When told last Thursday of reports that tight ends coach Sean McVay will become offensive coordinator in Washington, new head coach Jay Gruden quipped, “Nice, good for Sean.”

Indeed it is.

Via multiple reports, McVay has received the promotion from position coach. It’s an unusual development given the team’s record last season; often, 3-13 gets the head coach fired along with most of the staff. Those who stay rarely are rewarded.
