After the Washington Redskins put a bow on an uninspiring 3-13 season including a horrible loss to the New York Giants, Mike Shanahan was summoned to meet with team owner Daniel Snyder. Shanahan was fired as the Redskins head coach and so ends his tumultuous reign as Redskins head coach. IN his career is Washington, Shanahan guided the Redskins to a 24-40 record with one division title coming in 2012.
According to the Redskins owner Daniel Snyder; “We thank Mike for his efforts on behalf of the Redskins. We will focus on what it takes to build a winning team, and my pledge to this organization and to this community is to continue to commit the resources and talent necessary to put this team back in the playoffs.”
And so ends a fiery tenure full of media, ownership and player debate for the Washington Redskins. Now that Shanahan is gone will the Redskins try to appease their star quarterback, RGIII, and bring in Art Briles, his former coach at Baylor, to fix this mess? Unknown at this time but all of Shanahan’s assistants will be meeting with Executive Vice President/ General Manager Bruce Allen.
