Redskins hire Jack Del Rio as defensive coordinator

WASHINGTON (AP) – The Washington Redskins have hired Jack Del Rio as defensive coordinator.

The Redskins added the former head coach and defensive coordinator of the Oakland Raiders one day after hiring Ron Rivera as head coach.

In 2016, Del Rio guided the Raiders to a 12-4 record, marking the franchise’s first 12-win season since 2000.

After a 25-23 record in three seasons, he was replaced by Jon Gruden. The 56-year-old Del Rio was an ESPN analyst this season.
