Redskins assistant Joe Bugel, who spent 15 of his 32 NFL seasons coaching with the team, announced his retirement on Wednesday.

Bugel was regarded as one of the best offensive coaches of his era, and he was the former head coach of the Phoenix Cardinals and Oakland Raiders.

Best known for coaching and leading the Redskins' "Hogs" offensive line, Bugel most recently worked with former Redskins head coach Jim Zorn. But Bugel was best known for his work with Joe Gibbs, both in the 1980s as his offensive sidekick and in Gibbs' second tenure with the team.

Bugel began as the Redskins' offensive coordinator in 1981 and was promoted to assistant head coach in 1983. Under Bugel's direction, the Redskins scored a then-NFL record 541 points (1983), had four 1,000-yard rushers, one 4,000-yard passer and nine 1,000-yard receivers.

He also spent more than a decade coaching college football before coming to the NFL in 1975 with the Lions.
