Bill Ford Jr has slowly been more involved with these decisions. He was the one who came out and said Millen should be fired before his Father did it 3 days later and my belief is that they will be much quicker to pull the trigger on clearing house if there is not a turnaround.
The difference between Millen and now is the Fords have seen first hand the damage that was done by allowing Millen to keep his job for so long. They were legitimately embarrassed with the 0-16 season and I think they are smart enough to learn from their mistakes.
I would be absolutely shocked if they let this front office and coaching staff hold their jobs if there is not a significant turnaround next year. Including the off the field issues as well which is a whole other issue (that they also weren't dealing with when Millen was GM).
