The Washington Redskins fired Mike Shanahan on Monday morning, bringing to an end the tenure of a coach who four years ago seemed likely to return a once-proud franchise to its winning ways.
The Redskins have announced that offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan is among eight assistant coaches who will not be retained.
Hours after Mike Shanahan was fired, general manager Bruce Allen said Monday the search for his replacement would begin immediately and noted that the "open list" would include candidates from the professional and collegiate ranks.
In a game Washington absolutely had to have against Oakland, LeonardHankerson made his contribution. A key catch in the third-quarter was one of his four receptions on the day and set up the go-ahead score on a touchdown pass to Pierre Garcon. The Redskins were down 14-10 at the time.
U.S. Rep. Mike Pence of Indiana said Thursday he will not seek the Republican nomination for president in 2012.
"As a result he's been much more consistent with regard to catching balls that are in his frame," McDaniel said. "That, in combination with how much he owns the offense, knows when he's supposed to separate and when the quarterback is looking to him, makes him a very reliable, consistent target to get open."
"[Hankerson] is a natural runner. He has route running instincts that you can't coach," McDaniel said.
