I think he just retired after that.

But when I watched the games back then it never really looked like he was enjoying himself as head coach.

The stories I've heard from players/personnel who were with the team at the time were that several players were upset with the treatment he gave certain veterans like Art Monk, Earnest Byner, Mark Rypien (basically singling them out and making them earn their spots-like Marty did with DG); Petitbon and Casserly clashed a lot. Petitbon had been hoping he'd get the Bears job that year because he didn't want to deal with Casserly anymore, though at the time he was going for the Bears job he didn't know he'd be the Redskins head coach soon. Casserly didn't have quite the same problems with Petitbon but was upset that Petitbon was calling Casserly out at Redskins Park for not giving Petitbon a good enough team to work with. And finally, Petitbon was furious he was fired for a former Cowboy. Thought that was a slap in the face and for many years (maybe even still today) wanted nothing to do with the Redskins.
That's really sad. The hiring of Norvelle will always be associated w/a dark time in our beloved team's history to me, much more so than Petitbon's dismal 93 season.

Not exactly. He's the guy who inherited an aging team that was ripe for a 4-12 downfall. Before his one season at the helm, Richie was the best D-coordinator we ever had, and that includes Gregg Williams and Marvin Lewis.

If you think he coached a gem against Elway in Super Bowl XXII, take another look at what he did to Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas, and Andre Reed in Super Bowl XXVI. That Bills team was basically "The Greatest Show on Turf" for that era, and Petibon's scheme battered them that day. Kelly was picked off 4 times, and Thomas, who led the league in yards from scrimmage, was held to 40 total yards. That game wasn't nearly as close at the 37-24 final score, with the Bills getting two TD's in garbage time after the Skins took a 37-10 lead going into the 4th quarter. I will always remember that defensive game plan as Petibon's Masterpiece.

What is it was Casserly? Did he get along with anyone?

The worst was James Washington and Alvin Harper. Simply awful.

IMO Ritchie might be one of the best defensive coordinators ever. If there was a HOF for assistants he'd be in there.

That whole time period makes me wanna vomit. When James Washington bowed down to all the Cowboys after they won that year. Pathetic.

No kidding. He makes people mad now as a commentator too. He seems so damn sure of himself. Or rather he always seems pretty convinced that he's right. A very declarative person. That has to rub football people in the wrong way.

Re: What happened to Richie Petibon? I love youtube

That video got me into searching for more Redskins videos on YouTube. I found the videos to the 1991 NFC Playoff game between the Washington Redskins and the Atlanta Falcons. I thought it was funny how Jerry Glanville tried to intimidate the Redskins by sending the entire team out for the coin toss, instead of picking a few captains. And then of course the 'Skins go on to beat the Falcons.

Just think of the money that the NFL could make if they would make as many of the past games available to the public as they have in their archives. Lord knows I would purchase as many games from the 80's as I possibly could!

Man, I long for the time where we could dominate on defense like we did in those Super Bowls. Controlling the line of scrimmage was certainly not a problem then...
