Redskins are Uncoordinated - So What

It’s been a week of angst in Washington, D.C. over filling vacant positions. Not the cabinet for incoming President Donald Trump. Redskin coordinators – we a’int got none. The firing of Joe Barry and 30 year old Sean McVay’s move to Los Angeles to become the youngest head coach in NFL history has left the Redskins without a defensive or offensive coordinator as I bang this out on the keyboard. And unlike the old days (not the good old days) when Dan Snyder’s checkbook got them anybody they wanted, the Redskins reported list of candidates, particularly for defensive coordinator, is drying up quickly.

Wade Phillips, who may or may not have wanted to come here two years ago when Barry was hired and helped Denver win a Super Bowl in the meantime, is joining McVay in LA. Former Jaguars coach Gus Bradley and former Browns coach Mike Pettine were both interviewed at Redskins Park, but left without jobs, by either their choosing or the Redskins. Carolina’s secondary coach Steve Wilks has moved up to defensive coordinator, which takes his name off the board. The Redskins wanted to talk to Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther, but were turned down. Linebackers coach Greg Manusky could be moved up to defensive coordinator if they don’t get their man. And as for offensive coordinator, it’s still early with McVay introduced only Friday by the Rams, but they may not even bother with a search. CSN Mid-Atlantic is reporting that Matt Cavanaugh will be moved from quarterbacks coach to offensive coordinator. And Chris Cooley tells us that Jay Gruden will likely call the plays.
