Here is a list of the coaching staff that were let go by the Redskins today:
* Executive Vice President/Head Coach – Mike Shanahan
* Offensive coordinator – Kyle Shanahan

* Linebackers – Bob Slowik
* Wide receivers – Mike McDaniel
* Advance scout – Larry Coyer
* Offensive quality control – Richmond Flowers
* Defensive assistant – Bobby Slowik
Read Jake Russell’s comprehensive report for full details.
Conspicuous by his absence on the list is defensive coordinator Jim Haslett. How did this even happen? I tweeted my thoughts on the matter:
Of course players chimed in with their well wishes for the coach and how great it was to play for him.
It’s all very sad.
For the fan base.
… that has to endure countless more empty promises, a nearly complete re-building, and has experienced about as much success as the Betamax – and poignantly, that’s about when they last had the swagger of success too.
All we have is each other at this point #RedskinsNation. Hail.
