You can't be that naive.
They were BFFs. Rex always went out of his way to compliment Pettine and bring attention to him. And Pettine repays him by taking a job within the same division.
Here is what happened IMO. Rex took away Pettine's playcalling duties. Pettine gets pissed. The opportunistic weasel Manish swoops in and Pettine leaks like a sieve for two seasons.
