The Redskins continue to round out their staff, hiring Jacob Burney to be their new defensive line coach, according to league sources.
Burney began contacting players this afternoon to let them know he was now coaching that position. Burney’s hiring was expected.
The Redskins also are retaining safeties coach Steve Jackson and special teams coach Danny Smith. Secondary coach Jerry Gray has left to take a similar role with the Seahawks, and Bob Slowik, who has a long history with new coach Mike Shanahan, likely will take over as secondary coach.
The Redskins have yet to fill their offensive line and tight end coaching positions.
