If the Bucs were to lose Bowles to a head coaching position (or better yet somehow Leftwich), there’s a not too shabby consolation prize that could include a 2021 and 2022 3rd round compensational pick, thanks to a new rule created last year. The rule awards comp picks to teams when their minority coaches and front office personnel are hired away to larger positions:
Bowles has been getting a lot of interviews for head coaching gigs. Trouble is, he’s already failed once, so you have to wonder if teams are actually wanting to give him a shot or just trying to comply with the Rooney Rule.
Please stop with the Rooney rule insults. These teams have all satisfied that clause multiple times over. Bieniemy had 5 interviews in the first week of January. The Eagles gave Duce Staley a HC interview right out of the box.
Not sure how I feel about the new compensatory pick compensation for coaches and front office hires. Not sure the league needs more “rich get richer” incentives. Compensating for lost free agent players given the hard cap makes some sense.
It’s a terrible rule for the NFL. In most cases, coaches that are being poached are not coming from terrible teams. They are getting looks because their teams are succeeding, and not in need of more picks.
