Shanahan to the ‘Skins?

December 18, 2009

The Denver Post is reporting that former Broncos coach Mike Shanahan is in serious discussions with the Washington Redskins to become their new head coach, in succession of current head coach Jim Zorn. That said, they are reporting there are still many issues to work out before the two sides will reach an agreement.

The biggest of which, would be that the season is not over for the Redskins, or at least, they still have to play 3 more games. They have been kicked out of playoff contention, but plan on playing out the rest of the season with Jim Zorn.

Last week, Redskins owner Dan Snyder began work on changing the franchise, when he fired General Manager Vinny Cerato with Bruce Allen. When this announcement was made, the common assumption made was that Shanahan would come as the head coach. Allen and Shanahan had also been talked to by the Buffalo Bills to fill their vacancies.

Shanahan coached in Denver for 14 years, winning two Super Bowls and having great success in partnership with Broncos owner, Pat Bowlen. Shanahan was fired last year by Bowlen after a 24-24 record over the past 3 years.

While I’d like Mike Shanahan to coach for only the Broncos, I’m sure Pat Bowlen would beg to differ. We are paying Mike Shanahan millions of dollars and will not stop, until he comes back into the NFL as a head coach.

We’ll keep you posted on this one.
