Joe Reedy on Redskins hire Jay Gruden

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- The Washington Redskins have hired Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden as their next head coach. 

Cincinnati Enquirer's Joe Reedy, who has been covering the Bengals for five seasons, says Jay is a little more laid back then his brother Jon Gruden but still intense.

Reedy calls Gruden a great offensive mind, and says he was unofficially the offensive coordinator when Tampa Bay won the Super Bowl in 2002, calling the plays alongside his brother Jon.

Gruden knows how to deal with and acquire personnel, according to Reedy, who cited his experiencing in the UFL and the Arena League.
