Jim Washburn is a top notch DL coach.
Yup, that would be the one I would like to get. He is also on the radar for the Eagles DC position.
Which may be why we are seeking him for senior defensive assistant..
Grabbed this from phin addicts:
As per Alex Marvez, source tells NFL on FOX that Miami Dolphins are hiring Jim Washburn as senior defensive assistant working with the D-Line. Ties w/Ndamukong Suh. The Dolphins were denied permission by Lions to interview defensive line coach Kris Kocurek for same position.
Heralded as one of the best defensive line coaches in the NFL, Washburn joined the Detroit Lions coaching staff as assistant defensive line/pass rush specialist in 2013 after serving as the Philadelphia Eagles’ defensive line coach from 2011-2012. Washburn’s stout coaching resume features six defensive linemen he has coached to the Pro Bowl, including Jason Babin, Kyle Vanden Bosch, Kevin Carter, Albert Haynesworth, Jevon Kearse and Ndamukong Suh.
I like that Gase is interested in these veteran assistants.
