No, Russ said that Ralph was at the holiday party longer than him and didn't indicate he is doing poorly in any way. He did not give a reason for the decision ultimately.

Hard to get too excited about this move, but there were some positive things I heard from it:
- Russ saying "this brand has been tarnished" and consistently saying the team's performance in the last 15 years or so was "unacceptable"
- Nix staying on for now. A lot may not agree, but I think it's important to not start from scratch AGAIN. Get the right coach and a good QB and that will be the better indicator of whether Nix and Whaley are the right guys.
