CSN Bay Area reports Mike Shanahan is a candidate for the 49ers' offensive-coordinator vacancy.
That's Mike, not Kyle. NBC Washington's Dianna Marie Russini first had the news. It's hard to believe the 62-year-old Shanahan would be able to swallow his pride to be a coordinator, but stranger things have happened. It would be excellent news for Colin Kaepernick and company. Jan 16 - 1:43 PM

ESPN's Ed Werder reports the Bears are not considering ex-Redskins coach Mike Shanahan for their head-coaching vacancy.

Shanahan openly wanted to reunite with Jay Cutler in Chicago, and it made plenty of sense because the two had success together in Denver. After hiring Marc Trestman specifically to cater to Cutler -- and failing -- the Bears don't want to risk making the same mistake twice. The Raiders, 49ers, and Bills are three teams said to be looking into the elder Shanahan.
Jan 7 - 12:39 PM

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Bears are expected to interview Mike Shanahan for their head coaching vacancy.

The interview would take place after the Bears hire a GM to replace fired Phil Emery. It's unclear if Shanny will still be on the market at that point, as he's already garnered interest from the Bills, Raiders and 49ers. Shanny is interesting in Chicago as he drafted Jay Cutler 11th overall with the Broncos in 2006. The relationship lasted just three seasons, with Cutler going 17-20 as a starter before the Broncos fired Shanahan.
Jan 6 - 9:28 AM

A source informed John Middlekauff of 957 The Game Bay Area that Mike Shanahan could be hired as the Bills' general manager with Browns OC Kyle Shanahan as head coach.

Bills in-name GM Doug Whaley was reported to be leading the coaching search, but it's now been revealed new owner Terry Pegula is conducting interviews. The Bills have requested interviews with as many as 13 head-coaching candidates. The Shanahan duo wouldn't be awful in a head coach-offensive coordinator tandem, but allowing them to make all personnel decisions would require a huge leap of faith.
Jan 5 - 10:56 PM

Sources tell NBC4 that Mike Shanahan interviewed for the Raiders head coaching vacancy.

Shanahan has also garnered interest from the Bills and 49ers. The Oakland interview with Mark Davis and other team officials is a bit of a surprise as Shanny's first go-around with the organization was a short-lived disaster. He clashed with Al Davis and was fired just four games into his second season as coach (1989). Time has obviously healed wounds. The Raiders have also been linked to Tony Sparano, Jack Del Rio, Pat Shurmur, Eric Mangini, Todd Bowles, Pep Hamilton, Scott Linehan and Darrell Bevell.
Jan 5 - 12:27 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Bills are setting up an interview with former Redskins coach Mike Shanahan for their open head coach position.

Buffalo is moving quickly after Doug Marrone opted out of his contract on Wednesday. The team has already interviewed or scheduled interviews with Broncos OC Adam Gase, Seahawks DC Dan Quinn, Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell and Chargers OC Frank Reich. Shanahan will be added to that list, and there are reports the Bills are interested in Colts OC Pep Hamilton as well. With a playoff-caliber roster outside of the quarterback position, the Bills are an enticing option.
Jan 3 - 1:16 PM

CSN Bay Area reports the 49ers spoke with ex-Redskins coach Mike Shanahan on Tuesday.

Shanahan didn't have a formal interview, and it's unclear what the discussion was about, but we assume it's in regards to the team's head-coaching vacancy. The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported on Tuesday that Mike's son, Browns OC Kyle Shanahan, is also on the 49ers' list. Shanahan took the 2014 season off after compiling a 24-40 record in four seasons with the Redskins from 2010-2013. He coached in San Francisco from 1992-1994 as the 49ers' offensive coordinator.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports ex-Redskins coach Mike Shanahan "has very strong interest" to work with Jay Cutler again, and that he'd "quickly emerge" as a candidate in Chicago.

Back in July, Shanahan said he'd like to return to the NFL in a "situation where there was a realistic opportunity to win a Super Bowl." The Bears were billed as contenders for the Lombardi heading into the season, mostly because of their offense. Shanahan drafted Cutler in Denver and had a very strong relationship with the quarterback. Cutler almost landed in Washington when Shanahan went to D.C. If the Bears are interested in keeping Cutler around, expect Shanahan to emerge as a favorite for head coach.

Ex-Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said he wants to be a head coach again in the NFL.

"If I get back into coaching, it would have to be a situation where there was a realistic opportunity to win a Super Bowl," Shanahan said. "It would have to be with the right ownership." Shanahan isn't interested in taking over a rebuild like he did in D.C., or working for an owner like Dan Snyder again. But coming off a 24-40 stint with the Redskins and a power struggle with the franchise quarterback and Snyder, it might be hard for Shanny to find an owner willing to give him the keys to the Ferrari. Shanahan recently turned down a job with FOX.

Ex-Redskins coach Mike Shanahan turned down a job with FOX Sports.

Shanahan would have apparently been calling games with veteran play-by-play man Dick Stockton, but backed out early in the process. It could be an indication the 61-year-old Shanahan hopes to return to coaching, or just a result of burnout. Shanny has remained under the radar since his December canning by the Redskins, and appears poised to remain that way for 2014.

Redskins fired coach Mike Shanahan.

Everything started to go really downhill for Shanahan after he left a hobbled Robert Griffin III in last year's Wild Card loss to the Seahawks for too long. RG3 ended up tearing his ACL, and a frosty relationship between the duo ensued. As everyone knows, the franchise quarterback is always going to win out over the coach. So Shanahan's four seasons in Washington end with a 24-40 record, one playoff berth and far too much off-field drama. It's bad news for the fantasy prospects of both Alfred Morris and Pierre Garcon, as few coaches get more production out of their running game or "X" receiver. Bengals coordinators Jay Gruden/Mike Zimmer as well as Lovie Smith are already being linked to the Redskins, although owner Dan Snyder will be looking to make a bigger splash than that. There is some speculation that Snyder will target Baylor head coach Art Briles to reunite with college pupil Griffin.

"Multiple people familiar with the situation" tell the Washington Post that Redskins coach Mike Shanahan will be fired.

ESPN's Adam Schefter said as much on Sunday Countdown, suggesting the Shanahan move will take place sooner rather than later and is just "a matter of when," not if. The Post's report indicates Shanahan could be fired as soon as tonight, following Sunday's clash with the Giants. One source with "ties to the organization" expects the announcement to come on Black Monday.

"Several people familiar with the situation" continued to tell the Washington Post this week that they expect Redskins coach Mike Shanahan to be fired at season's end.

Shanahan told reporters Friday no meeting has been scheduled with owner Dan Snyder, yet, but he's still likely to be among Black Monday's coaching casualties. There is one scenario in which Shanahan might stay, per the Post, which would occur if he and Snyder "refuse to budge" on financial considerations. Shanahan is owed $7 million in 2014, and it is technically guaranteed.
Fri, Dec 27, 2013 04:40:00 PM

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Redskins coaches "all think" they're getting fired.

The purge is coming, but owner Daniel Snyder has decided to wait out troublemaking head coach Mike Shanahan. Shanny's name should be one of the first we learn on Black Monday.
Thu, Dec 12, 2013 07:51:00 PM

The Houston Chronicle's John McClain reports the Texans won't consider Mike Shanahan for their head-coaching vacancy if/when he's fired by the Redskins.

Shanahan has gone full George Costanza as he attempts to force his way out of Washington, but it apparently won't be to Houston. McClain has his finger on the pulse of the Texans like no one else in the media. According to McClain, candidates the Texans will consider are Lovie Smith, Stanford's David Shaw, Penn State's Bill O'Brien and Chargers OC Ken Whisenhunt. Shanahan's sour act — and perpetual losing — could mean his days as an NFL head man are through.
