Vinny Cerrato has left his post as vice president of football operations for the Washington Danielskins, and was replaced (rather quickly) by former Tampa Bay Buccaneers (two Cs, one N, two Es) GM Bruce Allen.
The timing of Cerrato’s decision to step down before the season is over suggests that owner Dan Snyder was fed up with internal strife and had his eye not only on a new hire for the position of executive vice president of football operations, but also a new head coach, perhaps Allen’s former colleague Jon Gruden. –WaPo.
Jon Gruden and his balls just signed a multi-year extension with ESPN, but the Redskins have two things working in their favor. A metric assload* of cash, and the total disregard for prudently spending it. Sounds like Jon Gruden will be the next head coach of some football players inside the Beltway. Poor Ron Jaworski must be getting FNG Syndrome at this point.
