Redskins add assistants Foerster, Burney, Slowik to coaching staff

ASHBURN, Va. -- The Washington Redskins have hired Chris Foerster to be their offensive line coach, replacing the retired Joe Bugel.

The Redskins also added two other assistants to head coach Mike Shanahan's staff Thursday: defensive line coach Jacob Burney and defensive backs coach Bob Slowik.

Foerster coached San Francisco's offensive line the past two years. He takes over a Redskins unit that was constantly shuffled last season because of injuries and ineffectiveness.

Foerster was Miami's offensive coordinator for one season, and coached the offensive line with Baltimore from 2005-07 and Tampa Bay from 1996-2001.

Burney worked for Shanahan from 2002-08 with Denver. Slowik was there from 2005-08, including two seasons as defensive coordinator.
