The Washington Redskins have fired head coach Mike Shanahan and his staff after his team finished the season 3-13 on Sunday . The news came out early Monday morning via the Washington Post’s Mike Jones.

In four years as the head coach Shanahan finished with a combined 24-40 record, including 3-13 this year after losing the final eight games in a row.

We will focus on what it takes to build a winning team, and my pledge to this organization and to this community is to continue to commit the resources and talent necessary to put this team back in the playoffs.
