Fassel And Green
There has been a lot of chatter about these two guys as possible candidates.
Spoke to Jim Fassel last night and he said he doesn not want to go into much detail about any possible contact with NFL teams, but that he has not been contacted by the Redskins at this point.
Spoke to someone very close to Dennis Green who said he is aware of no contact between the sides.
Both of these guys interviewed for the Skins job in 2004 before Coach Joe got the gig. Their star has faded since then however.
It could be that Dan Snyder's plane was in Arizona Friday, but that the trip was totally unrelated to the coaching search. Word I have received from Arizona is that the Skins have not contacted the Cards about interviewing any of their coaches.
So then I started to think about local assistant coaches who might have been interviewed Friday, guy who could get here without need of a plane. Rex Ryan has not been contacted, his agent said. Brian Billick has not returned my calls but the word coming out was that whoever the Skins did talk to Friday, it was not a big-name guy.
Also, two staff members would fulfill the NFL's Rooney Rule stipulations - defensive coordinator Greg Blache and running backs coach Earnest Byner. Blache let it be known he has no head coaching aspirations and is not interested in interviewing, league sources said, while team sources said that Byner was not contacted.
The two minority coaches the Skins hope to contact - Indy's Ron Meeks and Jim Caldwell - could be playing for a long time. So it will be interesting to see how the Skins meet that criteria, assuming they did not already do so on Friday.
