More on the return of the great Joe Gibbs

Postby redskins56 » Wed Jan 07, 2004 8:51 am


For the second consecutive year, something unthinkable happens in the coaching ranks.

High-level Redskins sources told that Washington Redskins great Joe Gibbs has accepted a deal to become the Redskins new head coach. Terms of the deal were not immediately available, but the sources said he accepted late Tuesday.

Gibbs owns a small percentage of the Atlanta Falcons and would have to surrender his shares with the team, but he has already discussed the solution with Falcons owner Arthur Blank.

In addition to his acceptance of a deal, Redskins sources also told that Gibbs has already met with and signed former Bills head coach Gregg Williams to become his new defensive coordinator. Williams was the hottest defensive coordinator on the open market and was previously set to fly to New York on Friday to interview with Tom Coughlin.

Last year, the Dallas Cowboys signed Bill Parcells, taking him out of retirement. But Gibbs is a different story. He has been out of coaching since 1992 after leading the Redskins to three Super Bowl titles and then left football completely to join NASCAR.

One person close to the situation said Redskins owner Daniel Snyder offered Gibbs a rather hefty sum to return to the sidelines and wanted to make a big splash with such a shocking development in the next day or two.

Gibbs made his decision Tuesday, but then moved immediately to construct his staff. It is unclear when the Redskins will make such a shocking move official...

Can you picture a 30 year old fat guy giggling like a little girl, doing cartwheels, and crying tears of joy? That's the scene at my house. My Cowboy friends are PISSED!! They know Parcells is NOTHING compared to the almighty JOE!!!!! Next year, the Cowboys can lose in the playoffs in WASHINGTON!!! Snyder is a MF GENIUS!!!!

Now that was funny tx_skins_fan... because a 33 year old fat guy was out making fat snow angels in the grass up here in Canada.

Sean Taylor was one of a kind, may he rest in peace.
