I think that's his point, it isn't about what he did before SD.
Bellicheck is a good example, as are most coaches who are good. They find a place that fits and they ride it out.
Take Marvin Lewis for a future example, he hasn't been the best in Cincy, but after he leaves I could see him eventually being a head coach somewhere else and having success. and people won't be saying, "man why did we hire him? he is going to make our defense sooo bad."
regardless if I agree about Norv I think people often overlook what matters and buy into things that don't.
