These comments are about Andy Reid. If Tomlin got this message and practiced it the Steelers would be great again. "Joe Banner, the Eagles' president who hired Reid as head coach in 1999, said the most impressive thing about Reid in the interview process, and one of reasons he got the job, was the meticulous list of prospective assistant coaches he wanted to hire for Eagles staff." "He had a list of all of these coaches he had met and notes about them and even ordered them, like it was a draft board," Banner said. "That tells you how much he appreciates surrounding himself with good people. He was looking for the best people as opposed to some coaches out there who are conscious of hiring people who aren't threats. "Andy realizes he can't be successful unless he's surrounded by people that actually make you better. He also realizes the better he makes those people, the better he is. Investing in the time it took to properly evaluate coaches and in trying to develop them were something he prioritized. When you do that and teach as well as he does, you're going to have a lot of good coaches working for you."
