News Now: Washington Commanders Newly Signed QB Marcus Mariota Threatens To leave The Club If QB Coach Tavita Pritchard Continues As…

Tavita Pritchard, the quarterbacks coach, will stay with the Commanders through 2024.

Over all, the Washington Commanders had a busy day. Jeremy Fowler of ESPN first reported that Brian Johnson, a former offensive coordinator with the Eagles, was set to join Washington’s offensive coaching staff in a “prominent role.”

Later, Fowler reported that Johnson’s position under incoming head coach Dan Quinn would probably be pass-game coordinator.

Shortly afterward, Fowler revealed a key hire for the defense, tabbing Jason Simmons as defensive pass-game coordinator. Simmons spent last season with the Raiders, but spent several years in Green Bay, working with new Washington defensive coordinator Joe Whitt Jr.

Later Thursday, more coaching news, as Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reported that quarterbacks coach Tavita Pritchard will return in the same position in 2024.

Quinn and offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury were impressed by Pritchard, who signed with Washington in 2023 and attracted interest from other NFL teams. Prior to joining the NFL last season, Pritchard was the quarterback coach and offensive coordinator at Stanford University, where he played college ball.

Washington appears to be actively concentrating on the development of a young quarterback in addition to assembling an excellent coaching staff.

In addition to bringing back four players from the roster from the previous campaign, Washington has added 16 free agents. These players are Jeremy Reaves, Jamison Crowder, Cornelius Lucas, and Efe Obada. Kendall Fuller, Curtis Samuel, Antonio Gibson, Kam Curl, Jacoby Brissett, and Casey Toohill were all lost by the Commanders to other clubs….
