here's to hoping rex can do the coaching. imo the next gm will learn very quickly it's woody's team. if he has any trepidations about working with rex he shouldn't take the job.
By the same token, how do YOU know this?
Can you or someone point me to a reference that denies or refutes these claims and proves otherwise?
