A Short History of Brian Billick's Job Security

(Jonathan Newton - TWP).

Dec. 10: "I'm going to be back," he said when addressing the future of the team.

Dec. 12: Balt Sun: Any uncertainty surrounding Billick's job status was cleared up recently when he was notified by owner Steve Bisciotti that he would return for a 10th season, a source with intimate knowledge of the Ravens' decision-making told The Sun last night.

"Brian is coming back," the source said.

Dec. 13: Annapolis Capital: Brian Billick has survived a dismal season and will remain the Baltimore Ravens' coach next season, according to All-Pro offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden.

Ogden related that Billick, who signed a four-year contract after last season worth $5 million annually, has already told the players that he has been given assurances from owner Steve Bisciotti that he will be back.

"It's not really a surprise," Ogden said. "Brian said he's going to be back, and he didn't make a big deal out of it. You can't just fire a coach. You've got to have some plan for what you're going to do, who you're going to bring in."

Today: Um, forget all that. "I just changed my mind," owner Steve Bisciotti told the Sun.

If your job can be your credit, surely you can change your mind about a coach and his livelihood.
