After starting the season 0-5 the Washington Redskins have decided to fire head coach Jay Gruden. Dan Graziano broke the news earlier this morning.
The move was highly anticipated after their beat down by the New England Patriots. Gruden never found success in Washington and finishes with a record of 35-49-1.
The Redskins failure can’t solely be placed on Gruden. The front office have done a bad job to put together a winning squad. Add to that the injuries to QB Alex Smith and RB Derrius Guice, the holdout of star LT Trent Williams, and other locker room issues. This season was lost before it got going.
Bill Callahan will replace Gruden as interim coach. Fun fact, Callahan replaced Jay’s brother, Jon Gruden, when he was first let go by the Raiders in 2002.
