Jay Gruden says he's still Redskins' coach

Despite a dismal 33-7 loss to the Patriots on Sunday, Redskins coach Jay Gruden said he's still the team's head coach until he is told otherwise.

"Nobody's told me anything," Gruden said during his news conference, per ESPN. "I don't have a concern; I'll just wait and see. If my key works on Monday, keep working, go attack the Miami Dolphins and plan on getting our first win next week."

Washington fell to 0-5 after losing its fourth straight game by double digits. It has lost its games by an average of 15.6 points, seven in a row dating back to last season and 11 of their last 12.

Gruden's offense has been largely inept through five games this season. The Redskins started two quarterbacks, Case Keenum and Colt McCoy, and played three, including first-round pick Dwayne Haskins.

The Redskins last made the playoffs in 2015, Gruden's second season. Since then, they're 22-30-1.

Kickoff between the Redskins and Dolphins is slated for Sunday, Oct. 13 at 1 p.m. ET.
