Redskins extend contract for head coach Jay Gruden

Redskins

Going into the fourth year of a five year contract, questions would soon start for Redskins head coach Jay Gruden about his contract situation. Rarely does a coach work in the last year of a deal, though it seems the Redskins have avoided all of that.

CSN confirmed that Washington agreed to a two-year extension for Jay Gruden, marking the first coach in owner Dan Snyder's tenure to reach a contract extension with the club. Redskins officials were not immediately available for comment. 

The report was origanlly reported by John Keim of ESPN.

Since a season ending loss to the New York Giants on January 1, the 'Skins have been thrust into turmoil. General manager Scot McCloughan is not with the team at the NFL Scouting Combine, and the future of quarterback Kirk Cousins and the team remains up in the air. 

In three seasons as head coach, Gruden has a record 21-26-1. In the last two seasons, Gruden has guided the Redskins to a 17-14-1 record with one NFC East title.
