Redskins Legacy: Pardee Followed George Allen To Washington


Jack Pardee knew it was time.

When George Allen was fired as the Los Angeles Rams’ coach after the 1970 season, Pardee told himself he was done in L.A., where he’d starred for 13 seasons as a Rams linebacker. He was either going to retire or play for Allen again at his next coaching stop.

That would be the Nation’s Capital. Soon after becoming the Redskins’ coach in January 1971, Allen traded for Pardee, who played two seasons in D.C., before retiring. In his 15-year career, he was consistently one of the best outside linebackers in the NFL. He later coached the Redskins for three seasons (1978-80), posting a 24-24 mark.
