Gibbs will remain as a special adviser to owner Dan Snyder and was to discuss his resignation at an afternoon news conference at Redskins Park.
The Redskins will search for a new coach immediately. Among the certain candidates are two former head coaches on Gibbs' staff, Gregg Williams and Al Saunders. The new coach will be the sixth since Snyder bought the team in 1999.
Gibbs and Snyder will both be in attendance at the press conference which will be held in the main auditorium of Redskins Park.
Question to reader(s) while I try and digest the huge news: Which of those would you take as the new HC, if either?
