The Redskins part ways with Shanahan after four years in which he had a regular season record of 24-40. He has been under the guillotine since the Redskins suffered a playoff defeat last season to the Seattle Seahawks.
Shanahan led the Redskins to an NFC East title last season only to suffer the aforementined loss. This season the e team plummeted to last place , losing its final eight games to finish 3-13. Shanahan’s relationships with both Snyder and quarterback Robert Griffin III have been under intense scrutiny.
Shanahan had one season remaining on a five-year contract estimated to be worth about $7 million per season, which is insignificant to afranchise with such a storied past.
