If this is true (which it appears to be) then it shows that the individual is not bigger than the business. An Employer can not be held hostage by an employee over a "title change", so if he wasn't prepared to evolve and adapt in the new direction of the business of the Pistons, then it is probably for the best we parted ways with him.
Similar to a players role on the team, if a player is asked to fill a different role than previously, and he was truly dedicated for the direction of the team, he would do that no questions asked...
I have absolutely no hard feelings and still think he is great at his craft, but seems like it was best to part ways
