The Washington Redskins announced today that they have named Chad Grimm as Defensive Quality Control Coach.
Grimm is entering his seventh NFL season after spending the last two years in the same capacity with the San Diego Chargers. Grimm spent his first four NFL seasons with the Arizona Cardinals after entering the league in 2009 as an offensive quality control coach.
Grimm played collegiately as a linebacker and special teamer at Virginia Tech from 2003-06. The Fairfax, Va., native played both football and lacrosse at Oakton H.S. in Vienna, Va., helping the school reach the state finals in both sports for the first time in school history.
Grimm is the son of Russ Grimm, a Pro Football Hall of Famer and three-time Super Bowl champion who stands as one of the most decorated players in Redskins history. Russ – a founding member of the franchise's famed "Hogs" – played 11 seasons in Washington from 1981-91 and served in various assistant roles for the team from 1992-2000.
