Run It Once pro quality slipping?

This probably qualifies as a 'gossip' post, but i was wondering about the process that RIO uses to evaluate their current and potential coaches. I know that you require an audition video of sorts, but is there any scrutiny places on their past and current results? Are team pros evaluated by people playing in their games? The reason i ask is because i'm noticing more coaches being hired whom I've never heard of and i would hate for RIO to lose perspective and start going the way of every poker training site (By that i mean that RIO starts to worry more about quantity over quality.) Given the increasingly competitive poker environment in 2016, there's no guarantee that team pros with a high level of past success are currently doing well in their games. What's more, if they aren't doing well in the games it becomes even more appealing to produce additional videos (of lower quality since they aren't ahead of the curve anymore) and lock in a guaranteed income all the while becoming complacent in their ability to beat the games. I believe that it also makes sense to make team pro results public. Volume and winrate graphs should be posted every 6 months by each coach and that should be available in their coaching bio. Exact monetary figures can be kept private, but if coaches are resistant to this it's probably a decent indication of their current place in the games. I think this would also rectify the difficulty that members have in assessing the quality of the pros. It's so easy to just watch videos and trust that the video makers know what they're doing, but not having any proof. I'd be interested to hear your input on this.
