FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) - Former Redskins general manager Charley Casserly has joined the faculty at George Mason University.

Casserly will teach sport management classes, help coordinate the intern program and assist in career counseling for sport management program students. He'll also continue his duties as general manager for the CBS Television Network's NFL pre-game show.

Casserly started out as an intern and worked his way up the ranks in his 23-year career with the Redskins. After leaving the Redskins, he was GM of the Houston Texans.

The phrase, "Those who can't, teach", comes to mind.

I don't think that George Mason University has a football team....one reason he got the job probably.

That should be a fun class.

Casserly: "Now, are there any questions?"
Class student: "Yeah, why did you pass over VY and Reggie?"
Casserly: "Next question".

it's much easier to win when you back up a good QB. Now that Carr is a back up....he will finally be a winner in the NFL.
"I still firmly believe David Carr can be a winning quarterback in the NFL," Casserly said, moments after visiting with Carr.

Casserly said he believes the change of scenery will turn around Carr’s career and he thinks the quarterback made a smart move by taking a backup role with an established team.

My favorite part:

Things never worked out in Houston the way Carr and Casserly imagined, largely because the Texans never could assemble a decent offensive line, but Casserly still sings Carr’s praises.

uhhhh, shouldn't that read "largely because Casserly never could assemble a decent offensive line"?
