This always happens because the head coaches jump right into the NFL without having been a defensive or offensive coordinator prior to becoming an NFL head coach. Most coaches in the NFL in the last 40 years were coordinators before they were head coaches. Jimmy Johnson was able to do it because of the dynamic players that Dallas had on offense during that era and a solid defense. Jim Harbaugh, who like Johnson also made the transition from college to the NFL without being a coordinator has been doing a remarkable job in SF.
