Former Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden has another job at the NFL level.

Gruden was hired by the Los Angeles Rams as a consultant, Rams head coach Sean McVay confirmed Thursday afternoon.

The 55-year-old Gruden has been at Rams training camp, but will mostly work remotely. 

A star quarterback and two-time champion head coach in the Arena Football League, Gruden has extensive NFL experience.

He was a member of his brother Jon's staff with the Tampa Buccaneers as an offensive assistant from 2002-08, helping the team win Super Bowl XXXVII.

Gruden would later serve as the offensive coordinator of the Cincinnati Bengals from 2011-13 before being hired to run the show in Washington. 

In five-plus seasons in D.C., Gruden posted a 35-49-1 overall record. He led Washington to the NFC East title in 2015 and an 8-7-1 record the following year, but posted two straight losing campaigns before being fired early in the 2019 season after getting off to an 0-5 start.

After his head coaching tenure ended, Gruden resurfaced as the offensive coordinator of the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2020.
