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 Redskins' hiring of Jay Gruden was an expedited ending to a process that was expected to be much more drawn out. Gruden, 46, signed a five-year contract to become the Redskins' 27th full-time coach and the seventh since Dan Snyder purchased the team in 1999.

Former NFL coach Marty Schottenheimer has been hired as head coach and general manager of the Virginia Destroyers of the UFL.
Jerry Glanville, the colorful former coach of the NFL's Houston Oilers and Atlanta Falcons, is returning to the sidelines as head coach of the UFL's Hartford Colonials.
