Former Hokie Kyshoen Jarrett lands first full-time coaching role with Redskins

Kyshoen Jarrett played four years for the Virginia Tech Hokies from 2011-14, becoming a starter in the secondary during his sophomore year. Jarrett would go on to be a three-year starter for Bud Foster’s vaunted defense. A former All-ACC performer, Jarrett ended up being a sixth-round pick of the Washington Redskins in the 2015 NFL Draft.

While the odds appeared to be a bit long for Jarrett to make an immediate impact for the Redskins, he had other ideas. Much like his time in Blacksburg, Jarrett made an immediate impact on special teams. In the Redskins’ run to the NFC East title back in 2015, Jarrett would actually become an integral part of Washington’s secondary.
