Ungrammatical passage

This article contains the following passage of dubious grammar:

[Marge] tells Hutz that Dr. Julius Hibbert has been their family physician for years and he knows Bart is fine. Later on at the Simpson House, he coaches him on exaggerating his condition to help win the jury's sympathy.[emphasis mine]

The first "he" is a bit suspect (it could be interpreted as meaning that Hutz knows Bart is fine), but the emboldened bit is totally wrong; who coaches whom? I presume that this bit should actually read "Hutz coaches Bart"; it should thus be changed to read like that. -- RobertATfm (talk) 11:08, August 15, 2012 (UTC)

It has been corrected. The he part was also referring to Dr. Hibbert and his earlier prognosis on Bart, which were minor. Marge saw Dr. Riviera as a quack and let Hutz know what he and Homer are doing is wrong. Hutz later coaches Bart to win the sympathy of the jury by exaggerating his condition, much to Marge and Lisa's chagrin. - 22:04, January 5, 2015 (UTC)
