The Washington Redskins lost out on their top choice for a defensive coordinator when Gus Bradley agreed to terms with the Los Angeles Chargers on Friday night. Bradley, fired as the coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars late in the 2016 regular season, interviewed with Washington on Jan. 11. He was regarded both by the Redskins and others around the league as the top defensive coordinator candidate available. Bradley had strong ties to members of the Redskins' organization, having coached the Seattle defense while Scot McCloughan worked in the Seahawks front office. Before that, Bradley coached with current Washington caoch Jay Gruden as an assistant in Tampa Bay; Redskins team president Bruce Allen was the Buccaneers' general manager at the time.
