On Thursday, both of Washington coach Mike Shanahan’s top lieutenants met with the media for their weekly press conference. And both picked words suggesting that it was their final weekly press conference.
As noted by Rich Tandler of CSNWashington.com, both offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan and defensive coordinator Jim Haslett distanced themselves from the organization, intentionally or accidentally.
“It’s been a great experience being with him,” Kyle said of his four years working with his father. “It’s something that I’m definitely glad that I had — or have had.”
Haslett, who likely will be gone even if the Shanahans stay, was less careful.
“I do think they have the nucleus to have a good team,” Haslett said.
He is still part of the “they,” at least for now. By Monday, however, the Shanahans and Haslett may no longer be among the “they” who are working for the Redskins.
