The Washington Redskins announced Feb. 22 that the team has added Matthew Shea as defensive quality control coach and Bill Khayat as offensive quality control coach.
Shea moved from the Redskins video department for his first coaching job and Khayat spent the last three seasons (2004-06) with the Arizona Cardinals.
Shea began his NFL career as assistant video director with the Redskins in 2004. He was responsible for the taping and editing of all games and practices. In addition, he compiled video for the Redskins coaching staff and personal department prior to free agency.
During the 2006 season to go along with his video responsibilities, Shea worked closely with the defensive coaching staff in preparation during the week and on game day.
Shea joined the Redskins after working for Pinnacle Systems where he implemented video network solutions for many NFL teams.
He received his bachelor degree in history from the University of Minnesota-Morris, where he was a three-year letter winner in football and team captain during his senior season.
Khayat will enter his fourth season in the NFL after spending the previous three with the Arizona Cardinals as offensive quality control coach.
He spent four seasons at Tennessee State as running backs coach/recruiting coordinator (2003) and tight ends coach and video coordinator (2000-02).
Khayat was a standout tight end at Duke University. He was twice named to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference second team and was an honorable mention All-American pick in 1994.
He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in biological anthropology and anatomy.
Bill's father Eddie played defensive tackle for the Redskins during the 1957, 1962-63 seasons and his uncle Robert played kicker for Washington in 1960, 1962-63.
