This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

Not necessarily. by rockmcd
You can do all the contingency planning in the world, and tell all the good coaches in the country that you'd like to hire them the next time to job opens. But none of them can make any substantive promises that they'll sign on the dotted line when that day comes. The only thing they can really promise is that they'll give it serious consideration and won't let contractual obligations at their current job get in the way.
Jack will never disclose the extent of contingency planning he has done. If the first guy he offers the job to says "no", then a lot of people will claim it as proof that he didn't plan ahead, but that just isn't necessarily the case.
