Jim Haslett, Washington Agree To Part Ways 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Dec 31, 2014 3:57 pm

Washington and defensive coordinator Jim Haslett have mutually agreed to part ways.

Haslett finished his fifth season with Washington in 2014.

During his time, the Washington defense has finished a collective 29th in total yards and 30th in points per game. This season, the banged-up unit ranked 20th in total yards and 29th in points allowed.

 

Earlier this month, former Redskins linebacker London Fletcher, speaking on CBS' pregame show, called Haslett "clueless."

"[Haslett] would take the '85 Bears defense and turn them into a mediocre defense," Fletcher said. "He has no idea what he's doing. He's proven year in and year out that he's not a good defensive coordinator."

Fletcher also accused Haslett of potentially "backstabbing" Gruden.
