Watch Redskins Head Coach Jay Gruden Introduce Himself to Washington

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 9, 2014 – 6:17 pm


Bruce Allen didn’t mind answering the phone in the middle of the night.

The Redskins Executive Vice President/General Manager said he received calls at “all hours of the evening” from coaches looking to praise the man sitting to his right inside the auditorium at Redskins Park.

Jay Gruden’s references were impeccable.

Allen introduced Gruden as the 29th head coach of the Washington Redskins in a Thursday night press conference. The executive detailed the franchise’s exhaustive search for it’s new leader and the qualities required of the man who would direct the football team.

Gruden had the fire in his belly Allen described 11 days earlier.

The team’s new teacher accepted a round of applause before thanking his family. Gruden thanked Marvin Lewis, Mike Brown and all the Cincinnati Bengals, then showed his appreciation for Redskins owner Daniel Snyder and Allen.

For about 45 minutes, he fielded questions about reviewing the assets he has in Washington, his impressions of quarterback Robert Griffin III and if he favors a 3-4 or a 4-3 defense. Gruden talked about his history with Allen, picking a coaching staff and much more.

Watch the full press conference below and follow the Redskins on Twitter and Instagram for breaking news as Gruden hires his staff.
