What's the latest on the Redskins coaching search?

In addition to reportedly seeking interviews with Bengals coordinators Jay Gruden and Mike Zimmer as well as Vanderbilt coach James Franklin, the Redskins have also reached out to 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman, according to NFL Network’s Albert Breer.

Roman, 41, has been San Francisco’s offensive coordinator the past three seasons and has been lauded for helping the 49ers transition from Alex Smith to Colin Kaepernick last season.

The 49ers’ offense ranked third in rushing yards per game this season (137.6) and 11th in points (25.4).

Breer reported that Roman is also being sought by the Vikings and that there “could be interviews coming” with both teams.

Roman cannot be hired until the 49ers’ season ends. They beat the Packers 23-20 on Sunday to advance in the playoffs.

Roman becomes the eighth NFL coordinator linked to the Redskins’ head coaching vacancy, joining Gruden, Zimmer, Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, Cowboys special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia, Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott, Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell and Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell.
