Next move will be interim coach. I believe that will be Bill Callahan and Kevin O'Connell gets full playcalling duties. We will know soon— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) October 7, 2019
Redskins player to me on coaching change: "It was time. Too much laziness & stubborn *%#@ going on around here. Folks not taking #@$! serious. Looking at snap chat during practice, come on now. You know who I'm talking about. Guys were talking about it. We'll see how it goes."— ig: josinaanderson (@JosinaAnderson) October 7, 2019
Reaching out to Redskins players over text and they all knew this was coming. One starter said “if they think this will make us better this season, it won’t” Another added “someone had to take the blame” #Redskins— Dianna (@diannaESPN) October 7, 2019
Gruden was summoned to Redskins Park for a 5 a.m. meeting Monday by owner Daniel Snyder and team president Bruce Allen, who informed him of the decision. Gruden thanked them for the opportunity and left. https://t.co/DIbc5wbweK— Dan Steinberg (@dcsportsbog) October 7, 2019
Another #Skins player checks in: "Gruden is a good dude, but you can tell he saw the writing on the wall though. Players like him, it just got a little too laid back here lately & sometimes that can bite you in the butt. I've seen some things here I've never seen on other teams."— ig: josinaanderson (@JosinaAnderson) October 7, 2019
A few touch points that did upset players were:— Rhiannon Walker (@InstantRHIplay) October 7, 2019
— Not being informed Adrian Peterson wasn’t playing Week 1 until players saw him dressed down.
— A meeting where Gruden made a slideshow of players’ mistakes and going off on them without full context of why it happened, etc.
