In what shouldn’t be considered much of a surprise, the Washington Redskins will fire head coach Mike Shanahan and his coaching staff on Monday.

A growing rift developed between owner Daniel Snyder and the head coach, mainly due to the Robert Griffin III saga.

Washington finished the regular season with a 4-12 record and in last place in the NFC East. It also won’t have a first-round pick in the 2014 NFL draft after dealing it away in the RGIII trade.

It remains to be seen how many higher-profile coaching candidates will take this vacancy seriously. As you already know, Snyder is a hands on owner. That rubs some the wrong way.
