I may be wrong, but I'd assume Pioli would want to get rid of Herm and go after a HC or D-coordinator that he is on the same page with. Essentially, one that is familiar with the 3-4, since that is what Pioli is most familiar with in terms of scouting. Herm Edwards is a Tony Dungy disciple and runs a Tampa-2 Defense in KC, as he did with the New York Jets. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Tampa-2 is almost the polar opposite of the 3-4 when it comes to the front 7. It's rare to see guys who could play well in both systems, no? In New York, the Jets witnessed a rocky transition from the Tampa-2 to the 3-4. In the process, a lot of talented players - like Vilma - had to leave. In addition, the Jets had to spend large sums of money to get guys to fit the system. Basically, what changes might have to be made to KCs front 7 if they want to adapt to the 3-4. Can a guy like Dorsey adapt to being a 34 NT? Is Scott going to have to scrap some good talent in order to make the switch?
