Seven Redskins assistants remain

ASHBURN, Va. -- The Washington Redskins retained seven assistant coaches, though their status could change in the next few weeks depending on whoever is hired as the new coach. It's common for teams to keep assistants around before a new coach is hired, partly to compile player evaluations.

Those who are still around: defensive coordinator Jim Haslett, secondary coach Raheem Morris, defensive line coach Jacob Burney, offensive line coach Chris Foerster, assistant offensive line coach Chris Morgan, running backs coach Bobby Turner and tight ends coach Sean McVay. It's possible that a couple of these coaches stick around with a new regime.

The assistants who were fired Monday, along with coach Mike Shanahan: offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, special teams coach Keith Burns, advance scout Larry Coyer, quarterbacks coach Matt LaFleur, coaching assistant Richmond Flowers and receivers coach Mike McDaniel, linebackers coach Bob Slowik and defensive assistant Bobby Slowik.
