The Redskins started the offseason as an unappealing franchise. Things have only gotten worse over the past few weeks.
Coaches are catching on to the negligence in the nation’s capital.
The disarray surrounding the Washington Redskins 2019 coaching situation has been well-documented. No coaches have been officially fired by the organization, yet interviews have been held with coaching candidates for unopened positions.
Unsurprisingly, coaching candidates, such as Joe Woods, Gregg Williams, and Todd Bowles, have turned down a job in Washington, in favor of teams such as the Buccaneers and the 49ers. Outside coaches have only declined offers from Washington, and now, current Redskins coaches on contract are expressing their desire to leave as well.

Earlier in the offseason, it was reported that Torrian Gray might be out, or might not be out. We still don’t know. Earlier in the offseason, it was reported that Jim Tomsula and Bill Callahan, two of the team’s more respected position coaches, wanted out. Earlier today, Grant Paulsen of NBC Sports Washington made it known that the Redskins had blocked some assistants from seeking new jobs.
In a concurrent report, Paulsen expunged information on Kirk Olivadotti’s request to move on from Washington, and interview with the Green Bay Packers, in what would be a lateral move, and not a promotion. Olivadotti has been with Washington since 2000, save for three seasons with Georgia from 2011 to 2013. He’s been one of their most consistently present position coaches for the better part of two decades. Now, he wants out.
It was known the Redskins would not be desirable to outside coaches, due to their fatal combination of quarterback issues, lack of roster cohesion, and flaring front office dysfunction. But now, they’re not even desirable to their own contracted coaches.
And because the Redskins have kept everything silent for the past two weeks, we have no way to know how large this coaching mutiny could be. Everyone could already be gone, and we wouldn’t know, because of the complete lack of transparency.
This magnitude of malcontent should humble the front office. There are officials inside the organization who don’t want to put up with the endless cycle anymore, and there are many on the outside who can see through the pleasantries, and the interviews, and the promises that things are getting better. This way of operating is not sustainable, and with any luck, the front office will come to that realization, with every part of their staff that crumbles away.
