- The Washington Times - Monday, October 7, 2019

The Redskins have issued an official statement after owner Dan Snyder and team president Bruce Allen fired coach Jay Gruden on Monday morning. 

“Through the first five games of the 2019 season, the team has clearly not performed up to expectations, and we all share in that responsibility,” the team said in a release. “Moving forward we are committed to doing all that we can collectively as an organization to turn things around and give our Redskins fans and alumni a team they can be proud of in 2019 and beyond.”

In the offseason, Allen told reporters he felt like the Redskins were “close” to competing. Washington had a young, promising defense and started last year with a 6-3 record before Alex Smith was lost to a leg injury. 

But the Redskins have not won a game in 2019 and have been blown out for the last few weeks.

Bruce Allen will meet with reporters at 1 p.m.
