Another coach is reportedly out at Redskins Park, but we still haven't heard anything official from the organization. Defensive Backs Coach Torrian Gray was reportedly let go earlier in the week as the Redskins search for a replacement for him and possibly for his boss Greg Manusky.
Today the Atlanta Falcons announced they have hired Redskins Special Teams Coordinator Ben Kotwica. The Redskins reportedly let Kotwica seek other opportunities. He has been with Jay Gruden for the past 5 years.

The rumors for other coaching changes continue to swirl out of Ashburn. Greg Manusky has been on the hot seat for a while and the Redskins brought in former New York Jets Head Coach Todd Bowles to discuss potential openings. Bowles isn't coming here, but that was only one name. Gregg Williams was fired by the Browns today, but he's already been theough the cycle here...
Assistant Head Coach/Offensive Line Coach Bill Callahan is another name that keeps coming up when potential coaching changes are discussed. There was a report today that Callahan works his guys too hard which is simply unacceptable on a Jay Gruden-run team.
Defensive Line Coach Jim Tomsula could also be on his way out. He is considered one of the top posirion coaches in the NFL, but he is linked with Manusky and could follow him out the door.
One name that doesn't get mentioned? Offensive Coordinator Matt Cavanaugh. Has anyone figured out what he does here yet?
The #Redskins were ravaged by injuries all along the offensive line. Part of the problem, @CraigHoffman says, is Bill Callahan "putting them through so many extra reps." https://t.co/ZtLCQozb67— 106.7 The Fan (@1067theFan) January 9, 2019
Bill Callahan and Jim Tomsula could be next to flee Redskins Park, per @Russellmania621: "What I was told at the time was they are done, they are tired of the three-ring circus. They don't want to be here." https://t.co/RZNdMmFnx0— Chris Lingebach (@ChrisLingebach) January 10, 2019
