"Agree to part ways"
In other words, Pioli was fired but didn't want the embarassment of being fired after the success he had in New England
Looks like Reid is going to accept the position now...
If he's asking for full control and this doesn't work out, will his reputation be ruined? That's the question I would like to ask because I'm thinking it's going to take a while for him to get the QB he wants?
