Oddly enough this looks a lot like the way Dean's tenure in San Jose ended. Read this article on the explanation by the then SJ Owner....very eerie....

Makes me wonder if AEG will force Dean to shed some salary at the deadline.
How would you react to Ron Hextall being promoted to replace Lombardi? Similar styles perhaps, but maybe fewer ties to old coaches/players. Maybe less stubborn.
