WTF does this guy have any say in how our football program is run? Maybe he is the problem. It is absolutely ludicrous that this chump has an active role in managing our football program. He has zero qualification for this. None.
The al groh article posted earlier prompts this.
The board of directors brought a list of changes and corrections they would like to see to Lombardi after his first scrimmage at Green Bay while he was sitting in the stands watching practice. Lombardi promptly balled up the piece of paper and threw it at whoever delivered it and yelled,"I'll coach the g#$ d@$# team." You don't hear to many stories like that playing out today.
He may not be qualified, but he has an interesting record.
I've only been saying this ever since the massacre of our football staff.
Oliver is a basketball guy and his record there isn't spectacular either. He needs to let London run the football program and if London fails, fire him. His meddling and ham-handed, clumsy firing of the assistants has turned a foothill into a mountain.
Pure & simple, he has a say because Littlepage allows him to have a say. Additionally, London apparently doesn't have enough equity/clout built up to be able to tell him to go f-himself.... or maybe he welcomes the help/input. i don't think we can write-off Oliver's potential contributions without knowing a lot more about the inner workings of the program than ANY of us do.
All I ask is if the football team fails, then he's accountable and out the door too (maybe Littlepage also for allowing it). When you have direct say in how the football program operates, then you need direct responsibility as well. Without accountability, you have a faulty organization destined to fail. Naturally, if we succeed (which I surely hope we do), then he deserves some of the praise too.

A semi sophisticated robot can handle all of the responsibilities apart from scheduling.
But that doesn't matter. What does matter is why on earth he has ANY input in the structure of the coaching staff as al groh so clearly discusses. We pay our head coaches MILLIONS of dollars to handle this.
Jon Oliver is a chump.
