Randy Jordan, who spent nine years in the NFL, has been hired as the Washington Redskins’ new running backs coach, the team announced late Saturday.
Jordan, 43, spent the last two years as the running backs coach at North Carolina after four seasons at Texas A&M and four seasons at Nebraska. He was a special teams assistant for the Oakland Raiders in 2003 after retiring following five seasons playing for the team, which had current Redskins general manager Bruce Allen in that role.
By hiring Jordan, the Redskins have filled the final position coach vacancy on new coach Jay Gruden’s staff. He replaces Bobby Turner, who was originally retained after coach Mike Shanahan and several other assistants were fired on Dec. 30 but was not kept by Gruden.
