Really? Wow. I'm surprised. I suppose he's off to Cleveland.

He would have been team president with final say over personnel, so Cleveland must be giving him more money. I've thought Cleveland for a while, long before the job was even open, but once Seattle came into the picture that did seem to be the ideal fit for him. I still think Holmgren was a bit hurt that he actually had to interview with the Seahawks.

Yeah, that's what I am thinking too. Unless BA has been amazed by Zorn, and made nice to Holmgren I jest

Ironic, they take the job away from him when he's head coach only to offer it a few years later.

i thought he didn't want to be on the west coast anymore anyways, plus imo the browns have more upside than the hawks as far a player personel

I would love for this to be a farce and the Redskins hire Holmgren as their HC.

Seattle only offered "Team President with final say on personnel? Instead of offering more money maybe Cleveland offered the GM spot? It was reported Holmgren was looking for a front office job possibly a GM position.

Pass.. Why hire a guy who just retired last year and has indicated that he's not interested in coaching but would prefer a FO position?

It looks like it's gonna be Shanny, especially after the Cowboys win tonight so you don't have to like it but you're gonna learn to love it cause it's the best thing going.. WHOOOOOOOOOOOO!

I rather have Shanahan than Holmgren. Holmgren has lost the last 2 superbowls he was in. He could of possibly lost his first one also If it wasn't for Desmond Howard's 250+ return yards IMO.

Re: Report: Shanahan to DC done deal

I wasn't aware of this, but it's been pretty obvious the Redskins don't want to spend a month looking for a new head coach again

Redskins Insider - Sources say Gray interviewed for Redskins' head-coaching job

Re: Report: Shanahan to DC done deal

ESPN reporting JZ is definately not coming back as Head Coach. I believe he will follow Holmgren where ever he goes, Zorn that is.

Now as far as Mike Shanahan goes, I am going to say it is a lock. He will be our next head football coach.

I can't wait to see his zone blocking scheme implemented into the Redskins offense. Plus Shanahan is a master at finding solid RB's in the later rounds (not including Maurice Clarett).

Re: Report: Shanahan to DC done deal

I am stoked about the move as a whole. I am a little taken back that all of the info about who are next coach is and Zorn a dead man walking got into the media. The one thing I have to find comfort in is this is going to be a completly revamped football team by the end of January. I like that we will all be able to rest a little easier knowing our team is in the hands of competent people going forward.

Brude Allen and Shanny in control. Putting in their pieces of who will run the offense, defense, and all the postion coaches. Then the staff can move forward and develop a plan as to how they will move forward with the team in player evaluations, scouting, and a RESTRUCTRING of our current roster.

I do not know how they will do in the coming years, but I can be optomistic and hopeful for our future as a winning franchise. Bruce is a winner as a GM and we will have a coach with winning history. If Kyle comes in we could have an heir apparent as well bringing continuity to our franchise.

The players in these few remaining games need to play hard, because they all get a chance to audition for the 2010 Washington Redskins. We have some pieces in place, we have FA, and we have the draft. They can rebuild some of this team quickly say 2 years to have a good deep team, and with the players we have in place we can win right away.
