Redskins Won’t Start Coaching Search Until After Season


According to Adam Schefter, the Redskins will wait until the end of the 2019 season to start their coaching search in earnest. 

Schefter says Washington will evaluate interim HC Bill Callahan and OC Kevin O’Connell for the rest of the season to see if they’re worth retaining similar to when the Browns promoted interim OC Freddie Kitchens to head coach after last season. 

Washington fired HC Jay Gruden after the team dropped to 0-5 to start the season. Schefter adds that Gruden could join his brother Jon Gruden with the Raiders, who do happen to have an opening at quarterback coach. 

So far, the Redskins have been most linked to Steelers HC Mike Tomlin, who is reportedly atop team owner Dan Snyder’s list of candidates, though Washington likely would have to trade for Tomlin from Pittsburgh.

Other speculative candidates that have been mentioned include Buccaneers DC Todd Bowles and Jets DC Gregg Williams
