About 15 minutes after the Redskins announced they have relieved Executive Vice President/Head Coach Mike Shanahan of his duties with the team, Shanahan made a statement to the media at Redskins Park.
“First off, I’d like to thank the fans,” Shanahan said.
“Through the first couple years, you go through some rough times. I can’t tell you how supportive this fan base is. And to be able to coach here… in front of fans like that, that support you the way they do, made me feel very special.”
Shanahan went on to thank Daniel Snyder for an opportunity to coach the team and thank the players for their efforts.
The former coach talked about the team’s issues with the salary cap, the progression of the franchise under his direction and positives for the future of the Redskins.
Watch video of the full statement below and follow @Redskins for updates throughout the day. Executive Vice President/General Manager Bruce Allen will address the media at 2 p.m. ET.
