Skins At The Senior Bowl/Fassel
Most of the Skins coaching staff is in Mobile at the Senior Bowl. Vinny Cerrato was supposed ot be there too, but I hear he cancelled at the last minute because of the prolonged coaching search.
Again, if you put a gun to my head and made me guess about the mystery candidate, I'd say Fassel. He's the only name I mentioned that Friday night when the first mystery meeting took place. I can't get it confimred, but I heard Snyder's plane might be returning back to Scottsdale tonight, which just happens to be where Fassel lives.
I do know Fassel was supposed to be driving his rental car back to Milwaukee today to take a commercial flight back to Arizona, and he may have jumped Redskins One to Chateau Snyder instead.
Again, can't get it confirmed but the name I kept hearing today was Fassel. He has a history with developing QBs like Elway and Simms, but bombed with Boller and the Ravens. Could be talking to him about coordinator-type positions as well, given that numerous league sources have told me that Snyder and Cerrato are down on Al Saunders. Faslle interviewed withthe Chiefs a week ago for their OC opening, but did not get it.
Anyway, Gregg Williams, Greg Blache and Joe Bugel are among the Redskins coaches not at the Senior Bowl, according to sources, which is not unusual. Joe Gibbs remains around Redskins Park, as he is expected to until they finish this transition, but is not taking part in the interviews
Numerous league sources have said the Redskins have not asked the Packers for permission to interview any of their coaches. The Redskins can not interview any Pats or GIants coaches until after the Super Bowl,as they did not make a previous initial attempt to speak to any of them. So they'd have to wait to more weeks to even talk to them. Some aroudn the league believe the Skins were banking on a Giants loss, allowing them to interview Dc Steve Spagnuolo today, but the G-men pulled another upset. Spagnuolo might end up getting a good look from Atlanta should they opt to continue their search into it's second decade (okay, it just seems that long)
