Washington Redskins have asked permission to speak with Giants DC Perry Fewell
The Washington Redskins have asked the New York Giants for permission to interview defensive coordinator Perry Fewell for their vacant head-coaching position, according to ESPN’s Josina Anderson.
It’s not a surprise, given that Fewell used to be a popular interview candidate prior to the last two offseasons and the Giants’ defense just finished the season ranked No. 8 in the NFL. The Redskins are casting a wide net in the wake of the firing of Mike Shanahan on Monday, but Fewell is an interesting candidate due to his strong reputation and the bit of head-coaching experience he got as an interim head coach with the Buffalo Bills in 2009.
