Earlier this week, Redskins coach Mike Shanahan answered a question about his son, offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, interviewing for head coaching jobs by saying he thought the time for that was after the Redskins’ season came to an end.
That suggests the Redskins would block Kyle Shanahan from interviewing for interested teams next week if the Redskins beat the Seahawks this Sunday. That doesn’t seem to be a problem for the younger Shanahan. Grant Paulsen of 106.7 The Fan reports that Kyle Shanahan parroted his father’s feelings about an assistant interviewing for head coaching jobs while his team was still in the playoffs.
Shanahan said, via Mike Jones of the Washington Post, that he isn’t sure if any teams are interested in speaking to him because he doesn’t have an agent and hasn’t picked up his phone in the last six months. When the Redskins’ season does come to an end, that’s going to make for an awful lot of voice mail to sift through all at once.
