4 assistants let go

Postby BossHog » Tue Jan 13, 2004 11:46 pm

From the Post tomorrow:

The decision was expected -- Joe Gibbs wasn't likely to retain any of former coach Steve Spurrier's assistants who have one year remaining on their deals: offensive coordinator Hue Jackson, defensive coordinator George Edwards, defensive line coach Robert Nunn and quarterbacks coach Noah Brindise.

Yup. 'Twas to be expected.
It's good. Joe lets everybody know they can go look for work well before the camps. Too bad Buffalo doesn't show the same courtesy.

Yeah. I mean, you can't see Hue Jackson discussing the next play with Zampese, can you ?

I thought Hue could've stayed too, but like hailskins666 said, you don't argue with Joe. And the Bills hired Mularkey so their assistants should be retained or let go soon. Hopefully Joe will have his staff set up by the end of the week!

OK... i like hue... but come on... sure, we needed to sing that song a week ago when we didn't know who'd be coming in here...

Joe Freakin Bugel and Ernie Flippin Zampese man... Jack Breaux was already named RB coach too, and actually 'came with Joe'.

... what's Hue gonna do, get coffee?

I just figured they might keep Hue in a lesser capacity to learn from all these old guys. I mean, who's gonna run the team in 5 years? Gibbs, Bugel, Zampese will all be gone. Everyone keeps talking about Gibbs grooming Russ Grimm, but if he doesn't end up here who's it gonna be?

I agree, don't argue with Joe... but I hope down the road, but not necessarily this year, he grooms someone to take over for him so that upon his final farewell, after he puts a few more rings on his finger, there is a worthy successor to continue the true Washington Redskins tradition.

Where did that come from? Hugh Jackson might have been a worthy protege.

Yeah, after my last post I got to thinking about it... could he have brought Coy in to keep with the Redskins/Gibbs tradition???

Perhaps... although it seems to me he would be biased if Coy didn't develop correctly. Then again, who am I to question the mighty Joe Gibbs? Plus, I think JG has better judgement than I'm supposing above.

I don't think Joe needs to 'groom' anybody amd nor is that his cross to bear.

I do think that he is going to restore order to a franchise that desperately needed it, and he will provide people with every reason thinkable to want to be here any way. These guys don't need to worry about who's gonna take over, and they sure don't need to worry about it before they've even started righting the ship. Staff will come and go over the next couple of years as adjustments are made... this staff's job is to put a product back in Washington that people want to be a part of again -- players, coaches, and especially fans.

And if you're looking for a student, I'm not really sure why we're looking past Greg Williams. This guy is a brilliant defensive coach, that lacked the intangibles to make the jump to the big time HC job.

But I'm sure he'll want another kick at the can in about 3-5 years, and he'll be taking to Gibbs like a sponge to water to try and learn all that he can.
