Good for Mike Tice.
I’m glad to see Jack Del Rio hired Tice to be an assistant head coach for the Jaguars. While the Vikings were entirely justified in firing him–he had his three years to prove himself–it would nevertheless have been interesting to see what he could have done under new and more generous ownership.
Tice is a good coach and the Jags got a bargain. I liked him; so I’m happy for him. But he’d have made me much happier if he’d have taken to the NFL broadcast booth. He was entertaining in large part because he was so wonderfully and brutally honest.
