Source: Redskins hire Jay Gruden as coach Published: January 9, 2014

The Washington Redskins search for a new head coach, which once looked like it could take several weeks, ended Thursday when they agreed to hire Jay Gruden, a league source told ESPN.

Gruden will replace Mike Shanahan, who was fired as Redskins head coach a day after their season ended. Gruden, the younger brother of ESPN "Monday Night Football" broadcaster Jon Gruden, is the sixth head coach of the Skins in owner Dan Snyder's 15-year tenure.
