Embattled Redskins coach Mike Shanahan, who put the finishing touches on a 3-13 document with an uninspiring loss to the Giants in Week 17, could know his fate in hours not days. He informed reporters Sunday that he'll meet with staff owner Dan Snyder early Monday morning to discuss his job status. Based on TheMMQB.com's Peter King and FOX Sports activities' Jay Glazer, Shanahan is anticipated to be fired at the moment.
The coach has made it clear that he has no plans to resign. That will have something to do with the $7 million he has remaining on his contract, in addition to the truth that he'd like to repair the mess he is created in his four years in Washington.
"I've instructed you from Day 1, I really like these guys," the coach stated final week. "We've been working extraordinarily exhausting to place this factor together. We have had a few bumps, which we all know, with the salary cap [penalty]. However I am looking forward to building this crew. Like I mentioned, I'll get the possibility to take a seat down with Dan on the end of the season and we'll go from there."
We've joked in current weeks that Snyder ought to carry Shanahan again simply to keep away from paying him $7 million but when Shanahan is indeed despatched packing, Robert Griffin III's coach at Baylor, Art Briles, might be in the combine to switch him.
Since coming to Washington in 2010, Shanahan is 24-forty, and that features the 7-zero finish to the 2012 season thanks, in large part, to RG3.
