Washington coach Mike Shanahan met the media today but declined to answer repeated questions about his status as the coach in Washington, now and in the future.
As reporters pressed him about the fallout from the odd ESPN report claiming he had cleaned out his office last year and was planning to quit because he didn’t like the relationship between team owner Dan Snyder and quarterback Robert Griffin III, Shanahan said all he’s focusing on is Sunday’s game against the Falcons.
“I’m not going to speculate through all those different things,” Shanahan said. “If you’d like to talk about Atlanta I’ll be more than happy to talk about Atlanta.”
Shanahan did confirm that he talked to Snyder today and said their relationship is good, but he declined to go into specifics.
“I’ve talked to Dan,” Shanahan said. “Our conversation will stay between us.”
Shanahan did not directly address whether he considered quitting at the end of last season, or whether he wants to return next season.
