The Washington Redskins are interested in Dallas Cowboys tight ends coach Wes Phillips as a possible replacement for their tight ends coach, Sean McVay, who was elevated to offensive coordinator.
A person familiar with the situation confirmed an ESPN report that Phillips is expected to interview with the Redskins. According to that report, Phillips’s contract with the Cowboys is expiring.
He is the son of longtime NFL coach Wade Phillips and joined the Cowboys’ staff in 2007 when his father was the team’s head coach.
The Redskins completed a deal with McVay this week to become offensive coordinator under the team’s newly hired head coach, Jay Gruden.
