UPDATE: Scott Turner will be the Redskins OC

The Redskins have 3 of their top 4 coaching jobs locked up. Ron Rivera is the new Head Coach. He hired Jack Del Rio as his defensive coordinator and retained Nate Kaczor as special teams coordinator. The big question since he was hired was who would he hire to run his offense?

Kevin O'Connell took over for Matt Cavanaugh as the Redskins Offensive Coordinator last season. Jay Gruden was fired after going 0-5, and Bill Callahan took over as the interim HC. O'Connell reportedly wasn't given full control of the offense until the final few weeks of the season.

Rivera has interviewed O'Connell several times since being hired, but hasn't retained him for the OC position. He also interviewed his former QB Coach Scott Turner last Friday. There are a lot of rumors floating around that Turner will be the choice at OC when the dust settles.
