    Didn't really help that Parcells replaced him and the Giants won two championships for the first time in
    a few decades.

    Ray Goff was handpicked as Vince Dooley's successor and was fired after six seasons -- won nine games twice but otherwise was mediocre. Got out of coaching and never looked back. Owns a bunch of Zaxby's, I believe.

    Interesting story about Billick. The Dolphins went 1-15 in 2007, shortly before Wayne Huizenga sold the team to Stephen Ross. The win was against the Ravens, who lost thanks largely to a questionable play call by Billick. When the Dolphins won, Huizenga upped the sale price. When the job opened again after Tony Sparano was fired in 2011, the word was that Billick was interested and called Ross, who supposedly responded, "You're the guy who cost me $40 million when I bought the team." No forgiving or forgetting.

    Perkins lost both teams because of his abrasive style.
    The Giants were a veteran team that needed quarterback stability, not a kick in the ass.
    The Bucs needed a kick in the ass but they didn't need three-a-days that had the team's legs wiped out by November.
