The Washington Redskins have reportedly found their replacement for Perry Fewell. Torrian Gray will join new Defensive Coordinator Greg Manusky’s staff as the DBs coach, a position he has held in the NFL and college since 2000. Gray played safety at Virginia Tech from 1992-1996 and was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in the 2nd round of the 1997 draft. He only lasted two seasons with the Vikings as a backup before starting his coaching career.
Gray coached DBs at the University of Maine(2000) and Connecticut(2001-2003) before getting his first shot in the NFL with the Chicago Bears(2004-2005). He returned to his alma mater and coached the Hokies from 2006-2015, coaching players like Kendall Fuller, Kyshoen Jarrett, and many more who made it to the NFL. He joined Florida’s coaching staff last year, and will now get a chance in the NFL again with the Redskins.

Torrian Gray is a great DB coach pickup by the Redskins. His players at VT and UF consistently make an early impact with great technique.— Ian Wharton (@NFLFilmStudy) February 4, 2017
