Twitter reacts to Commanders’ coaching staff hires

Washington Commanders owner Josh Harris said one of new coach Dan Quinn’s strengths was his ability to bring elite people with him to Washington.

In two weeks on the job for the Commanders, Quinn has put together an impressive coaching staff consisting of two former head coaches (Kliff Kingsbury & Anthony Lynn) and four former coordinators (John Pagano, Ken Norton Jr., Brian Johnson & Larry Izzo), along with other respected coaches from around the NFL.

Quinn’s staff features a good mix of young and veteran coaches. Except for Washington’s hiring of offensive line coach Bobby Johnson — formerly of the Giants — the fan base has been excited about most of the hires.

Washington’s staff has been widely praised across the NFL, too.

On Wednesday, the Commanders hired Lynn, Darryl Tapp, and Tom Donatell. New GM Adam Peters also hired Lance Newmark away from the Detroit Lions as his assistant GM. Fans were having a good time with the moves.

It’s indeed a new day in Washington.

Here are some of the best reactions across X — formerly Twitter — regarding the Commanders’ new hires.
