Daily News source isn’t 100 percent correct Dan Leberfeld
The Daily News quoted a league source today about the Jets’ coach/GM situation.
“I think there is only one reason Woody kept Rex after last season — he didn’t want to pay him,” the source said. “Otherwise it makes no sense that you fire the general manager and don’t fire the head coach. You know the track record of that working? There is none. Why make a decision like that when history tells you it doesn’t work?”
To say “there is none,” isn’t entirely accurate.
Carolina hired Dave Gettleman as their GM last off-season, and he kept coach Ron Rivera, and they are currently 11-4, and in first place in the NFC South.
So it can work.
