Under Gruden the team only made the playoffs on one occasion and his record with the team stands at 35-49-1. The AP quotes Redskins President Bruce Allen:

"To make a decision like this is difficult, but it was necessary. Our 0-5 start is not just disappointing. We had much different expectations for the beginning of the season. We owe it to our fans, ... the organization, the players, the coaches and their families to do everything we can to win."
