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 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.

Washington went 3-13 last season, finishing last in the NFC East. The franchise is essentially starting over, both on and off of the field, including a name change.
