    A non-sports friend of mine in the business sent me an e-mail saying that Jason Reid was going to the Post from the L.A. Times to cover the Redskins and asking if that was a coup.

    Anybody know if this is indeed the case?

    thebiglead had this info within the past couple of days; it was mentioned on the damon hack to SI thread.
    but yes, this is true.

    I think we had this on the Damon Hack thread... Needless to say, it appears to be true...

    A coup for who?

    That might be the most brutal beat in professional sports...

    Sorry, all. Been away a few days -- up in the Alexandria/D.C. area, coincidentally -- and missed it on the other thread.

    If you succeed on that beat you'll be at SI or ESPN within a few years, but I would imagine that covering the Skins for the WP would be a colossal pain in the ass given the relationship between Snyder and the paper...

    Jason just became a daddy, hope he isn't distracted on a new beat.

    Tough period for NYT: Deputy sports editor Kristin Huckshorn bolts for ESPN and now Hack. The latter might be missed more, from what I hear.

    The paper is by no means a colossal pain in the ass.

    Snyder, on the other hand... :)

    That's what I meant... Garcia-Ruiz is a great SE.

    But that is a volatile relationship between the paper and the team...
