One of the several American football teams headquartered in the DC metro region is known as the Washington Football Team (WFT). The franchise, formerly known as the Washington Redskins, is a member of the National Football Conference East division of the National Football League.



The Redskins were created in 1932 as the Boston Braves; they changed their name in 1934. In 1937, the franchise was relocated to Washington, D.C.

Listed here is the entire coaching staff for the Washington Redskins of the NFL. To date, the team has had 30 head coaches, including those who led the team when they were called the Boston Braves in 1932, the Boston Redskins  from 1933 through 1936, and the Washington Redskins from 1937 to 2019.



Only Joe Gibbs has been a head coach for more than one period of time. Both Ray Flaherty and Joe Gibbs, who coached the club from 1982 through 1991, have won NFL titles with the squad.

Among active coaches, Gibbs holds the record for the most games and victories coached, while Dudley DeGroot has the all-time record for the highest win percentage (.737). Seven coaches have been honored with induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, including   Ray Flaherty, Curly Lambeau, Otto Graham, Vince Lombardi, George Allen, and Gibbs.
