RSL was at 1.43 pts/gm under Petke and they are undefeated with 2.5 pts/gm in four games under Juarez.  I know some of it is probably who they played, but still...

There was a study about coach changes - there is often a short term increase in performance, but rarely a long term one. Combine that with opponents and a small sample size - doubt it was Petke holding RSL back necessarily. There was a similar bump when Petke took over IIRC (maybe not as big).

And obviously 2.5/gm is never going to last for any significant period of time.

Of course, I'm just saying the fact Juarez went undefeated, with two wins, in the three games prior to Petke's dismissal, made it a helluva of a lot easier to move on from him.

Oh yeah, that totally makes sense.

Well, didn't Richie Williams have a decent run as interim coach after JCO got canned?
