WASHINGTON — Jay Gruden will interview with the Washington Redskins on Wednesday, said a person familiar with the team’s coaching search, making the Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator the sixth known candidate to meet with general manager Bruce Allen.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on Tuesday on condition of anonymity because the team does not confirm interviews in advance.

Gruden is a popular name among the five NFL teams without a head coach. He interviewed Tuesday with the Tennessee Titans and has drawn interest from at least two other teams.

Allen has already met with Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, Dallas Cowboys special teams coach Rich Bisaccia, Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott, Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell and New York Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell.

The Redskins have reached out to at least 11 candidates in the search to replace Mike Shanahan, who was fired last week after a 3-13 season. They’ve been attempting to set up an interview with Vanderbilt coach James Franklin as well as five other NFL assistants: Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer, San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman and defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, and San Diego Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt.
