Yes! I was able to detect the senility and old man stench of Huff thru the radio. I've heard CC won't be in the booth full time but perhaps sprinkled in like Doc.

I wonder if Doc wants in the booth himself?

He's going to do something called Cooley's Corner at the top of each quarter

SS, how well does something like that pay ,I realize it's not what he had before but I am a little curious?

Probably a low 6 figures is what he's getting

Re: Chris Cooley retires, will join Redskins' radio team

Glad he made it official so we know and so he can move onto a successful post-playing days career.

One of my favorite Skins of all time.

I'm glad he finished his career without suiting up for anyone else.

Regardless of his personal life, he's still one of my favorite Redskins, so I'm happy knowing he'll be adding a fresh perspective to the radio, even though I never listen to the radio.

Re: Chris Cooley retires, will join Redskins' radio team

Cooley is just always going to be a Skins' fan favorite. He consistently returned the love he got from the fans. I wouldn't be surprised if he becomes the "voice of the Skins" in the next few years.

Re: Chris Cooley retires, will join Redskins' radio team

Joe- that would be awesome. Larry just doesn't have that great voice for calling the home run plays. Cooley I imagine would be awesome in that role.

SS- I would imagine that CC would make a heck of a color commentator one day if he can work on his craft.

He has that personality that would generate some funny stuff.

I think Larry does a great job on play-by-play.

Cooley would make a good sidekick to do the color alongside Larry. I respect Huff and the now-retired Sonny J., but they are not very exciting to listen to on the radio. I think a young, fan favorite like Cooley would really do wonders for the broadcasts.

I dunno, could he really be worse than Huff these last few years? From what I have seen he is pretty rough around the edges right now. Given that and his apparent party ethic, I can see how he may never be professional enough to do more than part-time features on local radio.

If he could pull it together enough, however, he would undoubtedly be a fan favorite and probably provide at least a short term ratings bump.

Re: Chris Cooley retires, will join Redskins' radio team

I remember when I would turn down the TV to listen to Sam, Sonny and Herzog. I haven't done that for a while.

BTW - I got no qualms w/ Larry Michael on game day. It's just everywhere else that I find him annoying.
