Chris Mortensen Backs Off Report On Shanahan To The Chiefs

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen has backed off his report that the Chiefs are in contract negotiations with Mike Shanahan. After Mort said earlier Friday that Shanahan was close to joining the Chiefs, NFL Network’s Adam Schefter categorially said that Shanahan isn’t returning to coaching in K.C. Mort now admits some of his “five sources” say a marriage is unlikely and the sides may not have even spoken. There looks to be interest from Kansas City’s side, but it doesn’t appear to be mutual.
