Jay Gruden’s tenure leading the Washington Redskins came to its conclusion on Monday.
Following a 33-7 loss to the Patriots, Gruden was fired early Monday.
The dismissal comes five weeks into Gruden’s sixth season helming the Redskins, having tallied an underwhelming 35-49-1 record with just one playoff appearance.
The #Redskins move on from coach Jay Gruden, who by the end was likely waiting for this to happen and is obviously not surprised. A lost season in Washington, but the early move gives them a chance to start their search in earnest
