Topic - Jim Fassel
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.
John Elway hasn't even interviewed his first head coaching candidate and already the Denver Broncos' new football boss is 0 for 2.
In his tour of NFL second-hand stores and used-coach lots, Dan Snyder has happened upon Jim Fassel. The former New York Giants boss, who was said to be finalizing a deal with Snyder last night, makes perfect sense as a replacement for Joe Gibbs — that is, as "perfect sense" is currently defined in Redskinsland.
"I was very confident I had been hired to coach the Washington Redskins," he said. "We started having conversations about staffing, then suddenly Jim Zorn was there. Whatever changed, they ended up hiring Zorn."
"It is what it is," Fassel said. "This is what happens when you are out of it for a while."
