Bill Lazor To Seattle; Jack Burns Is Gone; Redskins Never Contacted Grimm

Redskins QB Coach Bill Lazor acccepted an offer to take the same job with Seattle, league sources said, after spending a few days in Seattle interviewing. Lazor was not going to retain his title here.

Jack Burns, who coached the QBs here in 2004 and was an offensive assistant the other three years, has cleared out his office and is no longer with the team, league sources said. Bob Saunders left earlier this week, so the team has extra positions to play with. However, league sources said the staff is not expected to grow much om the offensive side, with new OC Jim Zorn perhaps bringing in one younger coach to assist him.

Don Breaux, another longtime Joe Gibbs coach, remains with the team in what will likely be a consulting position. Joe Bugel, the other member of the staff who dates back to Gibbs 1.0, coaches the O Line as he has the last 4 years. (He had a helluva year last year, by the way, with that unit).

On the defensive side, the Redskins still will fill the vacant D Line position. They interviewed Larry Brooks for the job over a week ago but he was not offered it and is not expected to get it at this point, sources said.

Also, as much as it would make sense to many of us, former Redskin player and coach Russ Grimm, a stud O Lineman and an assistant coach with Arizona, has never interviewed for this job and has not been contacted to do so, league sources said. One of owner Dan Snyder's planes is en route to Phoenix, according to flight tracking software, which may or may not be related to the fact that Jim Fassel lives in Scottsdale.

Some have speculated that Grimm, who lives in Pheonix now, may be destined to get on that plane, But league sources said the Redskins did not contact Arizona for permission to speak to him and if the plane is there for him, well, it's news to him.

Maybe it's landing for a round of golf. Maybe someone in ownership left his wallet in Pheonix at the Super Bowl and they're flying back to pick it up. We can only guess for now.

Also, from a Giants Insider type blog under heading "Redskin fans Scared Fassel may be Coach":
http://boards.giants.com/forums/thread/673991.aspx

ciucca: lol! I have to give the Redskins fans some credit they are *** that Fassel may soon be their new coach. All you need to do is peruse the Skin boards to see this. I for one hope Jimmy gets the job. This is the same feeling I had when Gibbs came back for a second tenure. They will be a non factor for years to come. Now if only the Cowboys will hire Ray Handley.

Bluedude2: I don't think Fassel is really a Ray Handley type coach. He just lost control here. If he learned from that he could be good for them.

ThereCanBeOnlyOneLT: The Skins hiring Fassel certainly be the best offseaosn move for the Giants, and we wouldn't even have to do anything.

Sources close to Spagnuolo told FOXSports.com's Jay Glazer that one of the major factors in his decision to pull out was that he wants to be able to hire his own staff rather than join a team with the coaching staff already in place.

Repost from the last thread:

This is for the Giants fan who posted his perspective on Fassel: Thanks, Mr. Wolf. I was actually wondering how the Fassel era was remembered by a Giants fan, and I think you gave us an even-handed account of his tenure in New York. It also confirms my belief that he would not be a good fit here. We already hired a tutor for JC when we hired Zorn. Meeks might make a good coach, but with Blache as DC, I don't see a defensive-minded coach being the right selection. I'm still pulling for Mooch, personally. I think he has the right personality to hobnob with Snyder and Cerrato, and still be somewhat productive as a coach. Just my opinion of course, and you know what they say about opinions...

Edit: The news that Redskin One is en route to Arizona gives me a feeling of dread like a lead weight in my stomach. Say it ain't so, Jasno...

Extending the search this far was a charade. It was Fassel all along. These extra interviews were a PR move because of the unhappiness expressed over the Fassel selection.

Posted by: skinfanman | February 7, 2008 2:20 PM | Report abuse

Knowing that Redskins One is flying to Arizona to (possibly) pick up Fassel reminds me of the emotions I had when I heard 9 years ago that Payne Stewart's airplane was flying across country with an incapacitated flight crew...the assumption that we were waiting for inevitable death.

Posted by: DreamOutLoud | February 7, 2008 2:21 PM | Report abuse

The NFL would not have permitted Snyder to make an announcement last week. Besides, picking the brain of the guy who managed to build the defense that a) won a World Championship and b) stopped a Patriots team that clobbered the 'Skins 52-7 was worth it.

I think the whole process should have been completed several weeks ago, but I don't blame "Mr." Snyder for the past two weeks. I do blame him for picking Fassel, which is kind of like picking an accountant to host a game show.

I can't take this anymore!! This is beyond redonkulous!! Danny Boy and his sidekick Vinny are the biggest Donkeys ever! Seriously, what does Vinny do? Is Danny Boy that insecure that he needs a "yes" man to pump up his ego? I guess being a billionaire isn't enough!

The more I think of it, the more I think Danny Boy has no intention of making the Skins a Super Bowl caliber team. He is in this to make more money. Everything went up and up after he hired Gibbs and now he is probably scrambling to figure a way to keep his cash cow alive to fund his Six Flag and other investments.

Let's face it; the Skins I knew and cheered for is just a distance memory. I'm going to become a new fan of NASCAR!!

*** completely unrelated puppy post ***

My new puppy, who is all of 2 pounds 12 ounces, and who on the first night home with me barked for 14 straight hours and on the second night home with me barked for 14 straight hours, has finally calmed down to a whimper.

He has also figured out (I do not make this up) how to climb up the refrigerator after I open the door and get to his favorite treat: Oscar Meyer bologna.

"What? You pooped in the refrigerator? And you ate the whole wheel of cheese? How'd you do that? Heck, I'm not even mad; that's amazing. How 'bout we get you in your p.j.'s and we hit the hay."

This dog isn't a dog. He's a velociraptor. Always thinking, plotting my doom. In the middle of the night this little ball of fur is going to slit my throat. If you don't hear from me for a few days, that's what happened.

Well, I have already predicated that his defense will shut us out 4 times over the next 2 years (the only two years of the Facile regime) and I assume that was made much easier for him by the guided tour VinnyDAN gave him of Redskin Park. I assume VinnyDAN also told Spaz the strengths and weaknesses of each player, and let him look at our defensive playbook in an effort to be thorough, so that should help the Giants offense as well.

Good job VinnyDAN.

Just have the cohones to say "I, VinnyDAN, own the team can run it into the ground if I want. I ain't interviewing anyone other then my old fellatrix Coach Facile, and you guys can go stick it."

So, worse then hearing him name Coach Facile as the HC, I will have to listen to his self congratulatory fictional story of how thorough he was. And then I will have to vomit.

Come on VinnyDAN, prove me wrong and name Meeks. Or the cardboard cut out of the dearly departed Spuds McKenzie.

BTW - I don't think Facile is that bad a coach, but coming in with his behind in the air and VinnyDAN zipping up his pants, it just can't end well . . .

Posted by: RedBee | February 7, 2008 2:33 PM | Report abuse

I have come, not only to accept the fact that Fassel will be the next HC, but I actually welcome it. Two years from now, when the Redskins are 3-13 and an embarrassment to the league, The Danny will realize that he does not know football. He will then hire a GM to run the team, and pout in his personal theme parks (formally known as six flags before they all shut down). Then, and only then, the Redskins will regain their former glory.

Its either this, or I have to accept the fact that I will never again see the Redskins in a superbowl, unless its on ESPN-Classic...
