So, Richards was given a team that was just starting the process of re-building, and Yeo came in about mid-way through that process.

I would say the re-build is now complete. Anything less than making the playoffs should be considered a fire-able offense for someone (most likely Yeo).
LeMaire leaving and Riser being fired goes hand in hand. So, I think its kinda the same to associate it with the start of Richards. But I don't think you're disputing that. I'd say, draft-wise, they stopped the rebuild 2 years ago when they started drafting nothing but projects.
