The Redskins will interview their OLB Coach Greg Manusky for their vacant Defensive Coordinator position on Tuesday. After Joe Barry was fired, Greg Manusky was one of only two of Barry’s assistants to be retained (the other being ILB Coach Kirk Olivadotti).
Manusky can now be added to a list that already includes Gus Bradley, Mike Pettine, Rob Ryan, and Jason Tarver as guys who have already or are lined up to interview with the Redskins for the position.
The Redskins are taking their time with this process and have said they’ll interview seven or eight candidates. Of the five already listed, Bradley appears to be in highest demand as he’s wanted in LA with new HC Anthony Lynn and has also been tapped as the #1 priority in SF if Tom Cable is hired as the HC there.
Manusky began his coaching career in Washington as the LB Coach for the ‘Skins back in ‘01. He was a DC in the league from 2007 to 2015 with three teams (San Diego, San Francisco, and Indy). He also played LB for the Redskins from 1988 to 1990.
Manusky has ties to current GM Scot McCloughan from their time together in SF (2007-2009). He also has ties to Jim Tomsula, who’s been rumored as a potential coaching target for the ‘Skins, as well as Jason Tarver, another DC candidate who will interview later this week. Both men coached with Manusky in SF.
