New Redskins LBs coach Rob Ryan said the Packers’ decision to hire Kirk Olivadotti led to him reaching out to Washington about a job.
“I reached out,” Ryan said, via NBC Washington. “I’ve been a long admirer of them, and I kept my eye on them.”
Ryan added that he has a great deal of respect for Redskins HC Jay Gruden.
“So much respect for Jay Gruden for years,” Ryan said. “I’ve interviewed twice I’ve wanted to be there so bad. First time didn’t work out, but this time, I’m so happy to be joining him. Him and Greg [Manusky], these guys, they make you feel like you just want to go in there and do something and be a little part of their success.”
