3 teams interested in Mike Shanahan and son Kyle as package deal
Tuesday January 6th, 2015

Three teams are considering reuniting former Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan with his son, Kyle, as part of a package deal, reports the Cleveland Plain Dealer’s Mary Kay Cabot.

Kyle Shanahan is currently the offensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns and is still under contract with the team. According to the report, the San Francisco 49ers, Oakland Raiders and Buffalo Bills are considering hiring both Shanahans, with Mike as the head coach and Kyle as the offensive coordinator.

The two spent four seasons with the Redskins before parting ways with the franchise at the end of the 2013 season. The three interested teams have interviewed the elder Shanahan, who did not coach last year.

Before his stint with Washington, Shanahan went 138-86 during his 14 seasons with the Denver Broncos, coaching the team to two Super Bowl titles. He also coached the Raiders in the late '80’s.

Cleveland’s offense this season ranked 23th overall in Kyle Shanahan's first season with the team and dealt with injuries to center Alex Mack and tight end Jordan Cameron. The team also had to contend with wide receiver Josh Gordon’s suspension for the majority of the season.

The Browns were also plagued by inconsistent quarterback play from veteran Brian Hoyer and rookie Johnny Manziel. The team finished 7-9, the 12th straight season Cleveland has missed the playoffs.
