The stint of former Redskins defensive lineman Phillip Daniels as the team’s director of player development didn’t develop the way everyone had envisioned.
Daniels is out after one year, according to Mike Jones of the Washington Post.
After playing for the Redskins from 2004 through 2010, Daniels rejoined the team in 2012. Jones reports that Daniels wanted to get into coaching, but that the Redskins weren’t going to provide that opportunity.
It likely didn’t help Daniels’ prospects that he admitted the Redskins had a bounty system when Gregg Williams served as the team’s defensive coordinator. The league took no action against the Redskins or any team other than the Saints, perhaps in an effort to avoid making public the depth of the rabbit hole.
