NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports the Redskins plan to interview Vanderbilt coach James Franklin, according to a source informed of the team's plans. The interview likely will happen this week. The former Maryland offensive coordinator has ties to the area.
The Redskins also plan to meet with both Cincinnati Bengals coordinators. Cincinnati's crushing loss Sunday apparently hasn't scared teams away from offensive coordinator Jay Gruden, who was contacted by four teams including Washington, NFL Media's Albert Breer reports, via Bengals sources. Rapoport adds that Cincinnati defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer also will interview with the Redskins.
Washington also requested to interview 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, Rapoport reported, per a source who has seen the request.
