It’s still a week and a half until the Redskins take the field in Richmond for training camp.
But in the meantime the front office is in chaos:
According to Chris Russell, Redskins insider for 106.7 The Fan in D.C., Dan Snyder’s organization has seen a “mass exodus of employees in 2019.”
“I’ve been told this by multiple, multiple people. Almost 40 people have left, behind the scenes. We’re not talking about football players or coaches or anything like that. … Nobody wants to work there. It’s a terrible culture.”
The Redskins fired President of Business Operations and COO Brian Lafemina in December less than eight months after hiring him. Chief Marketing Officer Steve Ziff, Senior VP of Consumer Sales Jake Bye, and Chief Commercial Officer Todd Kline also left the organization.
“Nobody wants to work there. Nobody believes in the direction and the leadership of that franchise.”
