Clayton: Shanahan Unlikely To Coach In 2009

ESPN’s John Clayton reports that fired Broncos coach Mike Shanahan is unlikely to return to the sidelines until “2010 or later.” Clayton believes the Jets could land Shanahan, but they appear primed to pry Steve Spagnuolo away from the Giants. Shanny doesn’t want to coach up a rehab project like Detroit, St. Louis, or Kansas City, so there aren’t many great fits out there. If Shanahan stays idle and collects the money the Broncos still owe him this year, he, Bill Cowher, and Mike Holmgren will likely all be available in 2010.
