According to Mark Maske of the Washington Post, it continues to look like the Redskins will in fact fire head coach Mike Shanahan after this season.
Several people familiar with the situation continued to say this week they believe it’s likely that the Redskins and Shanahan will part ways. Some of those people said they think the scenario by which Shanahan might stay is if he and Snyder refuse to budge on financial considerations.
It is believed that Shanahan would be paid for the remainder of his contract, estimated to be worth about $7 million per season, if he is fired and would forfeit that money if he resigns. He has said he does not intend to resign.
Even if Shanahan some how stays, they’ll still likely be some major changes to the Redskins coaching staff.
It has been speculated that Shanahan will make significant changes to his coaching staff, perhaps with new offensive and defensive coordinators, if he does stay. So it appears almost certain the Redskins are facing widespread changes. They also have a large number of players eligible for free agency, particularly on defense.
