Steve Spurrier, Redskins
After years of floundering following their 1992 Super Bowl, the Redskins seemed to have finally righted the ship under Marty Schottenheimer in 2001, winning eight of their final eleven games. That wasn't good enough for owner Daniel Snyder, however, who fired Schottenheimer and brought in Steve Spurrier. To get the popular college coach, Snyder gave him an outlandish 5-year, $25 million contract. He lasted only two years, went 12-20, and then returned to the college ranks.—Johnny Goodtimes (AP Photo/Donna McWilliam)
