Hire him on as a media liaison so he can still hang around the lockerroom & be all over 24/7 too. Perfect fit for sure.
It's a simple old tale - The mind wants what the body can't do... he still has the desire and love and isn't ready to hang them up, but his body is... ultimately, I think he'll come to that conclusion and retire, but Holland is allowing him to go out with grace and rather than come out in the media and say "He's old and useless, we're not bringing him back", he's going about it the right way, for a warrior who has given this team a LOT and deserves to go out on his own terms, so to speak...
He will not be back here next year as a player, I guarantee that.
