Then the new GM calls in another GM shortly after taking the job because he's having a difficult time figuring out just how screwed they are going forward.
Except that part didn't happen.
From the story...
(Accorsi) told Gettleman he might call him with suggestions if he saw the Panthers “going off the track.”
“He said, ‘Well, what’s new?’ ” Accorsi said.
Accorsi offered to help if things got rough in the future. Gettleman wasn't asking, he just accepted the offer.
