaching change.

“You look at the two head coaches who are in the Super Bowl now,” Levy told “Pete Carroll was fired in New England and Bill Belichick was fired in Cleveland. I was fired in Kansas City and I was on George Allen’s staff and he had been fired with the Rams and was hired by the Redskins and two years later we were in the Super Bowl. There are more examples that I could mention.

“I think that there is a give in to media and public clamor about getting rid of a coach. I think the Bears did that with Marc Trestman. I think if they stayed with him he’d be a good coach.”
