The Redskins today named Ray Wright as their head strength and conditioning coach.

They had interviewed Bill Romanowski, who had played for Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan in Denver, for the position.

Wright spent the past eight seasons with the Texans. He was named the Texans’ head strength and conditioning coach in 2009 after serving the previous seven seasons as the team’s assistant strength and conditioning coach. Wright will oversee all aspects of the Redskins’ workout program, getting the team in peak condition for training camp and throughout the upcoming season.

“The position of strength and conditioning coach demands a combination of youth and experience, and Ray delivers on both of those,” Shanahan said. “He has learned from some of the best in the business, and he has incorporated their teachings into his own philosophies. We expect him to bring out the most from our players, starting with their offseason conditioning and continuing through the entire season.”

This marks Wright’s second stint with the Redskins as he originally entered the NFL in 1997 as a scouting intern with Washington. He was promoted to college/pro scouting administrator in 1998, then to the club’s director of player programs in 1999.
