Reports have been coming out all day about possible changes to the Redskins coaching staff under Ron Rivera. Multiple people are reporting that interim Head Coach and former OL coach Bill Callahan is not returning as expected. Most of the Redskins defensive staff won't be returning either. Rivera has hired Jack Del Rio as the Redskins new defensive coordinator and he will soon start filling out his new staff.
Several offensive coaches, special teams coaches, and strength and Conditioning coaches are getting interviewed by Ron Rivera today.
