Perhaps the owner Bill Bidwill had the best intentions when he would hire a new coach every other season but to the fans it seemed like he was just pulling names out of a hat. When Bill Bidwell decided to hand the football operations over to his football savvy son in 2007, the franchise took a positive direction. Bill Bidwill’s son, Michael, has done a good job since taking over for his father. He really got it right when he promoted Steve Keim as the new GM and managed to steal former Coach of the year Bruce Arians away from Indianapolis.
