Many of the former Washington Redskins coaches have been forced to look for work in the past few months, as a new coaching staff followed Ron Rivera to the nation’s capital.

We’ve seen people like Jay Gruden, Kevin O’Connell, and Bill Callahan land safely with other NFL teams, but not everyone was able to find such a nice position after being fired by the Redskins. Former defensive coordinator Greg Manusky has finally found work, but it’s no longer in the NFL, and no longer as a DC.

According to NBC Sports Washington, Manusky has agreed to become the next defensive quality control assistant at the University of Kentucky. This is a head-scratcher, as that position is usually held by a young coaching prospect who is looking to make his way up the coaching ladder, not a former NFL player and coordinator who has spent years in the big leagues.

There were certainly strong arguments to be made against Manusky finding another NFL job, as his defense ranked in the bottom five of the league when it came to points and yards allowed in 2019. The Redskins since overhauled their defensive staff and are looking for a better outcome in 2020.

As for Manusky, it looks like he will have to prove himself at the college level once again before he gets any serious looks from an NFL team.
