ESPN analyst Ivan Maisel examines what it means for a coach to be a "good fit." You can run the spread, the I, the triple-option, but unless your coach is winning, you're probably thinking he's not a good fit.

Maisel profiles Rich Rodriguez in the article, and also discusses when new coaches break tradition.

"There's a difference between tradition and best practice," Rodriguez said. "Tradition is the fight song and the winged helmets. It's not style of play or how you pick captains...

"When I interviewed for the job, they didn't ask, 'How are you going to pick game captains?' They said, 'We want you to be successful on and off the field.'"

Maisel added: "And, probably, in that order. The Wolverines are 2-0. Perhaps it is that simple. In the end, winning is one size that fits all."
