Jimmy Raye: 'I was carrying out the head coach's wishes'
"I was carrying out the head coach's wishes," Raye told Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com Tuesday. "I was doing what I was brought here to do under his philosophy he wanted installed. I tried as best I could to carry that out with the quarterbacking and the personnel that we had. I didn't come in and say, 'This is my offense, and I'm running this, and if you don't like it, you can get somebody else.' I was doing what was given me to do."
Raye, Redskins' offensive coordinator under Marty Schottenheimer in 2001, was fired less than a day after getting a vote of confidence from Singletary -- and after the team eturned from falling to 0-3 with a loss on the road to Kansas City.
"After I got back here I went home, and I said, 'You know what, I'm just going to go back and look at the film," Singletary said. "So, I came back here and basically spent the night looking at film. And just kind of looked at the overall view of where we are, and looking at where we need to go, and felt that I needed to make the change."
