IDK. One reason could be they didn't want him to join another team. I doubt they felt the Campbell pick was a mistake immediately so he was probably heavily involved in the scouting process still most of the 2010-11 season. It's impossible to say at what point he fell out of a favor, but holding on to him probably just prevented another team from finding out Dallas' draft strategy for 2011 should they hire Bernhardt quickly.

I've never really considered it, but I don't think it'd be a good idea to fire a scout mid-season.
