The Washington Redskins have determined what they imagine to be a diamond in the tough.
Right after just two seasons with the franchise as the quarterbacks mentor and passing video game coordinator, the staff has promoted Kevin O’Connell to offensive coordinator.
If that name seems familiar, it’s due to the fact O’Connell expended time with the Jets. The New England Patriots selected O’Connell out of San Diego State in the third round of the 2008 NFL draft, and he played briefly in two video games that yr.
New England introduced him the following preseason, and he was claimed by the Detroit Lions. Days afterwards, the Jets traded a seventh-round decide for him to lock up their backup position.
O’Connell never ever really played in a regular-time video game for the Jets. He was introduced in 2010, only to be re-signed by New York on a two-yr offer. A torn labrum in his throwing arm retained O’Connell on injured reserve, and he was once more introduced by the franchise in 2011.
Right after his actively playing job finished, he took a career with the Cleveland Browns in 2015 as the quarterbacks mentor. Right after investing 2016 as an offensive assistant with the 49ers, he joined the Redskins.
