Report: Bruce Allen Will No Longer Run Redskins’ Football Operations


JP Finlay of NBC Washington reports that Redskins president Bruce Allen will no longer be running the team’s football operations on Monday.

According to Finlay, Allen’s role with the Redskins extends beyond just football operations and it remains to be seen what other changes will happen from here. However, Finlay says it’s clear Allen won’t be involved in personnel matters.

Recent reports have said that Allen’s role with the team would likely impact who they hire as their next head coach. 

Beyond that, Finlay previously reported that Redskins owner Dan Snyder has been working with a select group of football advisers to determine his next steps for the franchise. 

Earlier in the day, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported that Snyder has done research on several personnel executives with former Texans GM Rick Smith and ESPN analyst Louis Riddick among those on his radar.

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 45-82 (35.4), which includes one playoff appearance.
