Washington has fired Jay Gruden as head coach.

Washington fell to 0-5 on the season with their 33-7 loss to the New England Patriots.

"Through the first five games of the 2019 season, the team has clearly not performed up to expectations, and we all share in that responsibility," the team said in a statement. "Moving forward we are committed to doing all that we can collectively as an organization to turn things around and give our Redskins fans and alumni a team they can be proud of in 2019 and beyond."

Bill Callahan will become head coach on an interim basis.

According to Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post, Daniel Snyder summoned Gruden to their practice facility for a 5 AM meeting with Bruce Allen and he was fired at that time.
