Lots of folk are making comparisons to the Murray appointment, so I went back and dug out what JR said at the time.
Talk of budget insinuated at the time he wanted promotion with Muzza at the helm, but Muzza has said in recent interviews/podcasts he got nothing anywhere near what Evans and Flitcroft have been gifted.
It will be interesting to hear JD's presser tomorrow, and who will be making statements on behalf of the club/JR and comparing the two.
The former captain and assistant manager has been confirmed as the replacement for Paul Cox, after impressing during his time in caretaker charge.
And chairman John Radford has been very clear about what he expects from the new man - promotion to the Championship.
The Stags sit 18th in League Two, seven points above the relegation zone.
Radford says a play-off push should not be ruled out, and is prepared to put his hands in his pockets to assist with that when the transfer window opens.
"He knows he's got money available, so it's a case of Adam now getting on with it," the chairman told the Post.
"I'm going to let him make all those decisions.
"I'm sure we'll have a chat if he comes too much over budget, but he's got plenty of room to manoeuvre."
When asked if some players will have to leave to help balance the books, Radford added: "I'm one for a squad being a squad and gelling as a team.
"There's no need to panic. The last few games we've seen them play, they have gelled and played well, so there's no need for massive movement at all.
"The season is not over for us.
"We've got to get at least 1.8 points per game now to have a chance of getting back into the play-offs.
"It is doable, we'll see how the next few games go.
"I certainly think he can consolidate us and keep us in this league.
"I would like us to have a go at trying to get to the play-offs."
The long-term goal though, is much more ambitious.
"I want to be in the Championship," continued Radford.
"That's my target for Adam - to get into the Championship, hopefully in three or four seasons.
"Hopefully he can do that and he'll get my backing to do that."
Murray was one of seven candidates interviewed for the post, and clinched the job with a unanimous vote from the board of directors.
In his three games since taking temporary control, he has beaten Plymouth in the league and secured passage in the FA Cup by toppling Concord Rangers.
His next task is to earn a place in the third round of that competition, at Cambridge United today.
At 33, Murray has become the youngest boss in the Football League on an initial deal until the end of the season.
But he was still the standout candidate for the job.
"We interviewed six managers prior to him and they were all very similar," said Radford.
"The first one came in and the other five were a carbon copy of him.
"Adam was totally different.
"I think that's because he hasn't been a manager before and the rest knew the process.
"Some of the new ideas Adam was coming out with impressed us, and his enthusiasm impressed us.
"You look at the pros and cons.
"Probably the biggest con against Adam would be the fact he's got no experience as a manager, and if we were to bring an ex-England player or Premiership player to the club as manager, that would be a big name.
"But this was an opportunity to give one of our own a chance to get into management."
