Taking the helm of the Pittsburgh Steelers
in my mind this article shows how the steelers may have the best of both worlds and a perfect blend of the 2 previous coaching styles.

Re: Taking the helm of the Pittsburgh Steelers
Noll cleaned out his locker room of players who could not play, but he also got rid of one of his best to make a point to the rest of his team. Wide receiver Roy Jefferson had made the Pro Bowls after the 1968 and '69 seasons, yet Noll traded him before the '70 season to Baltimore.
"Roy was an excellent player. He was just going to test Chuck," Hoak said. "Chuck was going to run the show and he wasn't going to take it from any of the players."
Cowher did something similar. Brentson Buckner wasn't a Pro Bowl player, but he was a good, young defensive lineman for the Steelers of the mid-1990s. He tested Cowher, and Cowher traded him.
i wonder if something similiar happend with okolbi....
