The timing of the move is unquestionably odd. Why now? Josh Harris: “We’re just not getting it done. We haven’t been winning. There was nothing really specific, you know the record and everything that’s been done. There were a lot of positives. But it was just time to go in a different direction.” [NorthJersey.com] [NJ.com]
