Mike Shanahan Wants to Coach in the NFL Again

Former Denver Broncos and Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan told USA Today's Jarrett Bell on July 25 he would want to coach a Super Bowl contender.

Mike Shanahan wants to coach in the NFL again. 

USA Today's Jarrett Bell made the revelation in his July 25 article

"While Robert Griffin III opened Washington's training camp this week with hopes to further distance himself from the disastrous 2013 season, the former coach he battled with is itching to get back into the game. 

"Mike Shanahan, dumped in January as Washington's coach after four seasons, told USA Today Sports he is hardly resigned to hanging up the clipboard. He wants to ultimately land another NFL head coaching job -- if the conditions are right. 

"'If I get back into coaching, it would have to be a situation where there was a realistic opportunity to win a Super Bowl,' Shanahan, 61, told USA Sports. 

"In other words, he's not interested in taking on the type of massive rebuilding job that he couldn't pull off in Washington. Shanahan posted a 24-40 regular-season mark in Washington (0-1 in the playoffs), including the 3-13 free-fall last season that was marked by his benching of Griffin for the final three games. Although Shanahan called it an injury prevention measure, nearly a year after Griffin suffered his controversial knee injury, the shutdown late last season underscored the fractured relationship with his quarterback. 

"Asked about Griffin, Shanahan said: 'I'm not going down that road. I'm going to let that play itself out. We'll see as time goes on.'

"Shanahan, living in Denver, said that beyond taking over a team with talent in key positions, there at least a couple other factors that he would desire as a coach to make a Super Bowl mission realistic. One would be salary cap room that would allow him to compete in free agency.

"Of course, in Washington, he inherited an older roster and was saddled by a $30 million cap hit over two seasons as the team's penalty for violating the spirit of the uncapped season in 2010. 

"The other essential element?

"'It would have to be with the right ownership,' Shanahan said. 

"He didn't mention Dan Snyder by name, but he didn't have to.

"This week, with the news that Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen has relinquished control of the franchise while suffering from Alzheimer's disease, Shanahan has reflected much on their years together and the impact of ownership. Shanahan spent 21 years with the Broncos, winning two Super Bowls during his 14 years as head coach. 

"'He let you do your job,' Shanahan said. 'Every resource that he had, he'd give it to you.' 

"Although Bowlen fired him after the 2008 season, Shanahan said there was so much that eclipses the turbulence that marked his departure from the Broncos. 

"'All of the good times,' he said, 'prevails over everything.'"

On July 15, CBS DC's Chris Lingebach wrote an article saying Shanahan almost became a FOX Sports NFL analyst alongside Dick Stockton: 

"Former Redksins head coach Mike Shanahan nearly stepped into the booth for FOX Sports as (an) NFL color commentator, this all according to play-by-play announcer Dick Stockton, by way of 106.7 The Fan's Grant Paulsen. 

"Meaning Shanahan could have possibly been calling Redskins games this fall.

"Paulsen, who previously covered the Redskins for 106.7 The Fan the past four seasons, ran into Stockton in the Philadelphia airport on Monday.

"He relayed his conversation Tuesday morning on his midday show on 106.7 The Fan, which his co-hosts with Danny Rouhler. 

"Here's that conversation, per Paulsen's account:

"Paulsen: I said,'Calling a game?'

"Stockton: And he goes, 'No, not today. I'm off until Friday. I've got a Yankees game.'

"Paulsen: I said, 'Oh, that's cool.' And so right then, I tell him, I said, 'Well, my name's so-and-so, I just was working at the All-Star event with XM Radio. I was working the dugout.' I presented myself just to have a conversation, let him know, basically, that I'm in the business. I didn't say I do a daily show in D.C., or anything like that. I said, 'I'm in radio, and have done some work, a big fan of what you do play-by-play.'

"And so he said, 'Oh, cool. Cool.' So we started talking. I was asking him about the big news that Erin Andrews had moved up, and he wasn't really giving opinions as much as saying, 'Yea, I heard about that kind of stuff.' 

"And then I said, 'Hey, what broadcast team are you on this year?'

"Stockton: And he's like, 'What do you mean?'

"Paulsen: I said, 'Well, who are you working with?'

"Stockton: And he's like, 'Well, that's a great question.' He's like, 'Normally I know by now.' He's like, 'I'm not really sure, yet.' 

"Paulsen: I said, 'Ah okay.' 

"Stockton: And he says, 'I was supposed to be working with Mike Shanahan, but it doesn't sound like he wants to do it anymore.' 

"'Dick Stockton in an airport, telling me -- and again, I didn't tell him, like 'I do a 10-2 show and I'm gonna mention this tomorrow' -- but I certainly didn't hide the fact that I'm in the business,' Paulsen said. 'And he just kind of offered that. He said, 'Yea, I was going to do it with Mike Shanahan, but it sounds like that's not happening anymore.'

"Paulsen went on to say he contacted someone close to Shanahan to confirm the news, learning, 'What I'm being told is that Mike Shanahan will not be calling games on FOX. That is not going to happen. But! At one point in time, there was at least a conversation. Could you have imagined? Shanny on the call of Redskins games in September?!'"

 

Shanahan, who helped Denver win consecutive Super Bowl titles in 1997 and 1998, has amassed a 170-138 (.552) win-loss record in 20 NFL seasons with the then-Los Angeles Raiders, Denver Broncos and Washington Redskins, per Pro-Football-Reference.com.   

Washington fired Shanahan on Dec. 30, 2013 after a dismal 3-13 season. The team wound up with 10 losses or more in three of his four seasons at the helm, per ESPN's John Keim.
