ASHBURN, Va. — Greg Manusky is returning to the Washington Redskins as outside linebackers coach.

Manusky is a former player and, later, linebackers coach for the Redskins, who announced his hiring on Friday.

The Dallas High School grad was the defensive coordinator for the Indianapolis Colts the past four seasons. He also held that title with the San Francisco 49ers from 2007-10 and the San Diego Chargers in 2011.

He was Washington’s linebackers coach in 2001.

Manusky was a star linebacker at Dallas in the mid-1980s and at Colgate where he was an All-American. He went undrafted but carved out a 13-year NFL career with Washington, Minnesota and Kansas City as a special teams standout and linebacker.

Manusky began his NFL coaching career in 2001 as linebackers coach for the Redskins and held the same position with the Chargers from 2002-06. He had previously interviewed for head coaching positions.
