After a day of meetings between Redskins owner Daniel Snyder and free-agent coach Mike Shanahan, significant progress is being made toward Shanahan becoming the 27th coach in franchise history.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Shanahan has summoned agent Sandy Montag to D.C. to meet with G.M. Bruce Allen to hammer out a deal.
We’d previously heard that the document already has been prepared, with Shanahan set to make more than $10 million per year on a five-year deal. But, hey, for that kind of money it makes sense for the agent to at least make a cameo appearance, especially if he’s billing by the hour.
