Kyle Shanahan wants to be head coach
ASHBURN, Va. (AP)
Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan says he's ''definitely'' interested in exploring head coaching opportunities once Washington's season is over.
Shanahan could be a candidate for one or more of the seven NFL openings based on his successful season molding a creative offense around rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III.
Shanahan said Thursday he didn't know until he read it in the media that his father - head coach Mike Shanahan - declared that assistants shouldn't interview while the Redskins are still playing.
Kyle Shanahan would be hard to contact anyway - he says he doesn't have an agent and hasn't answered his phone ''in about six months.''
But the 33-year-old says he'd like to be considered and is ''looking forward to having that opportunity after the season.''
