The Washington Redskins have parted ways with their team president Bruce Allen after a decade he spent on the job.
“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 Dan Snyder said in a press statement on Monday.
“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.” Snyder continued.
Allen was reportedly informed on the team’s decision ahead of the press release.
The Redskins completely ended their relationship with Allen, without attempting to reassign him within the organization.
The move followed a season, in which the Redskins won just three games. During Allen’s presidency, the team went 62-96-1. The team was under pressure from its fan base, who continuously called for his dismissal.
The Redskins fired head coach Jay Gruden earlier this season after an 0-5 start in his sixth season.
