Guge also said that Wayne Hunter would be the starter, as long as he was the OL coach...... why would anyone believe anything he says.
Pettine, IMO, wanted to make a name for himself...... he would never do that, under Rex Ryan.
This is not something that's exclusive to Rex...... Belicheat has had plenty of coordinators leave, for a variety of reasons. And, upon leaving, some opened their mouths about the Pats. Mangini opened up the Spygate can of worms and McDaniels stated that cheating was common practice.
NO HC is a great OC and DC..... that's why you hire competent people to compliment your strengths. Belicheat won, when he had great coordinators, in Weis and Crennel. McCarthy has the best QB in the league, but he only won when Capers had the defense playing top 3. Payton is a great OC, with a great QB, but he only won when Williams had the defense top rated. I can keep going on and on...... but, the bottom line is there are no HCs that are great at offense AND defense....... there just AREN'T.
