Haslett Named Redskins New Defensive Coordinator

The Redskins have hired Jim Haslett as defensive coordinator, replacing the retired Greg Blache. Haslett is a former NFL head coach who most recently coached in the United Football League. The Redskins announced his hiring Friday.

Blache was an NFL assistant for 22 seasons, the last six with the Redskins. Haslett was the head coach of the Saints from 2000-05 and interim coach for the Rams in 2008 after Scott Linehan was fired. He has also been a defensive coordinator for those two teams and the Steelers.

New Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan now has now both coordinators in place. His son, Kyle, will be the offensive coordinator.
