Sure it is a risk, but he is dealing with a conglomerate, not a club. If he fails, they will probably just reassign him and thank him for trying. He could always return to NYRB in the future.

In which case, he can probably kiss coaching in Europe goodbye. Being sent back to the US with his tail between his legs.

Well it's to Leipzig not Salzburg. Its risky. I hope he does well, but he isn't going to be making any player acquisition decisions. Also will the locker room really listen to him knowing that he is just a stop gap before Naggelsman arrives next summer? I have feeling his real destination will be to Salzburg in 2019.

Well if it is Leipzig we can consider his interim tenure a success if he qualifies for Europe again, which means top 7.

I would suspect he would also have to advance past the group stages of the Europa League at the very least.
