I like a good conspiracy theory like the next man. But, do you think Bill is putting up all this retirement smoke inorder to force Jerry to fire him? Then he can leave with the last year of his contract money and become a talking head in ESPN? This puts Jerry in a tough situation because, you don't replace a hall of fame coach with Just anybody. He would have to go out there and get a big name coach to replace him. That would require more big money and taking a chance that the next guy won't screw up the team.
