Jay Gruden, the younger brother of Jon Gruden, will be named the new coach of the Washington Snyders (Redskins) today, as reported by ESPN and many sources.
Gruden the younger did not do well on Sunday, as he was badly outcoached by San Diego Chargers defensive coordinator John Pagano and struggled to get A.J. Green touches on Sunday. He didn't place Andy Dalton in good spots and contributed to the young quarterback having a forgettable afternoon.
Still, Gruden is a decent enough coordinator who can be inventive. But I question if he is the right guy for the job.
