Coach Mike Shanahan has always been a great head coach. Many nay sayers have always thought that the only reason for his success was the great John Elway. With this in mind it will be very interesting to see what happens with coach Shanahan has planned for his new team, the Washington Redskins.
It will be quite interesting to see what coach Shanahan can accomplish with the Redskins offense seeing as how he has always been considered one of the greatest offensive coordinators in the NFL. The interesting thing about Mike Shanahans deal with the Redskins is that he has not only been given the position of head coach but he has also been given the title of Executive Vice President. Shanahan made his formal debut on Wednesday, one day after signing his contract and only two days after Jim Zorn was fired after a 4-12 season.
When he was asked about what he felt what the outcome of his stent with the Redskins would be he said “It doesn’t happen overnight,” “but we’re going to give it the best shot we have.” Head coach Mike Shanahan has head his fair share of rough times as a coach to go along with his glory and honor.He was fired a year ago after the Broncos missed the playoffs for the third straight season.
The great thing for coach Shanahan has to be the pay off. He has signed a five-year, $35 million contract so regardless of what happens he will fair well. All and all I think that the new relationship between Shanahan and the Redskins will be profitable for both parties, team and coach.
