Kyle Shanahan looks to focus on Redskins playoffs before possible interviews

Coming off the heels of a Division Title, Kyle Shanahan would likely have a number of suitors vying for his services as a possible head coach candidate.  However, according to Rich Campbell of the Washington Times, he will likely not be interested in doing so until after the Redskins post season run has concluded.

As seven NFL head coaches lost their jobs by Monday afternoon, Redskins coach Mike Shanahan implied offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, his son, wouldn’t agree to any interview requests until after Washington’s playoff run ends.

“At least my opinion, at least this is my feeling when I was an assistant, it’s not time to interview during the season,” Mike Shanahan said. “It’s time to concentrate on your job. After the season is over with, I think there’s plenty of time for all those things. That’s my gut feeling.

“You’ve got a job to do, and you should do that first. But after the season is over, if somebody wants to interview him or something along those lines, I think it’s great opportunities for assistant coaches to interview for head coaching jobs.”
