Washington Redskins: 5 Coaches Who Won’t Replace Mike Shanahan
5 Coaches Who Won't Be Replacing Mike Shanahan in 2014
To say that the Washington Redskins have a mess on their hands, would be putting it lightly. The train has come off the tracks in a big way for Redskins in 2013 and many are pointing the finger at Mike Shanahan. Rumors have recently emerged regarding the head coach and it sounds like he nearly walked away from his job after the 2012 season. Now with three games left in 2013, many think it's only a matter of time before news comes across that Shanahan is done for good in DC.
The latest in the great Washington collapse is Shanahan's decision to bench to Robert Griffin III for the rest of the season. Kirk Cousins will start the final three games and many are reading into what that might mean for the Redskins. I believe it is in fact an audition for Cousins, but not one for the starting QB job in Washington. I think he's getting the nod to not only protect RG3, but also to provide the franchise with some trade bait.
The Redskins are a team desperately in need of high draft picks next season. They currently don't have a first-rounder because of the RG3 trade in 2012 and Cousins is the only player they could realistically trade to get a first or second round pick in return this year.
As for Shanahan, the speculation has already started as to who might replace him. I'm not sold that he will be fired, but if he does get canned, here a five coaches that won't replace him. Their names will be brought up, but just go ahead and disregard them:
Gruden is committed to being a MNF announcer for at least another season. He is not going to Washington to coach RG3. But people will connect the dots, because he's also said that he would trade a first round pick for Kirk Cousins.
Holmgren is retired from coaching and after a failed attempt in the Cleveland front office, he could be done in the NFL for good.
Cowher has been out of coaching since 2007. It's likely going to take the perfect situation to bring him back to the sidelines, and that situation is certainly not in Washington.
Billick has also been off the sidelines and in the announcer's booth for quite some time now. I think he's more likely to go back to the Vikings before he would accept the job in Washington. That's if he ever even coaches again.
Smith is a defensive guy and the Redskins certainly need help on that side of the ball, but I just don't see him going to Washington. The Texans reportedly have real interest in the former Bears' coach and that pairing makes more sense than one in DC.
