McCloughan to testify in DC against team

This from KYLE TASMAN

Scot McCloughan is set to make his return to D.C.

According to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, the former Washington Redskins general manager will be in the D.C. area for his arbitration hearing against the team for what he believes is wrongful termination related to alcohol consumption while on the job. McCloughan is hoping to recoup the $2.8 million remaining on his contract after the Redskins fired him for what they believe was with cause.

Worryingly for the Redskins and McCloughan, La Canfora states that according to sources, new information of alcohol consumption both by the former GM and others is expected to come to light. The NFL has league-wide mandates prohibiting the use of alcohol at team facilities. McCloughan has denied drinking on the job at any point during his stint with the Redskins.

Via CBS Sports: Evidence about the availability and consumption of alcohol by other Redskin team personnel on club property is likely to come out at the hearing. The NFL has leaguewide policies against the consumption of alcohol at team headquarters. McCloughan's case includes evidence and testimony from the highest reaches of the club, including owner Dan Snyder and team president Bruce Allen. McCloughan contends that he did not drink on the job and very rarely drank at all, and that the team was well aware of his well-documented issues with alcohol at the time he was hired. It's possible Allen, coach Jay Gruden, and other team officials could be asked to testify during the hearing, which is being decided by arbitrator Peter Harvey.

Per La Canfora, multiple team officials are expected to testify at the hearing as McCloughan seeks payment of his remaining salary. The Redskins enjoyed back-to-back winning season under his stewardship, the first time it had happened in 25 years.

Nobody really expects the Redskins to do well - 8 wins is considered a winning season for Dan Snyder's Redskins
Redskins should fire Bruce Allen & try a different way of managing this franchise
Thankfully, Kirk Cousins is no longer the QB

I hear you - we do have Doug Williams - it's just that Snyder will not stop interfering ...

Still trying to understand what makes people think Williams would be a competent GM... I have never understood the facination.
