Redskins GM Fired After Two Seasons

According to a report in The Washington Post, the Washington Redskins fired General Manager Scot McCloughan on Thursday just two years into his four-year contract. President Bruce Allen announced the decision and wished McCloughan “well in his future endeavors. The team will have no further comment on his departure.” An official told the Post however that the firing was due in part to McCloughan's ongoing alcohol problems, which also led to previous firings with the San Francisco 49ers in 2010 and Seattle Seahawks in 2014.
