If we finish the season strong MU will face the same dilemma that BC had to deal with while Smitch was here. As a GM it's very difficult to explain why you won't extend a coach who took a team that was soft with no D, developed young players, improved the D etc...and brought them to the playoffs (regardless of the outcome). This is a good progress. I assume that if we finish strong a short extension will follow. He may not be a top coach in the league but we could have done much worse than DC. If we finish 41-41 it is still a very good progress compare to the last 2-3 years. If we finish anything better than this, itís a bonus.
