I guess the Patriot way is non-transferable. 

Belichick has such an in-depth knowledge of the game, his insane level of attention to detail, plus a few other nuances that are uniquely him make it all but impossible to try and replicate. 

His assistants always seem to try and bring the all business, no nonsense, hardline approach that is synonymous with BB. But they fail to earn their player’s respect first. So many of them seem to carry with them an arrogance and act as if the players are privileged to be coached by someone who studied under Belichick. 

Brian Flores seems to be doing it right down in Miami.

The Lions have a big name in mind for their GM vacancy: Seahawks General Manager John Schneider. Detroit plans to pursue Schneider, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

If Schneider had full authority over the Seahawks’ personnel, the Lions wouldn’t be allowed to approach him about their job opening. But because Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll has primary personnel authority, the Lions would be offering Schneider a step up with final say over their roster. That allows them to approach Schneider within league rules, and it may be enough to make Schneider consider leaving Seattle.

It'd certainly be a huge risk for Schneider to take that leap.  It hasn't worked out in other similar situations, most recently and notably when John Dorsey left Andy Reid to go to Cleveland or even when Pioli left Belichick for KC.  When you have a partnership that works, it's generally better to stay with it.

I’ve never worried much about Paton leaving, but if he’s given a situation to his liking (full roster control, hiring a coach of his choosing), this would be the offseason I could see him leaving.

I know nothing about Mr. Holmes, but he's been with the Rams for 18 years, so he's a front office version of Stefanski, so I wish him well...just not when they play the Vikings.

Part of a new NFL rule, the Rams will receive a compensatory 3rd round pick this year and next for losing a minority staff member to a HC or GM role.
