Washington Redskins potential coaching candidates to replace Mike Shanahan

On Monday morning, the Washington Redskins parted ways with Mike Shanahan as the team’s head coach. As soon as word broke that Shanahan was out, potential coaching candidates began to surface.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that the shortlist likely includes Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden, Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer, former Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith, and Stanford head coach David Shaw. The Redskins have already inquired about Shaw through a third party.

Sports Illustrated’s Doug Farrar likes Smith and Gruden, as well as Penn State head coach Bill O’Brien, Seattle offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, Baylor head coach Art Briles and former Arizona Cardinals offensive line and assistant head coach Russ Grimm. Grimm was relieved of his duties with the Cardinals following the 2012 season, however, he did play his entire career with the Redskins (1981-91). It’s hard to imagine an owner like Daniel Snyder making a hire like Grimm based off his history of going after big names.

Washington finished with a 3-13 record in 2013, however, is only a year removed from a 10-6 season and a playoff appearance. Whoever the Redskins decide to go with will have pieces in place to compete right away – especially if Robert Griffin III can shake off the sophomore slump and continue to develop as a quarterback.
