Joe Gibbs retires

Joe Gibbs has stepped down as coach and president of the Washington Redskins today. Gibbs had one year remaining on a 5 year deal he signed upon his return to the NFL.

After the toughest season of his Hall of Fame career, one that tested his leadership like never before, Joe Gibbs is stepping down.

He resigned as coach and team president of the Washington Redskins on Tuesday, three days after a playoff loss ended an inspirational late-season run that followed the death of safety Sean Taylor.

Gibbs will remain as a special adviser to owner Dan Snyder and was to discuss his resignation at an afternoon news conference at Redskins Park.

Gibbs has gone through tragedy both with the team in the form of Sean Taylor's murder and in his personal life with his grandson being diagnosed with Leukemia.

Gibbs also runs a multi-million dollar racing empire.

He's no doubt one of the greats and I say with the utmost respect that as an NFC East rival that I am both sad and happy to see him go.
