We do not know the exact timeframe for Woody’s departure, but we do know his brother, Christopher Wold Johnson will take over running the day to day operation of the team.
Whether this will help the team, hurt the team, or be neutral is anybody’s guess. We don’t know how active Woody will be from across the Atlantic. We also don’t know much about his brother’s ability to run the team successfully.
