I'm a huge fan of Ventura as a player and a person, but if we're going to reload/rebuild, we need a guy who has a track record of working with younger players as our manager.
The other question is what Don Cooper may do. He may not want to sit through a rebuilding period or go back to a more traditional coaching role if we hire an experienced manager. But he's a huge asset to the club, and would be super-difficult to replace.
This will be as tricky to handle for Rick Hahn as getting the best talent possible in salary-cutting deals.
