It appears that the Redskins are ready to fill one of their vacant coordinator jobs.
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports is reporting that the team is "very likely" to move quarterbacks coach Matt Cavanaugh up to offensive coordinator.
Cavanaugh has been the team’s quarterbacks coach since 2015. He was a backup quarterback in the NFL for 13 seasons before he went into coaching. His resume includes 23 years as a coach including eight as an offensive coordinator with the Bears and Ravens.

Jay Gruden would take back the play calling duties. Those have belonged to Sean McVay the last two seasons. McVay departed to take the head coaching job with the Rams earlier this week.
La Canfora also is reporting that tight ends coach Wes Phillips will join McVay in Los Angeles. The two were close on the Redskins staff and Wade Phillips, Wes’ father, is going to be the defensive coordinator with the Rams.
The Redskins remain in search of a defensive coordinator and, if these moves do transpire as reported, a quarterbacks coach and a tight ends coach.
