"When the call came, I was in bed at about 2 o'clock in the morning," Bugel says. "My wife starts screaming, hollering, laughing. He told me, 'Joe, we're going back home.' I said, 'When do you want me there?' He says, 'Tomorrow.' It took me three seconds to pack."
I got the call around that same time a few days later from a friend of mine. He said "how excited are you? Gibbs is back!!" It was 0200 and I thought he was just drunk so I hung up on him.In his second tenure with the Redskins, Bugel’s group led the way for a 1,000-yard rusher for five consecutive seasons (2004-08) and offensive tackle Chris Samuels went to the Pro Bowl four times under Bugel’s tutelage.
