You can argue that he never had a chance, but we're talking a lot of $$$ these days and this GM is making a lot of money to not be retaining this level of talent. This is how big money, pro sports operates. I'm not going to feel bad for any coach or GM who is canned fairly or unfairly, they make more in one year that most people will make in a lifetime. They get to experience a job that .00000004% of the world holds. They have one job, the coach must win, the GM must recruit and retain. It's a bottom line industry and for whatever reasons our two have been given way too much slack in that regard.
The slack was given because Nashville can not compete in negotiations with big market clubs. Period.
The reason? There are other clubs out there with better everything than Nashville.

If you follow euro soccer a bit you'll understand.
