Anyone missing at the HC level?
And what about lower levels?
[And, come to think of it, why is Belichick's tree not usually seen as a derivative of Parcells' tree? Is it b/c Parcells has yet to win a SB without Belichick?]
I don't count Groh as BB's, he was DC for Parcells when BP brought BB in to coach under Groh and teach him how to be a DC. Swartz the DC for Tennessee will extend the coaching tree some day.
You can't do a proper BB tree without doing personnel guys: Pioli, Phil Savage, Ozzie Newsome, Tannenbaum (Asst GM for the Jets), I think Litst(sp?) with the Eagles started out under BB too.
It seems to me that BB has a coaching tree the same way Walsh and Lombardi have coaching trees, they dominated. Parcells and Gibbs win, but they don't seem to develop coaches the way Walsh and BB do/did.
