ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - The Washington Redskins have hired Randy Jordan as running backs coach.
The 43-year-old Jordan spent the last two years as running backs coach at North Carolina. He also has coached running backs at Texas A&M and Nebraska. His only NFL coaching experience came as a special teams assistant with the Oakland Raiders in 2003.
Jordan played nine seasons in the NFL, rushing for 574 yards in 122 games with the Raiders and Jacksonville Jaguars.
Jordan replaces Bobby Turner, one of several assistants not retained after coach Mike Shanahan was fired this month and replaced by Jay Gruden.
