Joe Whitt has been fired… his words
The way it is sounding that it was Murphy that was behind the firing as Whit was a MM guy. MM wanted Capers guys who were loyal to him on Pettine’s defense.
I would have thought that was up to Pettine.
Overall, I would think we’re seeing Moss, Whitt, etc. gone because yes, McCarthy wanted to keep them because he knew them. Now with McCarthy gone, Pettine is probably able to keep and hire the staff he wants, not the staff forced on him by McCarthy.
