I’ve got no issue with him being offered a job as a quarterbacks coach, I’d humph a bit at him not having any college coaching experience, but I could live with it, then doing offensive Co-ordinator somewhere, then polishing his resume for a head coaching interview.
But to be already being offered head coaching jobs off the back of him being a nice guy/team mate, having a head for football (whatever the fuck that means) and having been a journeyman qb in the league, does a disservice to every black coach whose had to grind in the league and has hit the ceiling of defensive co-ordinator. And even if they do get a head coaching job, they get a year or two on a team that’s 3 yrs away from being good, get them moving in the right direction. Get fired because they’re never given as much time as their white counterparts and never get another chance at the big chair, unlike their white counterparts. See Brian Flores, steve Wilkes, Raheem Morris, Todd Bowles, etc
And the thing is mccown could be a great coach, the second coming of bill Walsh, or belichick but it would still be fucking premature and racist.
I also point you to the flack that the steelers got for hiring Tomlin, and the grief he got for his lack of experience, until the steelers won a super bowl, and he like his three predecessors, kept the steelers relevant and competitive year after year. So much so, no one ever brings up the circumstances of his hiring in anything other than a positive light.
