Redskins hire Joe Barry as defensive coordinator
The Washington Redskins hired former San Diego Chargers linebackers coach Joe Barry as their defensive coordinator.
Barry, 44, has been a part of five top 10 defenses.
"I like what he's done in his career, how he's progressed as a football coach," Redskins coach Jay Gruden told the Washington Times. "I know what kind of guy he is and what kind of energy he’s going to bring to the team."
The Redskins plan to run a 3-4 defensive scheme.
