Redskins Interviewing Steve Mariucci
ABC 7 Sports has learned that Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder and Vinnie Cerrato are in Phoenix interviewing Steve Mariucci as a possible replacement for Joe Gibbs.
Mariucci is currently an analyst for the NFL Network.
He was fired as head coach of the Detroit Lions in 2005 during his third season at the helm. Mariucci spent six seasons as head coach of the San Francisco 49ers from 1997 to 2002.
ABC 7 Sports spoke with Adam Schefter of the NFL Network who confirmed that Snyder and Cerrato were speaking with Mariucci on Wednesday. Mariucci was asked by ABC 7 Sports about the Redskins vacancy during Super Bowl Media Day on Tuesday, but he would not respond.
The Redskins are planning to speak with former N.Y. Giants head coach Jim Fassel while in Arizona. The team would like to interview current Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, who cannot talk until after the Super Bowl.
Snyder spoke again with Indianapolis Colts assistant Ron Meeks on Tuesday. The defensive coordinator met with Snyder in Indianapolis and the two previously discussed the job at Snyder's home on January 17th and 18th
Good for Mooch.
