The Washington Redskins' search for a new head coach reportedly will include a name from their NFC East rivals. The Redskin are interviewing Dallas Cowboys special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia on Friday, according to Adam Schefter and John Clayton of ESPN.

The report cites Bisaccia's close relationship to Redskins general manager Bruce Allen.

Bisaccia previously coached in Tampa Bay (2002-10), working as special teams coach, associate head coach and running backs coach.

The Redskins are in the market for a new head coach after Mike Shanahan was fired Tuesday.
