Following in the footsteps of the New York Giants, who brought in Ben McAdoo to take over the offense this week, the Washington Redskins have a new offensive coordinator. Unlike the Giants, they found their new OC from within the organization.
According to reports, the team informed tight ends coach Sean McVay that he’d been promoted to coordinator on Tuesday. McVay replaces Kyle Shanahan, who was fired by the team back on December 30 of last year, the same day his dad was canned by owner Daniel Snyder.
At the tender age of 27, McVay’s coaching career began in Tampa Bay, where he was hired as a offensive assistant back in 2008. He left the NFL for the 2009 season, taking over as a quality control and receivers coach for the United Football League’s Florida Tuskers.
McVay came to Washington as an offensive assistant in 2010, and was promoted to tight ends coach, where he’s been since, the following year.
