​The search is over. 

After numerous interviews and potential candidates, it looks like the Washington Redskins have finally decided on who will be taking over their defense for the foreseeable future. 

According to reports, the Redskins are promoting Greg Manusky to their defensive coordinator position. He spent the past season as the team's outside linebackers coach. 

Not only has Manusky ​​coached the Redskins for the past year, he also played for the team back when he first started his NFL career. 

Manusky was signed by the team back in 1988 as an undrafted free agent, and he spent the first season of his NFL career as a Redskin, before stints with both the Minnesota Vikings and Kansas City Chiefs. 

In his coaching career, he has served as defensive coordinator a whopping four times now with the 49ers, Chargers, Colts, and now Redskins. Congrats Greg!
