Redskins Promote Mike McDaniel to Wide Receivers Coach

The Redskins have promoted offensive assistant Mike McDaniel to wide receivers coach.

The Redskins announced Saturday via a press release that they will be promoting from within the organization to fill Ike Hilliard’s spot as wide receivers coach.

Mike McDaniel, who served for two years as the team’s offensive assistant, will now take the reigns at wide receivers coach. Prior to working in Washington, McDaniel served on the Houston Texans staff alongside current Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, and worked closely with receivers such as Andre Johnson.

“Mike has a proven track record from his time in Houston and his time here in Washington,” Executive Vice President/Head Coach Mike Shanahan said in a press release. “I look forward to having him lead our receivers.”

In 2012, the Redskins led the NFL in yards per pass attempt (8.29) and were second in the league in average yards after the catch (6.1). The team also recorded seven receptions for 50 yards or more.

After witnessing one of the most explosive seasons on offense this franchise has seen in years, keeping the same guys around on the sideline is likely a big part of the recipe for continued success moving the football.
