The Washington Redskins announced Tuesday that they have hired former safety Kyshoen Jarrett as a Defensive Quality Control Coach.
Prior to the promotion, Jarrett acted as a defensive coaching intern for the Redskins last season.
Jarrett, who was selected as a sixth-round pick out of Virginia Tech by the Redskins during the 2015 NFL Draft, suffered a career-ending shoulder injury during the final game of his rookie season against the Dallas Cowboys Jan. 3, 2016.
According to the Washington Post, Mayo Clinic doctors diagnosed Jarrett with "serious injury to the brachial plexus," a nerve network that runs from the spinal cord to the armpit through the neck. That summer, the Redskins waived Jarrett with a failed physical designation.
