ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - Kirk Olivadotti is returning to the Washington Redskins as inside linebackers coach, and new coach Jay Gruden is retaining Raheem Morris as defensive backs coach and Jacob Burney as defensive line coach.
The Redskins announced the moves Thursday.
Olivadotti spent 11 seasons with the Redskins from 2000-10 and worked the last three years as inside linebacker coach at the University of Georgia.
Morris and Burney are holdovers from the staff of coach Mike Shanahan, who was fired earlier this month.
Morris returns for his third Redskins season. He and Gruden previously worked together on the staff of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Burney is back for his fifth season with the Redskins.
