Bill Callahan to be Redskins interim head coach

Bill Callahan to be Redskins interim head coach

Snyder and team president Bruce Allen informed Gruden he was sacked a day after a 33-7 loss to the New England Patriots.

That said, here's a look at the biggest takeaways from Callahan's introductory presser and the state of the Redskins moving forward. Callahan coached the Oakland Raiders from 2002 to 2003 in vastly different seasons.

ESPN reported Redskins assistant head coach/offensive line coach Bill Callahan will be the interim head coach.

The Redskins have scheduled a 1 p.m. news conference. He spent five years covering TCU athletics, which included two BCS bowls, two trips to the college World Series and the move to the Big 12.

When asked by reporters about his job status after Sunday's loss, Gruden said: "Nobody's told me anything".

On his way out, he delivered a quote that everyone's citing now that he's out: "If the key works Monday, I'll keep working". The Redskins dropped to 0-5 on the season Sunday afternoon when they suffered an ugly 26-point loss at home to the New England Patriots.

Gruden initially was hired by Washington in the hopes that he could help Robert Griffin III develop into a star quarterback, but that forced partnership quickly soured.

Callahan has head coaching National Football League eperience but it is unclear what his vision for the team will be for the next 11 games but more importantly next Sunday as it relates to the Dolphins. The team went 7-9 in each of the past two seasons, leading to speculation about whether he would be back. Last weekend they started Colt McCoy.

Gruden was 35-49-1 with Washington since taking over in 2014. I've got good players, I've got a good staff.
