Learn a little about the Redskins’ Defensive Coordinator in this profile

NFL: Washington Redskins at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Greg Manusky

Title: Defensive Coordinator

Experience: 30 years

Bio: That “30 years” isn’t a typo. Greg Manusky enters his fourth decade in the NFL in 2018. This will be his third year of his current stint as a member of the Redskins’ coaching staff. He replaced Joe Barry as defensive coordinator after the conclusion of the 2016 season.

Returning to the Skins was a homecoming of sorts for Manusky, who began his lengthy playing career in Washington as a linebacker from 1988 through 1990. After retiring as a player following the 1999 season, Manusky’s first NFL coaching job was also with the Redskins, as he joined Marty Schottenheimer’s staff as the team’s linebackers coach.

After spending time on the staffs of the Chargers, 49ers, Chargers (again), and Colts, he spent 2016 as the Redskins’ Outside Linebackers Coach before resuming the coordinator duties he had in San Francisco, San Diego, and Indianapolis.

Fun Fact: Manusky is the second-longest-tenured player to come out of Colgate in the history of the NFL. The only Colgate alum who enjoyed a career longer than Manusky’s 12 seasons was Eugene Robinson, who played 16 years.
