SPURRIER DENIES RESIGNATION! MAKE UP YOUR MIND BALL COACH!

Spurrier Denies Resignation Reports

By Mark Maske
Washington Post Staff Writer
Tuesday, December 30, 2003; 1:22 PM


The Washington Redskins announced the resignation of Coach Steve Spurrier today only to have Spurrier deny that he had resigned moments later.




"I have not resigned," Spurrier said by cellphone. "I've got a representative looking into some issues but I have not resigned. If they say that I have, that is not true. I'm not sure it is heading in that direction right now. We are seeing where it goes but I have not resigned."

A team source said that Spurrier's new agent, Jimmy Sexton, told the Redskins to issue the news release.

In a news release issued early this afternoon, the Redskins said Spurrier had telephoned owner Daniel Snyder and resigned "in the best interest of the Redskins franchise." In the release, Snyder said "I have accepted Steve's resignation with much regret but respect his decision."

The Redskins said in the release that they will begin their search for Spurrier's replacement immediately.

Team sources said Spurrier has informed his assistant coaches of the decision and that there had been no buyout of the remainder of his five-year, approximately $25 million contract. But Spurrier would be paid some money to cover his expenses, sources said.

Spurrier left the Washington area on Monday for his home in Florida.

I'm glad he's staying. (I think he is :roll: )

We need some consistency but I still don't know why Snyder said he accepted his resignation if Spurrier denies it.

maybe snyder has accepted it, but spurrier hasn't(meaning snyder won't let him re-neg):lol:
besides, when the hell has spurrier ever made sense? he'll say something and contradict it in the same sentence. i haven't been able to understand one thing he's said in 2 years. it probably went like this, "snyder, i'm out. i might have a chance to turn it around, but i resign. we could be great though, so next year we'll see, but for now i resign....."
