Watch: Jay Gruden temporarily forgets which team he’s coaching

Jay Gruden was introduced as the new Washington Redskins head coach on Thursday, replacing Mike Shanahan and becoming the team's eighth head coach since Daniel Snyder purchased the franchise in 1999.

This past week must have been an emotional roller coaster for Jay Gruden.

Sunday started off with the excitement of the Bengals playoff game against San Diego, which quickly turned into dissappointment and sadness after his team lost. Then there was probably some anxious or nervous feelings during the interview with the Washington Redskins, but that turned into jubilation once he was offered the job as their new head coach.

Again, a pretty crazy week.

So please forgive Mr. Gruden, Redskins fans, for temporarily forgetting which team he was coaching in one of his first interviews with the new gig.

"The only thing I can do is be Jay Gruden, coach these guys up, and hopefully make the Raider nation — Redskin nation — very proud," Gruden said during the interview.

It could have been much worse, he could’ve said Dallas.
