Redskins coach Jay Gruden has been told he will return for 2019, a person with knowledge of the situation said Friday. Gruden, who has gone 35-44-1 in five seasons as Washington's coach, has two years remaining on an extension he signed in 2017. He had been operating on the assumption he would be back but said earlier in the week he was still waiting on an official word from team owner Daniel Snyder. While Gruden, 51, will return, there may be other changes. Some assistant coaches are not expected to be back, which could lead to a new look from the team next season. A person familiar with the Redskins plans says the team will spend the next week working on a plan for the coaching staff. Also uncertain is who will be running the front office. Some NFL agents in regular contact with the team have suggested that Bruce Allen, the team president, might move from overseeing football operations to the business side after Snyder recently fired the team's business head, Brian Lafemina. They believe it's possible senior vice president of football operations Eric Schaeffer would take a larger role. Two years ago, Gruden became the first coach under Snyder's ownership to get a contract extension when the team added two years to his original five-year deal. The extension was largely-seen at the time as an attempt at showing franchise stability. Last year, he became the longest tenured coach in Snyder's two decades of ownership.
