The Washington Post reported Sunday that head coach Mike Shanahan would “definitely” be fired by the Washington Redskins, and it now appears the move has been officially made:

"“I’ll get a chance to talk to Dan,” Shanahan told media members after Sunday’s 20-6 loss to the New York Giants. “And after I talk to Dan, hopefully I’ll get a chance to talk to you guys, and you guys can ask me all those questions you’ve been wanting to ask me for a while and I’ll get a chance to answer them.”"

The Redskins finished the season 3-13, the worst of Shanahan’s four years as head coach. Shanahan finishes his tenure in Washington 24-40. He has one more year on his five-year, $35 million contract.

To recap the head coaches fired thus far, the Minnesota Vikings have fired Leslie Frazier, while the Cleveland Browns have shockingly parted ways with Rob Chudzinski.
