One of the articles was from the New York Post. The others I have just read from various sources. Apparently, I am not the only one who thinks a promotion to Assistant Head coach qualifies. For that matter, assistant GM qualifies as well as GM. If indeed a head coach were dying or sick, I could see litigation over the fact an assistant was hired to take over as head coach eventually. To me this is common sense and in the spirit of the rule against pillaging.
