The Washington Redskins will interview former San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio for the same position to fill the void left by Jim Haslett.
Bill Callahan Redskins – Washington Redskins hire Bill Callahan as their offensive line coach
Jim Haslett fired – Redskins part ways with defensive coordinator
Kirk Cousins trade – Redskins backup quarterback to request trade if Robert Griffin III is named starter
San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio was released from his job shortly after Jim Harbaugh and the 49ers mutually parted ways.
Defensive line coach Jim Tomsula was hired as the head coach, and Fangio is still looking for work. He had served as the 49ers defensive coordinator in each of Harbaugh’s four seasons with the team.
The 49ers ranked in the top five defensively every year Fangio and Harbaugh were there, and he will interview with the Washington Redskins since they fired Jim Haslett.
The Redskins have talent with players such as outside linebackers Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan, so Fangio may be just what the Redskins need to put it all together on defense.
The team already made a splash by hiring Bill Callahan as their offensive line coach after he worked wonders with the Dallas Cowboys.
Around the NFL reported on the Redskins’ newest defensive coordinator candidate on Twitter.
