Redskins Set DC Interview With Jason Tarver

Washington’s brass met with Rob Ryan on Monday for their defensive coordinator opening and will add another name to the list, albeit a lower-profile one. Former Raiders defensive coordinator¬†Jason Tarver will interview for the DC job as well, Master Tefatsion of the Washington Post reports.

Currently the 49ers’ linebackers coach, Tarver hasn’t been connected with any of the DC jobs this offseason. But the 49ers did consider him for their DC position, one that eventually went to Jim O’Neil, last year.

Tarver spent three seasons as the Raiders’ DC from 2012-14, and the 42-year-old assistant served in a lengthy previous 49ers stint in the 2000s. While affiliated with two NFL teams and three colleges in 20 years of coaching, Tarver has never coached outside of northern California. However, he did work with current Redskins GM Scot McCloughan during the initial 49ers stint.

He adds to the list of prospective Redskins DCs, with Ryan and Mike Pettine also residing on that list.¬†Tarver’s Raiders defenses ranked 18th, 22nd and 21st, respectively, from 2012-14 during the Dennis Allen regime.

      Why is it that every hire must be a former Tampa, Seattle, or San Fran player or coach. Bruce Allen, Scott McCLOUGHAN and Jay Gruden must be very insecure if all they want to do is hire their friends. Hasn’t worked so far and they still haven’t learned. Snyder…please…please call me. Let’s talk I can come up there and set those boys straight cause YOU NEVER HIRE YOUR FRIENDS.

      Look at his scholarly credentials. He’s got something close to a 150 IQ. His defense at Stanford was great. He talked the Niners into drafting Bowman. He kept his job through 5 head coaches, unheard of in the NFL.
      That puts you on the bottom looking up, Tadpole.
