My confidence in Beamer has waxed and waned since rumors of him being considered for the job first surfaced. I was initially opposed to it for the reasons most would cite...inexperience...then I put my thinking cap on and I gradually warmed up to it. By the time he was hired, I was staunchly pro-Beamer. That confidence took a major hit when it was revealed he'd be retaining 4 coaches from a failed staff. Having watched Shane's comments in full from his his Monday presser, I am, once again, fully confident in Beamer. He came across as a man who's fully in charge of the situation. He can't control what other people choose to do, whether they decided to leave or stay, but he did not come across in any way as someone who was caught flat-footed by any of the unexpected personnel departures. Nor did he come across in any way as someone who was just flying by the seat of his pants. For never having been a head coach, I'm very impressed so far. He does not appear the least bit flummoxed or frustrated or at a loss for what to do. Nor did he just lay down a bunch of typical coaching platitudes. It's just a presser, but it gave me confidence that he knows what he's doing.
