Jay Gruden isn’t blaming anyone else.
The now-former coach of the Washington Redskins told the Washington Post he’s “not bitter” after being fired at 5 a.m. on Monday, thanks to an 0-5 start this season.
“This is a production-based business, and I didn’t get it done,” he said.
Gruden’s tenure ended with a 39-45-1 record over five-plus seasons with the Redskins, only twice finishing a season above the .500 mark.
The 52-year-old’s 2019 squad was beset by injuries that left the Redskins as the league’s third-lowest scoring team in the NFL. That left the coach wistful for what could have been in this pivotal year.
“I just wish I could have had all of our offensive players,” he said. “We never got to flex our offensive muscle.”
