Meet The Coaches – Jim Haslett, Defensive Coordinator

Posted by Matt Terl on February 19, 2010 – 10:36 am

The Redskins defense for the last couple years has been — to overgeneralize wildly — technically sound, highly-ranked, and prone to giving up (or not making) the big play. New defensive coordinator Jim Haslett doesn’t fully confirm that the team is switching to a 3-4 alignment, but he does allude to switching some of those trends in this interview with Larry Michael for Inside The Redskins.

“We’re aggressive,” Haslett says, when asked to characterize his defensive scheme. “We’re gonna try to have fun. I think guys are gonna enjoy what they do; we’re gonna do a lot, a lot more than what they’ve done in the past. I think we’re gonna be sound in what we’re doing, but more than anything I think we’re gonna try to be a defense that gets some turnovers. We just haven’t had a lot of turnovers here the last two years, and I think that’s what wins games. You get the ball back to the offense, and the more turnovers the better. We just haven’t done a lot of it these last two years on this team.”

Sounds good to me. Here’s the full interview:
