The Washington Redskins have fired head coach Jay Gruden after an 0-5 start, according to multiple reports.
ESPN’s Dan Graziano first posted the news via a source on Twitter at 4:43 a.m. Monday.
The Redskins are one of two 0-5 teams in the NFL. The other is the AFC’s Cincinnati Bengals.
The Redskins were blown out by the New England Patriots 33-7 Sunday at FedEx Field on Sunday.
Gruden was 35-49-1 with Washington since taking over in 2014. He had two winning seasons — 9-7 in 2015 and 8-7-1 in 2016. He was 12-21 in the NFC East, including 0-3 in 2019.
The Redskins made the playoffs once under Gruden, but lost at home in the NFC wild card to the Packers in January 2016.
