Redskins OC Sean McVay says run game will remain similar under Jay Gruden


The Washington Redskins have a new head coach in Jay Gruden. That means their could be some changes for the Redskins offense, but new Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay thinks there won’t be many changes to the running game.

“I don’t think it will change a lot,” McVay said, via ESPN. “The foundation and base principles will remain the same. Jay does a great job of adjusting to his players. He doesn’t make the player adjust to his scheme.”

The Redskins have a solid running back in Alfred Morris who rushed for 2,888 yards in his first two seasons in the league under former head coach Mike Shanahan. Their system involved bootlegs, or keepers, and the outside-zone.

“Everyone knows what ability and talent he has,” McVay said. “He’s already had a bunch of success in this league. Everyone is excited about him and I’m confident he’ll have a great year leading this team.”
