According to the Washington Post, Bruce Allen will remain the Redskins’ president in 2019 and oversee football operations. Allen will also assume control of the business side of the franchise.
“There was never any question about this,” Redskins senior VP of communications Tony Wyllie said Friday when asked about Allen’s status. “Of course he’s coming back.”
This comes after the Redskins made the decision to fire executive Brian Lafemina, who was hired to run the team’s business operations last year.
There has been a lot of outcry in Washington about removing Allen, but owner Dan Synder has continued to stick by him. Several sources have told the Post that Snyder remains comfortable with Allen in charge of the team.
Allen worked for the Raiders from 1995 to 2002 before joining the Buccaneers for the 2003 season. The Redskins hired Allen as their GM back in 2009 and later promoted him to president in 2014.
During his time with the Redskins, the team has produced a record of 42-70 (41.1), which including one playoff appearance.
