Haslett: Work Atmosphere Is ‘Awesome’

The buzz began to build at Redskins Park since Jay Gruden’s first day as head coach  back in January.

In a little more than a month, Gruden has finalized his staff and breathed life into a building bogged down by a 3-13 season.

In an appearance with Larry Michael on “Redskins Nation,” Defensive Coordinator Jim Haslett said the last two months of the 2013 season were probably the worst he’s had in three and half decades playing and coaching pro football, but the atmosphere has already shifted under the new regime.

“A couple players came in the other day. They said they could feel it,” Haslett told Michael

“We had a defensive staff meeting the other day. We were talking football for about an hour and a half. We’re talking about one coverage, things we want to do and change, things we want to do and get better. And the defensive line coach, Jacob Burney, said this is the most fun he’s had in two years. And I thought, all we’re doing is sitting around and talking football, you know, trying to get some things right. And it is different from that standpoint.

“It’s awesome. It really is. It’s good to come to work. Guys got their smiles on their faces. They’re happy.”

In an extended interview on “Redskins Nation,” Haslett told Michael what went wrong with the defense in 2013, how he believes Robert Griffin III will rebound in 2014 and how he approaches free agency.
