The former Tampa Bay Buccaneers GM Bruce Allen is hired to fill Vinny Cerato's spot shortly after he resigned, but not before they complied with the Rooney Rule and interviewed 2 minority candidates.
They are going to hold a news conference Thursday afternoon to address the filling of the spot.
A statement released by the Redskins Thursday morning states that Cerrato said he has discussed the teams future numerous times with Daniel Snyder.
Cerrato has stated about the situation: "We agreed that the franchise needs someone different in this position, I'm thankful to Dan Snyder and other members of his ownership team for the opportunities I've been given over the years."
ESPN 980 was the first to report the resignation.
The late George Allen, (cerrato's father) coached the Redskins in the 1970s and brought the team to Super Bowl VII.
Even though cerrato has been criticized greatly about his player personnel moves he has been Snyders right-hand man for almost the entire 10 years snyder has owned the Redskins.
