The Redskins have added two quality control coaches to the staff: Bill Khayat works on the offensive side and Matthew Shea serves on defense.
Khayat enters his fourth season in the NFL after spending the previous three years with the Arizona Cardinals as offensive quality control coach.
Khayat's family has ties to the Redskins organization. His father, Eddie, played defensive tackle for the Redskins in 1957 and 1962-63. (Eddie went on to be head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles in 1971-72.)
His uncle, Robert, was also a kicker for the Redskins in 1960 and 1962-63.
Bill Khayat previously spent four seasons at Tennessee State as running backs coach/recruiting coordinator (2003) and tight ends coach and video coordinator (2000-02).
Khayat was a standout tight end at Duke University and twice named to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference second team. He was an honorable mention All-American pick in 1994.
Following graduation from Duke, he spent time on the practice squads for the Kansas City Chiefs (1996) and Carolina Panthers (1997). In 1998, he played for the Barcelona Dragons of NFL Europe.
Shea moves from the Redskins' video department for his first coaching job. He began his NFL career as assistant video director with the Redskins in 2004.
Shea was responsible for the taping and editing of all games and practices. In addition, he compiled video for the Redskins' coaches and personal department prior to free agency.
During the 2006 season, to go along with his video responsibilities, Shea worked closely with the defensive coaching staff in game preparation and on game day.
Shea joined the Redskins after working for Pinnacle Systems, where he implemented video network solutions for many NFL teams. He received his bachelor degree in history from the University of Minnesota-Morris, where he was a three-year letter winner in football and team captain during his senior season.
Khayat and Shea replace Coy Gibbs and Kirk Olivadotti in the quality control positions. Gibbs left the team to pursue interests in racing and Olivadotti was promoted to linebackers coach this offseason.
