Fans React to New Redskins Head Coach

Posted:

DOVER, Del.- It was news Washington Redskins fans did not expect. Jay Gruden has been introduced as the new head coach, the seventh hired by owner Danny Snyder since he bought the franchise 15 years ago.

Redskins fan Anthony Zarrello of Laurel says he never leaves home without his Redskins gear. He's excited about the change coming to Washington.

"Jay Gruden has a good background. He's a good offensive coach." said Zarrello. "He's got the west coast style so I'm hoping he can orient that into the Washington's program."

Zarrello believes Gruden will be a good change for the Redskins team.

"We need somebody to come in and give us a new aspect, a new playbook," said Zarrello. "Hopefully, it'll all turn out to be for the good."

Zarrello is among fan hoping for the best. Steve Kramer of Dover is another Redskins fan excited about Gruden coming to Washington.

"I like the hire. He has a lot of familiarity with a lot of the coaches on staff and I think continuity is always pretty good."

The Redskins interviewed five other candidates before hiring Gruden. Gruden comes as the former offensive coordinator for the Cincinnati Bengals. The Redskins finished their 2013 season 3-13.
