Former Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden sensed trouble for a couple of weeks. When he received a text late Sunday night asking him to come in early the next morning, he knew his job was in jeopardy.
The Redskins fired Gruden around 5:30 a.m. Monday and named Bill Callahan the interim coach.

Gruden lasted five-plus seasons, longer than any of the Redskins’ other five full-time coaches has during Dan Snyder’s two decades as owner.
Over the past year, there were reports of Gruden’s frustration with some personnel moves, whether in the draft or free agency.
