Washington Redskins Coach Jay Gruden has been fired, according to a person with knowledge of the situation who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

"Nobody's told me anything", Gruden said. Schottenheimer was sacked after going 8-8 in his only season in Washington.


Pittsburgh, which goes on the road to Los Angeles this coming weekend, will likely be without quarterback Mason Rudolph, who was knocked out of Sunday's loss in the fourth quarter with a concussion. Gruden became the sixth coach in team history to lead the Redskins to a playoff berth within the first two years at the helm, joining Ray Flaherty, Dutch Bergman, Dudley DeGroot, George Allen and Joe Gibbs. Under Snyder, the Redskins have finished first in the NFC East three times, including in 2015 with Gruden. Even as this season started off poorly, the players said they refused to quit. Seven-time Pro Bowl left tackle Trent Williams has held out all of this year, so far refusing to play for the team, because of frustration with its medical staff. The Redskins are averaging the third-fewest points, but are allowing the third-most points, per game. McCoy at least knew Gruden's offense well, but his right leg, which he broke in December, gave him problems in training camp, and he missed the first four games of the season. New England, bypassing Haskins, who relieved the injured Keenum in Week 4.

There have been reports that Gruden did not want Haskins, and that drafting him was either Allen or team owner Daniel Snyder's preference.


Asked why Snyder wasn't addressing fans, Allen said, "Because I am". When the Redskins hired him in 2014, they wanted him to help turn Robert Griffin III around.

Most importantly, one of the main factors that played into the decision by Los Angeles to hire McVay was the role played in helping Kirk Cousins develop, as the Rams hoped to see the same kind of success, if not better, with Goff.
