The Redskins have replaced another coach, this time on offense. Wes Phillips has been the Redskins Tight Ends Coach since 2014. His contract was up, and the Redskins have hired former Green Bay Packers TE coach Brian Angelichio to replace Phillips who is expected to join the Los Angeles Rams after the Super Bowl. He will join his father, DC Wade Phillips, and his former Offensive Coordinator, now Rams Head Coach, Sean McVay.
Brian Angelichio has coached professionally for the last 24 years. He got his first NFL job with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2012 coaching tight ends. He spent two seasons there and then moved on to the Cleveland Browns(2014-15), and then the Packers(2016-18).
Wes Phillips’ contract expired. Thus Redskins hires new tight ends coach. I’d be shocked if Wes doesn’t get a new job ASAP, and it could easily be with the Rams after the Super Bowl.— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) January 26, 2019
I’m told Wes Phillips’ contract had expired. Was offered an extension last year, but declined, wanting to explore other opportunities.— Mike Jones (@ByMikeJones) January 26, 2019
Wes was a QB in college. Really good coach who was somewhat out of position coaching TE's. Would be a great fit in LA.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) January 26, 2019
Angelichio was with GB the last few years. Coached in Cleveland under Kyle Shanahan in 2014. https://t.co/7lxnyzrLDH
Rams defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, on his son, Wes, who is Washington's tight ends coach: "Wes is a young offensive coach who knows Sean McVay, if anyone is looking for a head coach."— Rich Hammond (@Rich_Hammond) January 17, 2019
