Though some league insiders believe that Jim Fassel will never be an NFL head coach again, Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that Fassel could be the head coach of the Washington Redskins as soon as Wednesday.
And Fassel could be paired with former Ravens defensive coordinator Rex Ryan, who is under consideration to return to the Ravens in that same capacity ó and who also could end up coaching the Falcons.
Left out in the cold would be current Redskins defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who not long ago was given a healthy raise to get him to refrain from pursuing other opportunities to become a head coach elsewhere. Williams has been interviewed multiples times, has spent four years in the building, and hasnít been offered the job. Thatís not a good sign.
With Fassel being the head coach and probably wanting to run the offense himself, would it be a faux paux to bring back Al Saunders to run the offense and fire Chan Gailey?
