A carousel that is fitting for Snyder and Allen
Redskins fans woke up Saturday morning to the news that Jordan Reed, Jeremy Sprinkle, and company will be coached by someone new in 2019. Brian Angelichio will be on the Redskins sideline as the new Tight Ends coach this upcoming season with Wes Phillips contract not being renewed. It is speculated that Wes will be joining his father, Wade Phillips, on the Rams staff once their offseason begins.
Brian Angelichio has been a Tight Ends coach in the NFL since the 2012 season when he was with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was most recently with the Green Bay Packers from 2016-2018.
This news is coming off the Redskins hiring Ray Horton as their new Defensive Backs coach with the departure of Torrian Gray.
In addition to parting ways with Gray, the Redskins also let their 2018 Special Teams Coordinator, Ben Kotwica, leave for the same position in Atlanta. The Redskins followed that up by signing Nate Kaczor who was previously the Special Teams Coordinator for Tampa Bay.
The Redskins have been busy in the coaching department this offseason with having formal conversations with Todd Bowles and Gregg Williams about joining the burgundy and gold for the upcoming season. There was speculation that they would replace Greg Manusky as Defensive Coordinator. However, that did not seem to be the case as Manusky was a part of those conversations according to President Bruce Allen. Bowles and Williams chose to take the Buccaneers and New York Jets Defensive Coordinator positions respectively.
The 2019 season will be the most important one for lame duck Head Coach Jay Gruden. Many speculate that his contract will not be renewed after this year if the Redskins do not win the NFC East.
