The Redskins have added another coach with experience coaching QBs to the offensive coaching staff.  Dave Ragone was a QB from Lousiville who was drafted by the Houston Texans in the 3rd round of the 2003 draft. He was in the NFL for 3 seasons as a backup and spent a season in NFL Europe. He floated from the Bengals and then was traded to the St. Louis Rams before leaving the league prior to the 2006 season.

Ragone began his coaching career in the UFL with the Hartford Colonials in 2010 as a QBs coach.  He was hired by the Tennessee Titans the following year as a WRs coach and held that position for two seasons.  In 2013 he started coaching the quarterbacks, but only had that position for 1 year before being fired following the 2013 season.  He was not coaching in the NFL last season.

Ragone will work with new QBs coach Matt Cavanaugh and Offensive Coordinator Sean McVay.  McVay coached the QBs along with Head Coach Jay Gruden last season, but the Gruden decided to hire a coach specifically for QBs after his first year in Washington. Gruden admitted he took on more responsibilities than he should have in his first year, but he will still be calling plays this season.  At the Combine, Gruden stated that Robert Griffin III will enter the offseason as the #1 QB, and they also have Kirk Cousins under contract for the 2015 season.  Colt McCoy is a free agent in less than two weeks, and it's possible he could return for another year, but not definite.
