Leslie Frazier/Other Stuff
Just got off the phone with him. He has not heard from the Skins, and said his agent has informed him of no interest from Washington to this point, contrary to other reports.
Frazier is the Minnesota defensive coordinator and has interviewed for other jobs, including Miami. He is hopeful of getting a head coaching gig and called the Redskins job "a great opportunity" for someone, but to this point he's not in the mix.
Similarlaly, checked on Chargers D Coordinator Ted Cottrell, who should be getting more attention than he has this year (weird how people are hot, then not) and as of a few hours ago he had not been contacted (the Chargers just lost today, obviously, so it's pretty early and the Skins could call later).
This week the Redskins can approach the final four teams for permission to interview coaches, which could possibly extend the process. New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels told teams earlier he was not interested in intervieing for openings, but we'll see if that stance changes. Baltimore and Atlanta really wanted to talk to his earlier; perhaps Dan Snyder would come calling (though at 31 that would be quite a bold stroke and not sure how many of Washington's ubber-experienced coaches would want to stick around to work under somone that young).
Okay, I'm rambling. Time to try to get back to sleep (Chloe and Rocco were really sick Sat. night so we're all trying to catch up from a sleepless night). If the cellphone vibrates under the pillow again, and something is up, I'll post it. Maybe they find a way to convince themselves somehow Gregg Williams does not make the most sense, but if Cowher's stance holds and Pete Carroll is off the market, too, I'd like to hear the case for it.
