You're misreading the comment... I did too before I actually watched the media day replay.
It was simply Cliff saying that he had no role in JT's improvements this summer. It's like he's saying "JT is great, but it's not because of me." He also then went on to say how excited he is to have his talent and improved game to coach and work with.
Definitely not negative at all, though I definitely see why you (and I) read it that way. It's definitely a quote that's meant to be heard instead of read.
