This feels like the end.Yes it does. Snyder is last to go and then a dawn of a new era happens overnight.

None of these coaches would be "retiring" if it wasn't the end.
Just the opposite, actually. If Snyder was retiring, there would be no need for these other guys to do so. The new coach would bring in his own staff and most of these guys would retire at that point.
I think Hayes and Miller were/are ready to go; I think Snyder thinks he has one more run, and realizes he needs some more youth/energy on his staff. So the feelings are mutual. (Maybe not with Mo, though, who seems to not realize that he can either "retire" or be escorted to the door.)
I think losing Miller, Hayes, and Mo while retaining Snyder, Dimel, and Coleman is literally the perfect scenario. Especially if the replacement for Hayes is Leavitt or Venebles.
See, I'd have to disagree with you. I believe it's Snyder's final gift to "his guys". If Snyder retires then most likely the coaches don't get a nice parachute on the way outn so Snyder is hooking them up before he loses control. I believe he's giving Klein a seat at the table to help him land on any new coaching staff that comes in.
Now, my guess is that if Snyder does not step down or retire within the next week then he's probably on for one more season like most everyone has speculated.
We will just have to wait and see.
Do you think Klein would accept a position for a coach that was about to retire, knowing that he might not be retained by the new coach? I wouldn't do that if I were Klein.
I wonder there was kind of assurance that their status with the program is NOT linked to Coach Snyder being HC (i.e. someone as a HCIW inside Vainer, OR, someone who is as a HC potential that is not currently in Vainer.)
Or maybe he was given a chance to take another step up the coaching ladder and come back to his alma mater and he took it knowing that if Snyder retires there's a chance he stays on with the new coach and worse case he finds a relatively comparable position somewhere else.
