Rex is such a bonehead - almost a cartoon character sometimes. No good manager would ever handle a personnel switch like that. You pull the guy aside and talk to him one on one first. You don't just announce it in front of the whole team and surprise the player. That's just dumb.
If that is truly how McKnight was told that is utter BS.
You are correct. A good Mgr (which is what a HC is, well at least one that knows what one is) would tell McKnight in private and why.
If this truly was the way Rex handled it then the NY Post wasn't that far off a few weeks ago. Rex is a clown and turning this franchise into a circus.
