As the Washington Redskins continue to quickly unravel, the man who delivered the team’s only three Super Bowl trophies could soon be coming back.
There’s a rumor making the rounds that two-time former head coach Joe Gibbs could be returning in a role similar to the one occupied by Bill Parcells in Miami. Gibbs would be responsible for hiring a G.M. and a head coach, and otherwise stabilizing the franchise without grinding away as a head coach.
We reported earlier this month that owner Daniel Snyder still consults with Gibbs, and that the two men had dinner in Charlotte the night before the Redskins’ loss to the Panthers.
For now, it’s just a rumor. And it possibly flows from the fact that it makes a lot of sense.
Then again, the fact that it makes so much sense probably means it won’t happen.
