Messier wanted the coaching job. He didn't get it. He decided to leave the organization to pursue something else. That's his choice and I'm not going to kill him for it.
Maybe he didn't really like what he's been doing the last 4 years and saw the coaching opportunity as something he'd rather do. Maybe he doesn't really know what he wants to do and just wants to try different things.
I agree that if he wants to coach, then he should start at a lower level or at least as an assistant. But he saw an opportunity to start at the top and he went for it.
None of us are inside his head, so it's unfair to make assumptions about what he's thinking. Personally, I'm glad he left the organization for the simple fact that I don't think he would have made a good coach or GM. But I don't harbor any ill feelings toward him. It's his life. He can do what he wants with it.
