Following the 45-10 shellacking at the hands of the Kansas City Chiefs, the end appears to be nigh for Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan and his staff. Falling to 3-10 on the season, Shanahan's record with the 'Skins stands at 24-37, which puts him at a near-Jim Zorn level of failure.
Though the ax has yet to fall, Shanahan's exit is a foregone conclusion, and the team must seek a new head coach capable of fixing the flaws and turning the Redskins from chumps to champs.
With any luck, the Redskins won't struggle to find anyone interested in the job because of the talents of Robert Griffin III and Alfred Morris in particular. Washington's pursuits will range from promising college coaches, NFL coordinators ready for a shot and experienced former coaches looking for their next gig.
Here is a look at some possible candidates to replace Shanahan as the Redskins' head coach.
