First he blames "bloggers" (who doesn't?) and now it's Vinny Cerrato. Jim Fassel is apparently (not really but kind of) on record as saying that the reason he isn't in town was because of bugling interferer (someone else's words) Vinny Cerrato. Quote below requires caveat that this is a case of he said he said and then he said. First we have WTOP News, whoever that is, quoting John Ryan, whoever that is, of the San Jose Mercury News, whatever that is, paraphrasing Jim Fassel. I'd track down the San Jose Mecrury News article but it's easier to simply rely on WTOP News. Here goes:
In the Morning Buzz column by John Ryan, Jim Fassel's surprise at the hiring of Jim Zorn the Redskins was pointed out.
And Ryan noted:
"This will come as no surprise to 49ers fans ... Fassel said one factor in the change of heart (by the Redskins) was the bungling interference of Vinny Cerrato."
Ouch. It sounds like Cerrato is remembered in the San Francisco bay area for his work with the 49ers, but not fondly remembered.
Bungling Interferer 1, Jim Fassel 0.
