What is been said

“He’s likely to be a GM,” Bean instructed The Athletic in 2019. “The point about him is that he’s smart more than enough to know that he’s still understanding and growing, and he’s seeking to get stronger at his craft. … In its place of just hurrying to the seat and then seeking to determine it out, Joe’s that dude who needs to have all the responses to the examination ahead of he goes and sits down. Pretty couple of men and women are like that. There is so lots of men and women in this small business that are just seeking to get into that head coach seat, that GM seat, and it’s possible they are not all set for it. I have no question he’s likely to be all set for it. He’s a good communicator. He understands men and women. You’re not likely to outwork him.”
