Jaguars hiring ex-Redskins coach Jay Gruden as offensive coordinator

Jay Gruden is heading from D.C. to Duval, Jeremy Bergman of reports.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are hiring the former Washington Redskins head coach as their next offensive coordinator, sources told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero on Tuesday night. The deal is still being finalized.

Gruden interviewed with Jacksonville this week. Former New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo also interviewed for the vacancy. 

Fired by the Redskins in October after five-plus years as their head coach, Gruden told Rapoport a few weeks back he wanted to get back in the NFL, ideally as a head coach. But with those jobs off the board -- the four non-Redskins vacancies were filled in the past two weeks, three by first-time NFL head coaches -- Gruden is returning to his previous role.

Before he was hired in Washington, Gruden was the Cincinnati Bengals' offensive coordinator from 2011-13, during which Cincinnati made three straight playoff appearances and quarterback Andy Dalton blossomed from a rookie into a surefire starter.
