The fines announced Wednesday come as the league and its referees’ union are meeting amid reports they are close to ending the lockout of the regular officials.
Belichick grabbed an official’s arm at the end of Sunday night’s game after the Ravens kicked a winning field goal. Shanahan was cited by the league for “abuse of officials” in Washington’s loss to Cincinnati.
“Whatever the league decides to do, I’ll respect and just try and do my job,” Belichick said before his fine was announced.
On Monday, the league fined Broncos coach John Fox $30,000 and defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio $25,000 for berating officials during a loss to Atlanta on Sept. 17.
