The Redskins have a new defensive backs coach who has a solid NFL resume, that being former Cleveland Browns, Arizona Cardinals and Tennessee Titans defensive coordinator Ray Horton.
ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim first tweeted the news Thursday afternoon.
The Redskins have hired Ray Horton as their defensive backs coach, per source. Horton last coached in 2016 as the defensive coordinator with the Cleveland Browns. He also served as a defensive coordinator with Tennessee and Arizona.
Horton last coached with the Browns in 2016, but has plenty of experience as just a defensive backs coach, as he started his career with the Redskins 1994 as a defensive assistant.
He was the Skins assistant defensive backs coach from 1995-1996. He moved on to coach defensive backs/secondary for the Cincinnati Bengals(97-01), Detroit Lions(02-03), and Pittsburgh Steelers (04-10).
