March 5, 1993: Glory Era Ends in D.C., Gibbs Resigns

March 5, 1993: Glory Era Ends in D.C., Gibbs Resigns

On March 5, 1993, Joe Gibbs shocked the nation’s capital.  The celebrated coach resigned after 12 seasons in D.C., a period that featured three Super Bowl wins, eight playoff appearances and a phenomenal .680 winning percentage.  In a press conference at Redskins Park, he admitted not feeling well during the last half of the 1992 season but denied suffering “burnout” from his legendary 100-hour work weeks.  Gibbs, then in his 2nd season of owning “Joe Gibbs Racing,” said he wanted to spend more time with his family.  But he left open the possibility of someday returning to coaching.  Redskins owner Jack Kent Cooke immediately named long-time Skins defensive coordinator Richie Petitbon as Gibbs’ replacement.
