That isn't to say you have to be a task master but you can't be lax and then decide to make the guys jump. It's significantly more difficult.
BB did not establish and maintain enough distance/discipline over his tenure so now that he is cracking the whip, no one is jumping.
Also, the players know bb. This new bb may be a lot more forced, not natural, and seen as fake. Also if it's not natural, he could really suck at understanding when to push buttons.
Lastly, a new coach isn't going to get fired. Players know they can't wait him out.
Not saying any above is true. Just reasons why you can't transfer accountability/discipline by BB to a new coach.
