Coaches

Sean McVay
Offensive Coordinator
College:
Miami University (Ohio)
Experience:
5

  Sean McVay was named the Redskins’ offensive coordinator on January 15, 2014. McVay enters the 2014 season in his new role after three seasons as the team’s tight ends coach (2011-13) and one as an offensive assistant (2010).

 In 2013, 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. In addition, McVay helped tight end Logan Paulsen from an undrafted free agent into a 30-game starter from 2010-13, with Paulsen increasing his reception totals each season.

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

 During Washington’s NFC East championship season in 2012, McVay’s unit produced despite losing starting tight end Fred Davis to a torn Achilles tendon in Week 7. Davis had led the team in both receptions (24) and receiving yards (325) through seven games before being placed on the Reserve/Injured list. McVay guided a unit that provided reliable receiving options on top of contributing significantly as blockers to the Redskins’ league-leading 2,709 rushing yards.

 In 2011, McVay played an integral role in Davis’ emergence, as the then-fourth-year tight end surpassed his previous career highs despite playing in only 12 games. Davis caught 59 passes for 796 yards, the second-highest total on the team in both categories. Before missing the final four games of the season, Davis was on pace to set a franchise record in receiving yards by a tight end and was on pace to post the first 1,000-yard receiving season by a tight end in Redskins history.

 McVay served as an offensive assistant to the Redskins in 2010, in addition to working with the tight ends during the final four weeks of the season following coach Jon Embree’s departure. The Redskins offense ranked eighth in the NFL in passing yards per game (244.6) and tight end Chris Cooley ranked second among NFL tight ends in receptions (77) and third in receiving yards (849). The offensive unit also set a franchise record for completions in a season (349), and registered a touchdown pass in 15 consecutive games for the first time in team history. The Redskins’ offense led the NFL with nine completions of at least 50 yards, including one in four consecutive games for the first time since 1987.

 McVay joined the Redskins prior to the 2010 season after an undefeated regular season with the Florida Tuskers of the United Football League (UFL), where current Redskins Defensive Coordinator Jim Haslett served as the head coach. The Tuskers finished a perfect 6-0 before losing in the UFL’s inaugural championship game. McVay served as the Tuskers tight ends coach in addition to working closely the team’s running backs. McVay originally entered the National Football League as an offensive assistant with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2008.

 During his time in Tampa Bay, McVay worked closely with wide receiver Antonio Bryant, who recorded career highs in receptions (83), receiving yards (1,248), and touchdowns (seven), en route to winning The Sporting News Comeback Player of the Year Award.

 McVay graduated from Miami University (Ohio) where he played wide receiver from 2004-07, earning Miami’s Scholar-Athlete Award in 2007. His grandfather, John, served in various roles – including vice president/director of football operations from 1983-94 – for the San Francisco 49ers from 1979-95, overseeing five Super Bowl championship squads and earning induction into the 49ers Hall of Fame in 2013.
