Former Raiders RB Randy Jordan re-unites with a Gruden as Redskins running backs coach

The Redskins announced Saturday night that they have hired Randy Jordan as the team's running backs coach. He will join Jay Gruden's new staff, coming over from North Carolina where he was held the same position for his alma mater.

Jordan spent nine seasons in the NFL, most of them with the Raiders. He came into the league in 1993 with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent. He spent one season with the Raiders before being signed by the brand new Jacksonville Jaguars franchise. He spent three seasons in Jacksonville before returning the to Raiders in 1998 where he spent the final five seasons of his NFL career.

His return to the Raiders coincided with the hiring of Jon Gruden as head coach. Jordan was with the Raiders during Jon Gruden's entire tenure as Raiders head coach. His final season in the NFL was in 2002 when the Raiders lost to Gruden's Buccaneers team in the Super Bowl. Now he joins Jon's brother Jay in Washington.

Redskins GM Bruce Allen was also Raiders GM during Jordan's time in Oakland.
