Randy Jordan - Commanders RBs coach

Randy Jordan is the Washington Commanders' longest-tenured coach, having been with the franchise for a decade. He is one of just two coaches who predates Ron Rivera.

He is also the only offensive coach who has an assistant working under him, even though he typically has only four players active for a game. Two general offensive assistants on the staff work with other position groups.

Jordan also carries the title of senior offensive assistant and the title is deserved. The respected figure is the team’s most experienced and most successful offensive position coach. His is the one unit where young players have come in and exceeded expectations.

Simply getting Brian Robinson Jr. prepared to play after his gunshot wound last year was an achievement. This year, the former third-round pick out of Alabama has improved as a pass catcher.

Antonio Gibson has been a work-in-progress but progressed as a runner. Rookie sixth-rounder Chris Rodriguez Jr. has shown a lot in limited action. Blitz pickup remains an issue, but on the whole, this unit has run behind a below-average offensive line and managed moderate success.
