Sean McVay Named Offensive Coordinator

Posted Jan 15, 2014

The Washington Redskins announced today that they have officially promoted former Tight Ends Coach Sean McVay to Offensive Coordinator.

The Washington Redskins announced today that they have promoted former Tight Ends Coach Sean McVay to Offensive Coordinator.

McVay assumes the role of offensive coordinator entering his sixth NFL season, his fifth in Washington.

After being hired by the Redskins as an offensive assistant in 2010, McVay spent the last three seasons as the team’s tight ends coach, helping the unit account for 222 receptions for 2,704 yards across the 2011-13 seasons.

Last year, McVay was instrumental in the development of rookie tight end Jordan Reed, who compiled 45 receptions for 499 yards – both Redskins’ single-season rookie tight end records – despite Reed playing in only nine games.

Under McVay’s tutelage, Reed joined Chris Cooley (2004) as the only Redskins tight ends named to the PFWA All-Rookie Team.

Reed’s 5.0 receptions per game in 2013 and tight end Fred Davis’ 4.9 receptions per game in 2011 under McVay rank second- and third-most, respectively, in team history for receptions per game by a tight end in a single season.

In those seasons, Davis (66.3) and Reed (55.4) posted the second- and fourth-best receiving yards per game totals by tight ends in Redskins annals.

In addition, McVay helped develop tight end Logan Paulsen from an undrafted free agent into a 30-game starter over the last four seasons, with Paulsen increasing his reception totals each season from 2010-13.

McVay entered the NFL as a coaching assistant with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2008, when he served on the same staff as current Redskins Head Coach Jay Gruden.

In addition, McVay served as tight ends coach for the UFL’s Florida Tuskers in 2009 when Gruden was the team’s offensive coordinator.

McVay, 27, played wide receiver at Miami University from 2004-07, earning Miami’s Scholar-Athlete Award as a senior.
