Redskins owner Daniel Snyder and the Redskins organization have announced the creation of a foundation aimed at aiding the Native American community.
The Washington Redskins Original Americans Foundation "will serve as a living, breathing legacy — and an ongoing reminder — of the heritage and tradition that is the Washington Redskins," Snyder wrote in a letter distributed by e-mail Monday night.
You remember Fassel, don't you? He had one foot in the door to coach the Redskins not once, but twice. He won two UFL championships, beating not only Gruden but Jim Haslett the year before. Yet here is Jay Gruden, the guy who lost to Jim Fassel, with a five-year, $20 million NFL head coaching contract.
The Washington Redskins fired Mike Shanahan on Monday morning, bringing to an end the tenure of a coach who four years ago seemed likely to return a once-proud franchise to its winning ways.
Mike Shanahan followed the tradition of Redskins coaches now by leaving a trail of wreckage behind him – a steaming, heaping pile of controversy and chaos. It is the Redskins way of the 21st century. But he leaves behind a list of questions and mysteries as well.
There is a feeling with in the Redskins organization that the dismissal of Mike Shanahan is inevitable, according to a report.
The Washington Redskins seem to break new ground nearly every season in NFL dysfunction. They play their final game of the season Sunday against the New York Giants at Met Life Stadium, but the must-watch moments will come when the game is over.
Need to Know: Mike Shanahan doesn't think that we'll have to wait long before Daniel Snyder determines his job status for 2014.
Mike and Kyle combined to lead the Redskins to a division title, while Robert Jr. and Robert III achieved their goal of making it to the NFL as an elite quarterback. But it has all fallen apart in Washington.
Mike Shanahan said he had to run the move to bench RG3 past both Daniel Snyder and executive Bruce Allen before making the call.
The coach talked to owner Daniel Snyder and general manager Bruce Allen about the hits Griffin has taken in recent weeks. Shanahan said both men agreed that sitting Griffin was the right course.
Three masts from satellite television trucks reached into the gray skies above Redskins Park on Monday afternoon, lured by turmoil the franchise can't seem to escape.
Dan Snyder will not interfere if Mike Shanahan decides to bench Robert Griffin III when the Redskins play the Falcons.
Snyder, coach Mike Shanahan and quarterback Robert "SuperBob" Griffin III are the trinity of turmoil at Redskins Park, all seemingly staking out their corner in this political battle royal. But don't overlook GM Bruce Allen's role.
During the first part of the press conference, Shanahan declined to say if he wanted to return to the Redskins next season before relenting 16 minutes in. "You always want to come back," Shanahan said. "You always want to come back."
He said he did not discuss the exchange with Guzzardi.
Daniel Snyder, of Warrington, said he volunteered to hand-carry the statement across the street to the ethics commission but one official told him the State Department would take care of it.
