Are you serious? Look at the development of Gilbert, Greene, and Smid. I think Huddy has been great as an assistant coach. I will always remember how he treated Green in the SCF when Greene was almost in tears.
What about the development of the guys in Springfield? Their development seems to be on track.
Moore is also good coach. He's great at analyzing the play and breaking it down for players while on the bench.
The biggest problem MacT had was his stubbornness, and his loyalty to some players. He showed significant growth last season, and hopefully he continues to do so.
If the team struggles and doesn't make the playoffs, I don't see him getting fired, I see him resigning.
