Robiskie dumped

Former Redskins interim head coach Terry Robiskie was dumped again, this time by the Cleveland Browns. See the full story here.

Robiskie was dumped by the Redskins at the end of the 2000 season. He was named interim head coach when Daniel Snyder dumped Norv Turner as head coach with three games remaining in the season. The Redskins were 1-2 under Robiskie's tenure. Snyder then turned coaching and management over to Marty Schottenheimer who went 8-8 in the 2001 season before being dumped to make room for Steve Spurrier, whom Snyder hyped would revolutionize football. Spurrier turned the tables on Snyder by dumping the Redskins in 2003 season after going 12-20 as Redskins coach. Snyder won tremendous public accolades when he lured Washington legend Joe Gibbs out of retirement to be president, head coach and chief scout for the Skins in 2004.

The Redskins have gone 41-55 since Robiskie was dumped in 2000. Schottenheimer's record is 47-33 since being dumped by Snyder.

There is no indication that Robiskie ever told Snyder to take a dump, although Norv Turner might have. Robiskie and Spurrier are the only Snyder-era coaches not to return with new teams to dump on the Redskins.

Seeking stability, coach-in-chief Gibbs said he would neither dump his coaching staff nor dump the Redskins' approach to free agents. He implied that he would not dump Brandon Lloyd and hoped something could be worked out to keep the Archuleta situation from going to the dumpster.

It seems there will be no more dumping on the Redskins.
