Dan is great and is doing well so far. I just want to say that being a coach you have a certain skill set that lends itself to this game. He has to motivate, encourage, and support his team all the way. He has to strategize his defense and offense based on the teams they play. I don't think anyone else has that set of skills and in some respects he has an unfair advantage.
Topped off with a great personality he should go all the way to the end, but it is going to get tough when it is down to four. The rest of the game could be luck.
