Was Jay Gruden a good hire for the Redskins? Fans react on Twitter

Cred: Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

On Thursday morning, the Washington Redskins closed the book on their coaching search. The franchise announced that it had hired Jay Gruden to be the next head coach.

Gruden, who is better-known as the younger brother of Super Bowl winning coach Jon, spent the last three seasons as the Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator. Between 2004-10, he had stints in the Arena Football League and United Football League, and was an offensive assistant on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2002-08 under Jon. He received his coaching head start in 1997 with the AFL’s Nashville Kats, and coached the Orlando Predators from 1998-2001.

But does Gruden’s coaching background foreshadow success for the Redskins? The announcement of his hiring fired up Twitter early, as the majority of people laughed at team owner Daniel Snyder’s hire. After all, this is the seventh head coach since Snyder took over the team in 1999; what’s to say it will be any different this time around?

There was some hope for Gruden, though.
