ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - The Washington Redskins have promoted Sean McVay to offensive coordinator, a move expected after Jay Gruden was hired last week as coach.
McVay was one of the assistants retained after coach Mike Shanahan was fired earlier this month. He has spent four seasons with the Redskins, the last three as tight ends coach.
The 27-year-old McVay was an assistant in 2008 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, when he served on the same staff as Gruden. McVay was also the tight ends coach for the UFL's Florida Tuskers in 2009 when Gruden was the team's offensive coordinator.
The Redskins on Wednesday also hired Brian Baker as outside linebackers coach. He held the same role this season with the Cleveland Browns, his seventh team in 18 years as an NFL assistant.
