Jerry Gray heading to Washington?

NFL Networks Adam Schefter just reported on NFL Total Access that Jerry Gray leading coaching candidate for the Bills before Dick Jauron was named head coach might be coming to Washington to play a "Minor Coaching role". If this is true Snyder is going crazy with these coaches.

Re: Jerry Gray heading to Washington?

I did some research on Gray he was Buffalo's Defensive Coordinator under Mularkey he was also a candidate for a couple head coaching positions in 2006. I think that Gray might have some ties to GW and maybe were bringing Gray in to replace Walker as DBS coach. This is interesting.

Re: Jerry Gray heading to Washington?

He and Williams have ties to each other. While I'd like to keep Walker and maintain the continuity we've had the past coupe of years on defense, this would be a decent pickup.

http://www.houstontexans.com/news/ne...php?PRKey=2334

(on the advantage of being the only defensive coach interviewed so far) I think so. Those guys know that Gregg Williams and I worked very well together. Gregg Williams did a great a job and has always done a great job the last couple years. When I was with him or when weve been separate, I like what he does and I think they want to get the guy that can come in here and help their team.

http://www.nfl.com/teams/story/BUF/4419004
(Interview with Gregg Williams)

The person who's come into your shoes is defensive coordinator Jerry Gray. How's he doing in that position in Buffalo?
"I think he's growing each and every day. I've been very proud of how he has installed the system and how he has dealt every day with the players. He has a tremendous credibility with our players because he was a great player in the league and he has the ability to be authoritative as a coach, but also be seen as a players' coach because he played the game."

Before you got the job, did you know that you wanted Jerry as your defensive coordinator?
"Jerry played for me when I was a secondary coach, in 1992. At that time, when he came in and helped teach a bunch of young players that we had on our team, he was teaching a bunch of young defensive backs that we had just recently drafted.

"I knew that if he was ever stupid enough to be a coach, I wanted him to coach with me, and when we brought him into our coaching circle at (Houston), we started him at the very bottom, as a defensive assistant/quality control coach, which handles all the scouting and computer breakdowns and such, and have moved him up at each and every stage.

"This is the final move as he progresses on to be a head football coach. I really believe that Jerry Gray can be a head coach in the National Football League or in Division I, whichever he puts his mind to doing."

Re: Jerry Gray heading to Washington?

If we lose Walker it would not surprise me at all. I love the way this organization is being built. I think when people look back on the this franchise 10 years from now they are going to marvel at how the Redskins were always in a great position to win championships year after year. And that some players may come and go but the foundation will be in place and just reload.

true but they are just extra help. Its not like we are loosing coaches besides for walker. I mean it is clear that GW will take over someday and if he doesn't for WHAT EVER reason it would be saunders. Saudners may leave after that but i expect this Glen guy would stay to help GW or leave and that wouldn't be that big of a deal. I guess what i am saying is that because they are just adding to our coaching staff and not replacing anyone it isn't really hurting us at all and only helping us.

It's hard to leave $2+ million on the table when a lot of owners aren't offering that much to head coaches.

Didn't we try to bring on Gray when Williams first took over here?

Yes, he was GW's # 1 choice to coordinate on defense, but the Bills refused us permission to interview him. Then we went out and got Chicago's staff..Blache, Lindsey, etc.

Good replacement for Walker, if we need it. Again--a good "fit" sort of move.

Re: Jerry Gray heading to Washington?

it'd be a good move if walker leaves. We'd have two DCs then (gray and blache), one good with DBs, the other DL.
