Per the Twitterz

It was real Mike, last year was fun, but you bombed worse than Zorn in the end.

Is this "official"? Haven't seen or heard any official announcing.

The good news is Bruce is still here. He must not be that upset with Dan. Mike did some goods things around here. I am only glad he is gone if we get someone better. Shouldn't be that hard.
For all the Kyle haters out there, you may end up missing the yards and points he put up.

No, the good news is that the entire staff was also fired too. Most notably D Coordinator Haslett and his miserably performing 3-4 defense. =D>

Throw in the horrendous special teams that we had this season as well. Whoever we do bring in next season, I hope they teach these young guys how to tackle correctly. I have never seen worse tackling across the board as a team. I hope Sav Rocca is given his walking papers today as well.

“We are going to take a smart, step-by-step approach to finding the right coach to return the Redskins to where we believe we should be,” General Manager Bruce Allen said in the same statement. “We will analyze accurately and honestly all of the decisions that were made over the past year.”

If the presence of quotes from the G.M. in the release announcing that the coach has been fired mean that the G.M. is safe, then Allen is safe — as is Vikings G.M. Rick Spielman.

Sadly, this is a statement that I have a hard time having any faith in :-(

This quote should answer the question about Bruce Allen:

“We are going to take a smart, step-by-step approach to finding the right coach to return the Redskins to where we believe we should be,” General Manager Bruce Allen said in the same statement. “We will analyze accurately and honestly all of the decisions that were made over the past year.


Hoping for the best for the franchise moving forward..

dang it sorry already posted...

I'm glad they got rid of all the coaches - let the new HC bring in who he wants ..

Kyle's offense may have been statistically good but it did not look all that great - we will see if anyone thinks he's worth bringing in
We're going to be better because Snyder is not making football decisions - in the past we all hoped for change but it did not happen - I'm convinced that NFL guys are now in charge here - it will take time but we're on the right track

I read that the assistants will meet with Bruce Allen soon to see if they will be retained for next year.

Great, that's done with. Now we can move on from this crap.
Mike, thanks for your efforts and for cleaning out what was a moribund franchise base. For that, I will be forever grateful. From all accounts, our infrastructure is eons ahead of what it was (e.g. practice bubble)

It is unclear to me exactly who else was fired, other than Kyle, that is, so I'm curious to see how that goes. My guess is that we find a head coach first this time and let them evaluate who of the remaining staff gets to stay and who goes. Excited to see what this team does between now and the draft. I have a feeling we won't have to wait too long to get a HC.
I know he got a pretty good zip on the ball. He has a quick release. . . once I seen a coupla' throws, I was just like 'Yeah, he's that dude.'"
