After a one-year respite in the UFL, former Saints coach (and Rams interim coach) Jim Haslett is back in the NFL.
A league source tells us that Haslett has been hired by the Redskins to serve as defensive coordinator under Mike Shanahan.
The news was first reported by Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
It’s unclear whether Haslett will use a 3-4 or a 4-3 defense in Washington. He once ran the 3-4 while serving as the Steelers’ defensive coordinator. With the Saints and Rams (as well as the UFL’s Florida Tuskers), Haslett used a base 4-3.
