Washington Redskins team president, Bruce Allen, has been let go. During his 10-year tenure as president, the Redskins went 62-97-1. They had only two playoff appearances since 2010, losing them both.
Adam Schefter announced the team would move on from Allen on Monday morning.
Bruce Allen’s 10-year run as president of the Washington Redskins is over, per sources. He has been relieved of his duties and is no longer with the organization in any capacity.

It is unclear whether any teams have interest in hiring Allen for any front-office position as of now. In 2019, the Redskins finished with a record of 3-13; their worst record since 2013. After an 0-5 start the team fired head coach Jay Gruden.
Gruden’s interim replacement, offensive line coach Bill Callahan, led the team to a 3-8 record. The Redskins currently have the second overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. They are expected to draft defensive end Chase Young.
However, a new team president could change the direction of the team moving forward. Young will likely be the best talent available at number two, but owner Dan Snyder may hire a president who wants to build the team in a different way.
No potential candidates for president has been named yet. The Redskins will call the second name in the draft on Thursday, April 23.
