Redskins Add Foerster, Slowik To Staff

The Redskins hired San Fransisco's Chris Foerster to be the team's new offensive line coach, replacing the legendary Joe Bugel after Bugel retired this past week.

Also, the 'Skins finalized a deal with Bob Slowik to coach the defensive backs. Slowik coached the Denver Broncos' defensive backs for two seasons (2005-06) and then became defensive coordinator from 2007-08 under Mike Shanahan when Shanny was heading up the Broncs.

So the 'Skins have just two spots left to fill on the staff. Special teams coach Danny Smith is expected to be retained but there is no official word on that yet. And there has been a name mentioned for the wide receivers coaching job (Richard Mann, the Buccaneers WR coach who was recently let go).

Coming up this weekend: I'm beginning a series on the 2009 Redskins and reviewing their roster. Following that we'll address team needs position by position. And I'll be breaking down the draft and free agency.
