"This could possibly open the door for Haskins to start", Mike Tannenbaum, former general manager of the New York Jets, told FOX Business.
The Redskins have gone 35-49-1 overall under Gruden, whose brother, Jon, coaches the Oakland Raiders.
The NFL is similar to a grade school class when a team fires their head coach and makes one of the assistants an interim.
According to the statement by the Redskins, there will be a press conference at 1 p.m. from Redskins Park, the team's headquarters outside of D.C.in Ashburn, Virginia. He lasted longer than any of Snyder's six previous head coaches, with none staying longer than four years. Despite being at home, the Redskins opened as three point favorites. "Whatever gives coach Callahan the formula for success, I'm sure he's going to do", Allen said. I don't have a concern.

A short time later, police arrested a 24-year-old man who was wielding a metal object in the vicinity of the last three murders. Baldassano said the attacks appeared to be random. "No one was targeted by race, age, anything of that nature", he said.
On his way out, he delivered a quote that everyone's citing now that he's out: "If the key works Monday, I'll keep working". The only club that ranks worse than Washington in both categories are the Miami Dolphins, who are 0-4 and had a bye this week will host Washington next Sunday. The duties of playcalling for the rest of the season will act as a nice test for his potential tenure with the Redskins.
Gruden initially was hired by Washington in the hopes that he could help Robert Griffin III develop into a star quarterback, but that forced partnership quickly soured.
Callahan has more than two decades of National Football League coaching experience. Early on, his offenses did well, especially late in the 2015 season when quarterback Kirk Cousins led a late-season run to the division title and in 2016 when Washington had the third-most yards in the NFL.
