Redskins Interviewing Gus Bradley For Defensive Coordinator Job

John Keim of ESPN is reporting that the Redskins are bringing in former Jaguars HC Gus Bradley for an interview on Wednesday for their defensive-coordinator vacancy.

Keim points out that Bradley has ties to Redskins GM Scot McCloughan from their time together in Seattle and has also worked with HC Jay Gruden and president Bruce Allen while they were together in Tampa Bay.

Earlier in the week, the Redskins interviewed former Browns HC Mike Pettine for the job and they have also requested permission to interview Panthers secondary coach Steve Wilks.

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports previously mentioned that sources around the league consider Bradley to be the top candidate for Redskins’ defensive coordinator position. 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.

Washington officially parted ways with DC Joe Barry last week along with 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.

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.
