It has finally happened.

Not long after The Fan celebrated Bruce Allen’s 10-year anniversary with the Redskins, owner Daniel Snyder fired the team president Monday. 

The longtime front office executive was relieved of his duties following the team’s loss to the Cowboys on Sunday, leaving the team with a 3-13 record to end the 2019 regular season. Snyder’s announcement Monday said Allen is “no longer with the organization,” ending speculation that Snyder might keep Allen in the front office in a different role.

The news was seemingly a late holiday gift for Redskins fans. 

106.7 The Fan’s Craig Hoffman anticipates the team will hire Ron Rivera to be its next coach and fill its front office once that deal is finalized.

NBC Sports Washington's JP Finlay said in addition to hiring a new coach, the team could make changes to its training staff. 

Nonetheless, it appears the fan base was quite energized for a Monday morning.
