Redskins announce Sean McVay as offensive coordinator

The Washington Redskins hired Jay Gruden to be their head coach.  Now, they have announced his offensive coordinator is a promotion from within the organization, opting to promote Sean McVay to the job.  McVay was previously the tight ends coach.  Both are tabbed with getting Robert Griffin III healthy first and then getting him back to being the superstar quarterback he appeared to be as a rookie.

Gruden has used West Coast principles in his offense with the Cincinnati Bengals while McVay can possibly bring over some of what worked from last year that Griffin wants to run.  Recently, Griffin came out and said he wanted to run a pro style offense, which is a smart for his long term health.  His legs are still a huge weapon, but they need to be the changeup as opposed to the fastball in that offense.

Gruden and McVay are replacing Mike and Kyle Shanahan at each of those respective posts from last year.  It will be interesting to see where these two meet both in terms of their philosophies but also in terms of what Griffin wants to and where he is at his best.
