Well I hope ET is right, but I don't think just because Cal fired Bob means he's ready to give this team a REAL identity and culture by making smart hires. But I admit, my fear is comes from a lot of media saying that Easterby has Cal's ear and will influence who's chosen as the next GM and coach.
There is this biased article from a Boston sports journal written about him after he left. They sound really jaded but it's always better to hear glowing reviews when someone leaves a team right? https://www.bostonsportsjournal.com/2019/06/18/bedard-patriots-burning-mad-jack-easterby-texans/
