Tracking Washington’s Head Coach/Front Office search

Josh Harris interviewed five candidates for the new head of football operations position over two days earlier this week at his house in Miami. An announcement was expected this week, with San Francisco 49ers AGM Adam Peters considered the favorite to get the job, but Washington also interviewed Chicago Bears AGM Ian Cunningham for the final round.

Washington is also conducting a head coaching search, and they have been linked to 8 candidates. One coach that was loosely linked to Washington was Bill Belichick. He is done with the New England Patriots and still wants to coach. Multiple reporters have said Washington has no interest in hiring him, but the speculation will continue until he gets another job or Washington hires their new coach.

The Patriots moved on from Belichick quickly, hiring his former inside linebackers coach Jerod Mayo. That means one of the 8 heading coaching positions has been filled. Washington didn’t request to interview Mayo, but could expand their prospect list when the new head of football operations is hired.

Stay tuned for the latest updates as they happen
