Update: Raiders announce Scott Turner has been hired as their Pass Game Coordinator

The Washington Commanders fired Offensive Coordinator Scott Turner after he finished his third season with the team. Head Coach Ron Rivera said he needed to move in a different direction, and expectations weren't met this season. Washington missed the playoffs for the second season in a row, and hasn't posted a winning record under Rivera.

Scott Turner will reportedly be joining the Las Vegas Raiders coaching staff under Head Coach Josh McDaniels. Jeremy Fowler reports it will either be a senior or pass game coordinator position under OC Mick Lombardi.

Washington is still searching for Turner's replacement. They have already interviewed 6 potential OCs, and are waiting to interview Kansas City Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy, who will face the Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl next Sunday.
