Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports continues to hear from sources that the top candidate for Redskins defensive coordinator is former Jaguars HC Gus Bradley.
However, La Canfora adds that Bradley still has a standing offer to run Anthony Lynn’s defense if he gets a head-coaching job with the Bills being a “very viable” possibility for Lynn.
This fits with a report from Mike Garafolo of NFL Media, who mentioned that Brady is atop the Redskins’ list of defensive coordinator candidates and know GM Scot McCloughan well from their time together in Seattle.
Washington officially parted ways with DC Joe Barry on Wednesday and a few other assistant coaches.
One thing worth noting about Bradley is that he has employed a 4-3 base defense, which means the Redskins could be open to some big changes in 2017.
We’ve seen a number of names tossed out in connection to the Redskins’ defensive coordinator vacancy including Broncos DC Wade Phillips, former Jaguars HC Gus Bradley, Bengals DC Paul Guenther, Rams DC Gregg Williams, Redskins OLB Greg Manusky and Panthers DBs coach Steve Wilks.
Bradley, 50, was hired by the Jaguars back in 2013 after he spent four years with the Seahawks. In four years with the Jaguars, Bradley produced a record of 14-47 (23 percent) and no playoff appearances. The Jaguars’ most wins under Bradley was five from last year.
We’ll have more regarding the Redskins’ defensive coordinator job as the news is available.
