Redskins have hired Jay Gruden as their HC. Done deal.

Jay Gruden, the younger brother of current ESPN Monday Night football analyst, Jon, has led the Bengals to a playoff spot the last three season as their offensive coordinator. He was also a very successful Arena Football League player and coach. The 46-year-old brings a west-coast offense, which should excite both quarterback Robert Griffin III and running back Alfred Morris because it’s the same offense that former coach Mike Shanahan ran. Washington is coming off a 3-13 season.
It is expected that Jim Haslett and Sean McVay will run the defense and offense respectably.
