PFT: Report: Shanahan, 'Skins strike a deal


Well, it took a little longer than 114 minutes, but the Redskins reportedly have a new coach.Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports that the Redskins and Mike Shanahan have reached an agreement in principle that makes Shanahan the replacement...

Below is a link to the Denver Post article-makes for some interesting, and possibly insightful, reading. Here's an example;

Shanahan is to receive a five-year contract from the Redskins at approximately the same salary he had during his final contract with the Broncos. He was drawing approximately $7 million a year with Denver — and still had three years remaining on his deal when he was fired nearly a year ago.The Broncos will pay approximately $3.5 million each in 2010 and 2011 to essentially have Shanahan coach the Redskins. Then again, Bowlen will also save roughly $3.5 million each of the next two years now that their former coach is no longer unemployed.

With the Redskins, Shanahan will work in concert with general manager Bruce Allen much as he did in Denver with Broncos general manager Ted Sundquist from 2002-07. During that six-year Shanahan-Sundquist run, the Broncos compiled five consecutive winning seasons, three consecutive playoff appearances, and a 58-38 record. The Broncos went 13-3 and hosted the AFC championship game in 2005 — the last time they played in the postseason.

In that business partnership, Sundquist oversaw the draft, contracts and roster construction, but Shanahan had final say authority on every decision.

I like the way the Denver Post says, "Shanahan will work in concert with Bruce Allen much as he did in Denver with GM Ted Sunquist". That's what we want, teamwork. So far what I hear I like.
106.7 reporting that Bruce Allen will be a "pawn," according to the almighty "NFL league source, with knowledge of the situation," and that Shanny will have final say on all football matters.
so far so good and who will be the team president now

stay tuned i guess
Suggested WaPo headline for tomorrow: NFL Football Returns To DC After Decade-Long Hiatus

No offense intended to Coach Gibbs BTW. After all, he did get the closest of anyone so far to bringing NFL level football back to DC under Snyder.
