Does anyone want to coach the Redskins in 2019? Changes are coming to Jay Gruden's coaching staff, but so far it has only been people leaving, or trying to get out.
Defensive Backs Coach Torrian Gray was reportedly let go, but there have been no announcements besides their interest in Joe Woods to replace him. Special Teams Coordinator Ben Kotwica left the Redskins for the same position with the Atlanta Falcons. There have been rumors about Jim Tomsula and Bill Callahan leaving. And then there is the parade of people the Redskins have talked to about Defensive Coordinator Greg Manusky's job(Todd Bowles, Steve Wilks, Gregg Williams, Joe Woods?).
The latest possible exit to the Redskins coaching staff is Inside Linebackers Coach Kirk Olivadotti. Grant Paulsen reports he has been given permission to interview with the Green Bay Packers for the same position. The Redskins are the only NFL team Olivadotti has worked for, and he has been here for two stints. Grant Paulsen also reports that the Redskins have blocked some assistants from interviewing with other teams.
The Redskins continue their haphazard approach to changing their coaching staff. Manusky and Gray are stuck in limbo as multiple candidates are brought in to replace them. The problem is, does anyone want to coach the Redskins in 2019?
Redskins LB's coach Kirk Olivadotti was granted permission to interview for the same job with the Green Bay Packers, sources say. Could be the second Redskins assistant under contract to leave for another organization.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) January 16, 2019
Kirk Olivadotti is in his second stint with the Redskins. He was with the team from 2000 to 2010, when he worked briefly with new Packers HC Matt LaFleur. He has been with the team for a second run since 2014.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) January 16, 2019
I'm told the Redskins have indeed blocked some assistants from new opportunities this offseason. They aren't letting everybody interview elsewhere like they did in the cases of Ben Kotwika and Kirk Olivadotti. Picking their spots.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) January 16, 2019
