Skins Get Spags Game Room He’s Always Wanted

Mike Garafolo of the NEWARK STAR-LEDGER reports that Steve Spagnuolo, courted for the better part of two days by the Washington Redskins for their vacant head coaching job, will be returning next season as the Giants defensive coordinator.

Bob LaMonte, Spagnuolo’s agent, today confirmed the decision to stay with the Giants and rebuff the Redskins earlier this morning.

Spagnuolo never had any intention of taking the Redskins job, since he would have little say in assistant coach hires and personnel decisions. His interest in the gig was limited to using the courtship to get a raise, which he did (a new three-year contract for more than $2 million per year).

Dan Steinberg of the WASHINGTON POST defends Dan Snyder in all of this, kinda sorta. Also, we’ve still got our money on Pete Carroll.
