According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden could end up emerging as the top head coaching candidate for the Washington Redskins.
Redskins general manager Bruce Allen has told others he plans to interview 10-12 candidates for his coaching opening, then re-interview two-or-three finalists. Several of the most intriguing candidates are not eligible to be explored until this week with their teams playing in the divisional round. Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden is among the top names on their list, sources said, and Allen’s relationship working with Gruden’s older brother, Jon, could end up being a positive factor in the process.
What’s really interesting is that the Redskins are very appealing to Gruden, per La Canfora’s sources.
