Which Washington Commanders news stories are hitting the headlines as plans take shape behind the scenes under Dan Quinn and Adam Peters?

The NFL is a fast-moving beast. It's unrelenting. While the Super Bowl may have brought the curtain down on the 2023 season, attention immediately turns to preparations for the new campaign. Something the Washington Commanders have been implementing gradually as part of their ambitious plans under the new regime.

On this topic, the stories causing debate include Josh Harris' reasoning behind hiring Dan Quinn, how Adam Peters' aligned vision approach can help the Commanders, Ryan Kerrigan's importance after being retained on the coaching staff, and more staff alterations coming to light.

Let's delve into each topic in more detail.

Commanders staff taking shape

It's been a busy few weeks for Dan Quinn since becoming Washington Commanders head coach. There was no time to bask in the glory of getting a second chance. Immediate attention turned to molding the best coaching staff possible in the hope they can take the franchise to better fortunes.

Several more moves were reported on Tuesday. The Commanders will retain wide receivers coach Bobby Engram, who spurned advances from elsewhere to remain in Washington. He's an up-and-coming figure with glowing references. This should enable a sense of continuity to remain amid expected changes to the wideout room.

Quinn went back to the Dallas Cowboys to hire Sharrif Floyd as an assistant defensive line coach. The former first-round pick's once-promising playing career was cut extremely short by injury, but he's making a name for himself in the coaching ranks and should bring something a little different.

David Raih is Washington's new tight ends coach. He's got a previous working relationship with offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury and most recently spent time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
