The Redskins interviewed Tim Rattay for their quarterbacks coach position today, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (Twitter link), who adds Rattay has a “good chance” to land the job.
Washington is seeking to find a replacement for former quarterbacks coach Kevin O’Connell, who earlier this month was promoted to offensive coordinator. Rattay, 41, has never coached at the NFL level, but he did play in the league (primarily as a backup) from 2000-07. After retiring, Rattay worked as the wide receivers coach for the Las Vegas Locomotives of the United Football League before joining Louisiana Tech in 2013. He coached the Bulldogs’ pass-catchers for two years before taking over as quarterbacks coach in 2015.
While Rattay hasn’t held an NFL coaching job, he did interview for the Raiders’ QBs coach position last offseason. As such, it’s possible Oakland head coach Jon Gruden put in a good word for Rattay with his brother — and Redskins head coach — Jay Gruden.
