According to Mark Maske of The Washington Post,  people in and around the Redskins organization believe head coach Mike Shanahan will be coaching his final game for the burgundy and gold on Sunday.

As the Washington Redskins made their final preparations to play Sunday’s season finale, people in and around the organization were increasingly convinced late Saturday that Mike Shanahan was about to coach his final game with the team.

Shanahan is expected to be fired as soon as Monday.

The Redskins refused to give a definitive word on Shanahan’s job status. But one person with ties to the team said he expects Shanahan and the Redskins to part ways as soon as Monday.

That person, speaking on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to comment publicly on the team’s behalf, characterized Shanahan’s departure as definite.
