"It is a pretty mixed bag of emotions around here in regards to Caldwell. I personally feel like this was a great hire, and it hard to understand why there would be skeptics. Caldwell fits all criteria the organization was looking for when the vacancy opened: an offensive-minded coach that has worked a lot with quarterbacks and also has head coaching experience. Time, as always, will tell about how successful he will be, but it is initially an excellent hire."
