The Washington Redskins have agreed to a contract extension with head coach Jay Gruden through the 2020 season. It’s a two-year extension.

He was entering the fourth-year of his initial five-year deal. Financial terms of his new agreement have not been released.

This provides the team stability moving forward. Yet, there is still uncertainty involving general manager Scot McCloughan.

The Redskins reportedly sent him home in February — and some reports said it was alcohol related. However, there are other reports indicating that he is dealing with a family death.

There’s no timetable on if he’ll return to the team.

Gruden is 21-26-1 in his coaching career with the team. His best record was 9-7 in 2015.

This past season, the Redskins had a chance to make the playoffs. However, they put on a dud against the New York Giants, which cost them their chance.

Also, with Gruden staying, it appears that quarterback Kirk Cousins will be back with the team at least for one more season.
