Coaching Carousel: Gruden is Snyder’s latest flavor

Cincy OC Jay Gruden has reportedly agreed to succeed Mike Shanahan as the head coach in Washington, making him Dan Snyder's sixth coach in 15 years there.

According to Adam Schefter, the Bengals plan to promote QB coach and former Raiders head man Hue Jackson to replace Gruden as OC.

However, Ian Rapoport says Jackson could join Gruden in Washington to coordinate his offense, with current secondary coach Raheem Morris potentially running the defense.

Meanwhile, Jason La Canfora says Jim Haslett will keep his DC gig, rather than hand the reins over to Morris, with TE coach Sean McVay taking over the offense.

That leaves four vacancies: Detroit, Tennessee, Minnesota, and Cleveland.

Other Gigs

Chargers OC Ken Whisenhunt will interview with Detroit today, Tennessee on Friday, and Cleveland on Saturday.

If Gary Kubiak doesn't get the Lions job, for which he interviewed this week, he may end up competing with Mini Shanny for the OC gig in Miami.

Schefter reports that Josh McDaniels had a great interview with Cleveland, yet has decided he'd rather hang around Bill Belichick and Tom Brady for another year, But according to Mary Kay Cabot, McDaniels pulled his name upon learning he wasn't the top candidate for the job. Strange, to say the least.
