Who said, besides people trying to make a story out of nothing. They based the story on MT saying that he anticipated his coordinators coming back. Have you ever fired someone? You don't talk about it publicly before telling the person. There were only three coordinators that could be fired and every one knows DL is allowed back for as long as he wants, so everyone would have known it was BA and that would have been unprofessional. It was Tomlin's decision.
