5 Coaches to Replace Fired Mike Shanahan in Washington

Shanahan leaves the Redskins with a 24-40 record in four seasons
5 Coaching Candidates to Replace Fired Mike Shanahan in Washington.

The Mike Shanahan Era ended weeks ago in Washington when the first reports surfaced of a rift between him and owner Dan Snyder. The rift was apparently over Robert Griffin III, the franchise quarterback, and there was no way that the coach could survive being on opposite sides of the owner over that.
 
Maybe it was never meant to last anyway. They are two high-profile NFL people with major personalities and an apparent need for control. Things sure looked rosy in 2012 when they won a division championship, though we later learned that the seams were popping, even then.

A three-game losing streak for Green Bay? During head coach Mike McCarthy’s tenure, such a slump was once deemed unthinkable. But that’s their reality in 2016, a Packers team that seems to be struggling with issues as basic as motivation.

Heading into this season not much was expected within a rebuilding NFC East. You had the Eagles trade away their starting quarterback, choose to go with rookie Carson Wentz and adjusting to a first-year coach.
