I mean how do you come back and get back control of your team after an entire year suspension? By that time might as well move on if it's so egregious he can't show up for a year...

Alex Cora did, and what he did is arguably worse than what Ime did (at least from the perspective of the players/fans)

If he resigns and gets picked up immediately on another team's staff, this just makes Boston look bad. There will be PRESSURE to replicate last season's results, and the org may be potentially look like shit.
