Redskins Interview Jay Gruden

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Jay Gruden has completed his interview for the Washington Redskins' coaching job.

The team confirmed Wednesday that Gruden met with general manager Bruce Allen at Redskins Park, making the Cincinnati Bengals' offensive coordinator the sixth known candidate to interview as a possible replacement for Mike Shanahan.

Gruden has ties with several people within the Redskins' organization. He worked under Allen as an assistant coach with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and with defensive coordinator Jim Haslett in the UFL.

Gruden has drawn interest from at least three other teams seeking to fill a head coaching vacancy. He interviewed with the Tennessee Titans on Tuesday.

Up next on Allen's list could be Vanderbilt coach James Franklin, although Franklin has also been courted by Penn State and other NFL teams.
