Redskins interviewing Cowboys assistant Wes Phillips


The Redskins are looking within their own division for some help, as new coach Jay Gruden builds his staff.

According to Todd Archer of, Cowboys tight ends coach Wes Phillips is interviewing with the Redskins.

Phillips’ contract with the Cowboys has expired, so he’s free to take a lateral move.

He’s been with the Cowboys since 2007, when his father Wade Phillips was the head coach. He has bounced all over the staff, working with wide receivers, offensive linemen and special teams before being named tight ends coach in 2013 during the offensive shakeup there last offseason.

The Redskins promoted tight ends coach Sean McVay to offensive coordinator, creating the position vacancy.
