No managerial speculation
We’ve received a couple of requests in email and in the comments to other articles asking us to speculate on possible managerial replacements for Melvin. Now that (I know you’re all shocked) the rest of the local media’s now agreed on the “Melvin’s a fired man walking” story, there’s a lot of speculation on who’s available, who’s good, and so on.
I’m not going to speculate on this until he’s actually fired. He will be fired, but I’d like to put off the “who’s next” for a while. It just seems… it doesn’t seem right, and there’s nothing to be gained from speculating on a possible replacement a couple weeks early.
That’s my thought, though — Dave and Jason may well post a detailed breakdown later today on their thoughts on who might replace Melvin.
