The Washington Redskins officially fired head coach Jay Gruden on Monday morning. ESPN’s Ed Werder is already listing out some potential names to keep an eye on regarding his replacement.
Werder, Monday morning, noted three names – one of which is very interesting. He has Todd Bowles, Eric Bieniemy and Mike Tomlin on the list.
Bowles coached the New York Jets from 2015-2018 and currently serves as the defensive coordinator for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Bieniemy is the offensive coordinator for the Kansas City Chiefs.
Then there’s Tomlin, who is currently the head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers. He’s been with the franchise since 2007 and he’s never suffered a losing season.
It’s unlikely Tomlin gets fired after this season, but it’s possible he decides to leave. Perhaps Washington could be an option in that case.
Per @WerderEdESPN – Snyder's list of replacements includes Mike Tomlin, Todd Bowles and Eric Bieniemy.
Tomlin and Bowles are defensive coaches. Bowles talked to the Redskins this offseason. Bieniemy considered the best offensive mind on the market.

Earlier in the day, both Ryan Day and Urban Meyer were suggested as potential replacements by a few on-air personalities. They’ve both coached Dwayne Haskins – the quarterback the Redskins drafted this past April.
The Redskins, through five games, have yet to earn a win this season.
