“I am going to pull the pin,” Hagerty said.

It is not a decision he has taken lightly.

“I’ve been struggling with this for quite a while, since September or October,” he said. ” . . . I know it’s a four-year commitment. I know I’ve got plenty of gas in the tank to go three or four years. I just wanted to make sure I left when I still really loved what I do.”
