NFL: Redskins offensive line coach Joe Bugel retires
ASHBURN, Va. — The leader of the original “Hogs” is retiring.
Washington Redskins offensive line coach Joe Bugel is stepping down after more than three decades in the NFL.
Bugel coached the dominant Redskins offensive line that became known as the “Hogs” in the 1980s, during Joe Gibbs’ first stint as head coach. Washington won two Super Bowls while Bugel was with the team.
Bugel later became a head coach with the Cardinals and Raiders. He returned to Washington in 2004 when Gibbs came out of retirement.
Bugel’s retirement had been expected. He turns 70 in March, and new Redskins coach Mike Shanahan is overhauling the staff.
