    Default Report: Shanahan was offered and turned down the Redskins job

    Report: Shanahan was offered and turned down the Redskins job
    By MJD

    Sooner or later, Jim Zorn's going to get canned like some cheap tuna. It could happen at any time, really. It could be at the end of the season, or it could be before I hit "publish" on this post, but it's happening.
    According to one report, it would've happened already if Mike Shanahan was willing to take his job right now. Thomas George at FanHouse quotes "a Redskins management source" who says that the Redskins have already made a play for Shanahan, but that he didn't want the job in mid-season.
    "Shanahan told the franchise there was little he could do in the middle of the season for them and that changing coaches during the season in the NFL rarely works,'' a Redskins management source told FanHouse. "Several people that Dan Snyder trusts have suggested, if he makes a move, he should turn it over to secondary coach Jerry Gray. That could still happen."
    And what a treat that would be for Jerry Gray.
    I don't know if I believe the report or not, but it doesn't seem unbelievable. Then again, there's not much that Dan Snyder could do that I would find shocking. It wouldn't shock me if he hired Shanahan. It wouldn't shock me if he hired Wayne Fontes. It wouldn't shock me if he took over as head coach himself. It wouldn't shock me if he traded for Vince Young(notes) and named him player/coach.
    The Redskins play the Eagles on Monday night, then head into a bye week. My best guess for the timing of Zorn's firing is Monday night around midnight.

    It's pretty classless to be looking for a HC replacement while he's still coaching.

    Dan Snyder's a ****ing ******, no big surprise. If he wants Zorn out of there, fire him now and have an assistant take over - just like Shanahan said.

    I agree with you. The DC news reporters think that if Zorn quits Snyder can get out of paying him his deal. 3.5 more years at 3 million per.

    So, Snyder, king of overspending wants to (See Antwaan Randle-el 7 year million dollar signing bonus as a #2 receiver)

    Snyder is a first class choad. If I was Jim Zorn and had 9 Million remaining on my deal until you fired me, I wouldn't go anywhere!

    The deadskins are a raiders-in-training team.

    Snyder is the new Davis.

    I think Shanahan is destined for San Diego. Norv can't possibly survive the season. What he has done to the Chargers is a crying shame.

    I think Shanny would enjoy getting two cracks at Denver and Oakland twice a year. Plus, who wouldn't want to live in San Diego?
