Seven Redskins Assistant Coaches Keep job, for now
- Updated: December 31, 2013
After the smoke settled from the firing of Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan on Monday seven Redskins assistant coaches were left standing, for now. It’s not an uncommon thing for teams to keep assistants around before ushering a new staff in, a lot of times the left overs key the new staff in on current players. Just because the coaches were not fired does not mean they will return next season, in all likelihood most, if not all, will be removed upon the hiring of the next football coach.
Those who survived the day are as follows: defensive coordinator Jim Haslett, secondary coach Raheem Morris, defensive line coach Jacob Burney, offensive line coach Chris Foerster, assistant offensive line coach Chris Morgan, running backs coach Bobby Turner and tight ends coach Sean McVay. It is still possible that a couple of these guys will stick around with a new regime.
The assistants who were fired Monday, along with coach Mike Shanahan were: offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, special teams coach Keith Burns, advance scout Larry Coyer, quarterbacks coach Matt LaFleur, coaching assistant Richmond Flowers and receivers coach Mike McDaniel, linebackers coach Bob Slowik and defensive assistant Bobby Slowik.
