Report: 49ers peeved that Redskins didn't cancel coach interviews
Not everybody is happy with the way the Redskins hired new coach Jay Gruden.
All's well and good with the Redskins, right?
Probably because, as former Washington quarterback Doug Williams told the Washington Post, "The luckiest guy in this whole deal is Robert Griffin. Jay understands offense to its fullest, and especially the quarterback position.”
But you know who's reportedly not happy about the deal? Those who prepared to interview and then were not notified when their interviews were cancelled. For instance, some in the 49ers organization.
49ers not happy Greg Roman and Vic Fangio prepared for Redskins HC interviews Thursday and Wash never cancelled before hiring Jay Gruden.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 12, 2014
Roman, for those who don't know, is San Francisco's offensive coordinator and Fangio is the team's defensive coordinator. Since we assume those two spent part of their work-week studying the Redskins for their interview while preparing for Sunday's game vs. the Panthers, yes, it makes sense the 49ers would be peeved at this reported lack of grace.
On another note, never change, you glorious Redskins franchise.
UPDATE: The Redskins now say they never offered interviews to Fangio or Roman, though they did ask for permission from the 49ers to possibly interview them.
“Nothing was ever scheduled,” Redskins spokesman Tony Wyllie said, via the Washington Post.
