Wouldn't they be the same? Improvement is improvement. 

One is improvement from coaching while the other can be more attributed to the players around him and the system he is playing in.

@Forge et al,

Just hoping for a bit more perspective that I can pass along to the folks that still pop up in my Twitter feed from when I was a Chargers blogger, asking questions about them still.  With Saleh going and taking Mike LaFleur with him, is the presumption that Kyle will slap the OC designation on Mike McDaniel (who has been with him for-like-ever) in order to keep from losing both in the same offseason, or would he be amenable to letting him go if it was to a gig where MM got play-calling responsibilities?

I mostly ask because Albert Breer, in a recent article, listed Brandon Staley as a potential name to watch for as Chargers future HC and that he (Breer) would expect him to bring along McDaniel, even though I can see no discernible coaching tree branch or Rolodex tie between the two of them, other than the fact that they coached in the same division for HC's that, themselves, used to staff together.

Any insight is appreciated.

McDaniel is getting a raise and a promotion in terms of position title but highly doubt he calls plays. Shanahan already addressed this late in the season saying he sees no reason why he would stop calling plays.

So McDaniel can still interview elsewhere and take another job if given play calling duties.

Yes, Kyle has said in the past that he would let guys go if they were receiving a "true" promotion, ie if they were able to call plays and be the guy in complete control of the offense
