Although we've heard a lot to the contrary this week, finally there is print denying reports that Jim Fassel has all but secured the head coaching job of the Redskins. Per ESPN:
Team and league sources also insisted that Washington defensive coordinator Gregg Williams... is still a candidate for the position.
Speaking of interviews, as I think I have some coming up, or hope so, anyways. Do you ever wonder what gets asked? How close is an interview for a Head Coach position to the interviews the rest of us slobs have to maneuver when the economy isn't shite in a pine tree? I have a real problem with interviews conceptually, since they necessarily ask dumb questions like: What are your biggest weaknesses? I can't imagine any employer expects honest answers, such as:
- Do you consider a heroine addiction to be a weakness?
- I like to steal things from my employer.
- Well, it depends on how you interpret my criminal record. I like to view it as a wealth of diverse experiences that aid me daily. For instance, if I lock myself out of my car, or even lose my keys for that matter, it's no big shakes. I can get in and start it.
- I'm a workaholic.
- I am confident.
- I tend to obsess over the details.
- I'm too perfect.
My biggest weakness? I don't interview well.
