Redskins fire Head Coach Jay Gruden

Redskins fire HC Jay Gruden

Following a 33-7 loss to the Patriots, Jay Gruden was fired, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. The team later confirmed the report and issued the following statement:

“Through the first five games of the 2019 season, the team has clearly not performed up to expectations, and we all share in that responsibility. Moving forward we are committed to doing all that we can collectively as an organization to turn things around and give our Redskins fans and alumni a team they can be proud of in 2019 and beyond.”


Gruden was called to the team’s facility in Ashburn for a 5 a.m. meeting Monday by owner Daniel Snyder and team president Bruce Allen, who informed him of the decision.

Bill Callahan, previously the team’s offensive line and assistant head coach, will take over as interim head coach, per the Washington Post.
