WASHINGTON (AP) — Jay Gruden has been fired as head coach of the Washington Redskins after an 0-5 start to his sixth season.

The team announced the move Monday and said offensive line coach Bill Callahan would replace Gruden on an interim basis.

Owner Daniel Snyder and team president Bruce Allen informed Gruden he was out early Monday morning, a day after a 33-7 loss to the New England Patriots.
