Nice column in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution by Furman Bisher, who probably was writing sports columns when Sherman burned Atlanta, on Coach Whiz, focusing on his days at Georgia Tech.

Based on this quote I think Whiz believes his future as a HC will start in Pitsburgh:

He had his chance to move into head coaching last winter when the Oakland Raiders came knocking. ?I had a talk with Al, Mr. Davis,? he said, representing his gentlemanly upbringing. ?I was honored, but it wasn?t the time and the place for me. I like it in Pittsburgh, where things are done the right way.?

I just hope he doesn't pack his things up and leave if it doesn't work out that way.

But I also hope that the Rooney's will bring in someone who will recognize that talented assistants he has and not break up the nucleus of coaches that are established here.
