Washington Redskins president Bruce Allen "relieved of his duties"

By  | 

WASHINGTON, DC (AP/WDBJ7) - Washington Redskins team president Bruce Allen has been fired after a tumultuous and loss-filled decade with the NFL team once coached by his father.

The Redskins never won a playoff game during Allen's time as owner Daniel Snyder's right-hand man. They made the playoffs only twice and only once won as many as 10 games in a season. This season's team went 3-13.

Allen's tenure had plenty of defeats on the field and public relations fiascoes off it.

The team could also add a new coach soon: Ron Rivera is visiting the Redskins on Monday.

Monday, December 30, the organization posted the statement to its official website saying, "As this season concludes, Bruce Allen has been relieved of his duties as President of the Washington Redskins and is no longer with the organization."

Owner Daniel Snyder went on to say: "Like our passionate fan base, I recognize we have not lived up to the high standards set by great Redskins teams, coaches and players who have come before us. As we reevaluate our team leadership, culture and process for winning football games, I am excited for the opportunities that lie ahead to renew our singular focus and purpose of bringing championship football back to Washington D.C."
