The fact that the Redskins met with Todd Bowles earlier this week and seem to have also already let go of DBs coach Torrian Gray would lead you to believe they're leaning toward getting rid of current defensive coordinator Greg Manusky.
However, if they eventually choose to do so, Bowles won't be on the list of candidates to replace him.
The Buccaneers reportedly hired Bruce Arians on Tuesday to be their next coach. Soon after that news broke, it was reported that Arians would be bringing Bowles with him to Tampa to serve as Bucs D-coordinator.
So, count the former Washington player out as a potential replacement should Manusky be removed from his role running the 'Skins defense.
Of course, there are other options. Steve Wilks, who was fired after just one year at the helm of the Cardinals, has had a lot of success in the league as a defensive assistant. Marvin Lewis, who's worked with the Redskins in the past, was also just let go after a long tenure with the Bengals.
Before the team starts looking elsewhere, though, they'll have to make a final call on Manusky. Jay Gruden has mentioned that changes to the staff are coming, and while it appears that Manusky will be one of them, it hasn't happened quite yet.
