    Well, that’s gotta be something personal, but not big enough to affect his son. Weird to step down mid-season when they’ve really been doing okay. They beat *us* for goodness sake, so their season hasn’t been completely off. 😉

    From what I’ve read, he’s simply saying it’s time to retire, and he feels this puts his son in the best place to succeed.
