A portrait of Redskins defensive backs coach Torrian Gray

Vikings V Giants

Name: Torrian Gray

Title: Defensive Backs Coach

Experience: 7 years

Bio: This is Gray’s second season with the Washington Redskins. The seven years of NFL experience includes his time as a player, plus two years as an assistant defensive backs coach with the Bears over a decade ago. From 2006 through 2015, Gray was a member of the coaching staff of Virginia Tech, his alma mater (where he was a three-time All-Big-East safety). During his decade on staff in Blacksburg, the Hokies were statistically the second-best defensive unit against the pass in the entire nation, both in terms of yards per game and opponent passer rating. After leaving Tech, Gray spent one season as the defensive backs coach for the University of Florida before returning to the NFL to join the Redskins.

Fun Fact: Gray played 25 games in his NFL career, starting four. He recorded one interception and one fumble recovery during that time. The Vikings made the playoffs both of Gray’s seasons as a player.
