Redskins OL coach Bugel rejoins team two days after death of daughter
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Washington Redskins offensive line coach Joe Bugel worked Saturday's preseason game against Carolina, two days after his daughter died from a rare form of bone cancer.
A team spokesman said a private funeral was held for Holly Bugel on Friday in Arizona. Joe Bugel flew to Charlotte on Redskins owner Daniel Snyder's private plane and arrived Saturday afternoon.
Coach Jim Zorn said football has served as a welcome outlet for Bugel. His daughter, who was 36, was diagnosed with cancer three years ago.
