CW: Jeff Cassar’s individual conversations were much more succinct, whereas last year he might have been worried about hurting feelings— Jon La Follette (@espn700jon) November 3, 2016

Dissatisfaction outside of the team is certainly at a new high point in regard to RSL’s coaching staff, but some players have spoken positively of Cassar’s tenure, with Yura Movsisyan providing a particularly positive perspective during yesterday’s player exit interviews.
Let’s not look at this season for the last six games. Let’s look at this season throughout the whole year. I think Jeff has done a tremendous job, coming from a season like last season and to have one or two additions, and turning the team around and being one of the best teams of the league. We players take credit, but we have to be directed. I think the coaching staff has done a great job of putting everybody in place, creating a team and system. He’s done a great job.
