In what has been a very busy day here at Walker Sports we have recently received news that the Washington Redskins have found their new head coach.

This comes less than 12 hours after firing their previous head coach, Jim Zorn. 

Owner Bruce Allen seems hell-bent on improving the state of this shamed franchise as swiftly as possible.

According to reporters from 106.7 The Fan in Washington DC, Redskins Owner Dan Snyder's private jet landed at Dulles airport earlier today. Former Broncos coach Mike Shanahan proceeded to climb off the plane and enter a limousine with Snyder and drove off to a private meeting.

While there has been no official word if Shanahan has been offered the job, the Washington Redskins have never hid their strong feelings towards Shanahan.

In other news, a source out of Houston, Texas has stated that Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak has wished the best of luck to Offensive Coordinator Kyle Shanahan with his endeavors in Washington.

More to come.
