Report: Mike Shanahan interested in coaching again

Mike Shanahan

Mike Shanahan could reportedly make a return to the sidelines next season.

According to’s Albert Breer, Shanahan wants to coach again, and he may get the chance. He interviewed for the 49ers job last year and was impressive enough to make the Niners consider giving him the job.

There are issues to a potential Shanahan hire. He’s 63 and the staff he’d want would give teams pause. However, Breer notes that, despite his tenure in Washington ending badly, he left a pretty good core of players there and did the same in Denver. Breer notes that Shanahan was fired in Washington was in large part because he wanted to go with Kirk Cousins as his starter, which time has shown to be a completely valid wish.

There’s been a willingness to hire older head coaches in recent years. Just look at how well Bruce Arians is doing in Arizona. Don’t be surprised if Shanahan gets another look.
