Jay Gruden has finalized his coaching staff. 

On Tuesday morning, the Redskins announced the addition of three assistant coaches: Bradford Banta (assistant special teams), Shane Day (assistant offensive line/offensive quality control) and Jake Peetz (offensive quality control).

The team also confirmed it will retain Aubrey Pleasant, who will serve as the defensive quality control coach.

Banta, 43, spent the last six seasons in the Lions’ organization, assisting with the linebackers and special teams. He’ll work under new special teams coordinator Ben Kotwica.

Day, meantime, spent the last two seasons as the quarterbacks coach at UConn. He held the same title with the Bears from 2010-11 and was the offensive quality control coach with the 49ers the three seasons before that.

Peetz, 30, was an analyst at Alabama last season. He held various titles with the Jaguars from 2008-12, including scout and offensive assistant.

Pleasant, 27, spent last season as an offensive assistant with the Redskins. Prior to that, he was a defensive assistant at Michigan from 2011-12.
