Darrel Young’s Criteria For New Coach

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 6, 2014 – 1:40 pm

(AP)

Fullback Darrel Young‘s ideal head coach would have to have one trait.

In an interview with CSN Washington, Young said he wants a coach that wants him.

“I just want… a guy that uses a fullback,” Young said.

“Coach (Mike) Shanahan and Kyle (Shanahan) found ways to put me in the offense. They found ways to get me involved in the running game. I did some good things versus San Diego, caught a pass versus Philly for a long touchdown completion. (They) just did some things and put myself in some scenarios, from a coaching standpoint, that made me feel good. I just want a coach that comes in and believes in me, believes in what we’re trying to do, believes in the players that he has. Of course with new coaches comes new change. We all understand that.”

 

Young also talked about difficulties with the offense in 2013, finding a role he never imagined and his reaction to the team relieving Shanahan of coaching duties.

General Manager Bruce Allen: ‘It Is My Job To Find The Next Head Coach’

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 30, 2013 – 3:22 pm

Brucehand

Executive Vice President/General Manager Bruce Allen had a “painful” day he said was fitting for a “painful” season.

Allen met with Owner Daniel Snyder and Mike Shanahan at 9 a.m. Monday morning to relieve Shanahan of his duties to the franchise. The GM met with assistant coaches throughout the day, then addressed the media four hours after the dismissed coach made a statement.

Allen stressed that that every member of the organization had a part in a 3-13 season. He spoke to the media about how the franchise has begun its search for a new head coach, what the criteria for that position will be and what the club will learn from a regular season full of distractions.

He talked about how the world of sports lends itself to instant evaluation, how to create stability and how NFL teams can complete quick turnarounds.

“First off, I’d like to thank the fans,” Shanahan said.

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.

Coach’s Turn: Mike Shanahan At The Mic

Posted by Stephen Czarda on December 23, 2013 – 3:17 pm

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan has never been in a situation like this. .

Currently on an seven-game losing streak, this marks the longest winless streak of his Hall of Fame worthy career.

Against a Dallas Cowboys team that players and fans alike wanted nothing more than to send packing to their offseason homes early, the Washington Redskins fell by one single point.

One…for a second straight week.

Whether it’s the offense’s roller coaster performance, the defense failing in clutch late game situations or the special teams hemorrhaging yardage, this season is far from the predicted playoff run by most at season’s beginning.

Per the usual, Monday marked an extensive recap press conference where  Shanahan discussed quarterback Kirk Cousin’s approach, the offensive line’s collective performance, meshing offense with strengths, the final Cowboys drive, Will Compton moving up to the active roster, Brian Orakpo’s injury and more.

Here’s video and a quick Twitter summary (@Redskins):

(AP)

Mike Shanahan was a bit late, but he had a good reason.

The head coach entered his Thursday press conference and explained he had been discussing the health of rookie tight end Jordan Reed with team physician Dr. M. Anthony Casolaro and head athletic trainer Larry Hess.

Shanahan elaborated on the status of Reed’s concussion symptoms, talked about waiver wire acquisition J.D. Walton and explained his process of evaluating practice to fill the 45th spot on the active game-day roster.

Mike Shanahan On Cousins, RGIII & Future

Posted by Stephen Czarda on December 16, 2013 – 3:26 pm

(AP Image)

On Monday, Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan addressed the media for his usual press conference dissecting the highs and lows of the game just completed.

Obviously there was a lot to discuss between Kirk Cousins’ performance, Brian Orakpo adding to his sack collection, both Alfred Morris and Santana Moss having an up-and-down day and the seven turnovers almost being overcome by a late drive–but an unsuccessful two-point conversion instead left the Redskins with nothing more than a “morale victory” if you believe in those things.

Shanahan dove head first into the sea of media sharks and addressed everything that was thrown his way.

Ryan Kerrigan Talks Shanahan, Defense

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 16, 2013 – 2:44 pm

Kerrigan AMRyan Kerrigan appeared on NFL AM Monday morning and talked about his sanctuary.

With a quarterback change attracting added media attention in 2013, Kerrigan told the NFL Network crew that the football field is the best place to be.

“It’s tough to have all the distractions around, but at the same time, once you step in between the lines, that’s kind of our sanctuary,” Kerrigan said.

We kind of get away from all the distractions and just concentrate on playing football once we get in between the lines.”

The panel asked Kerrigan if the locker room was still behind Executive Vice President and Head Coach Mike Shanahan, and Kerrigan supported the man who brought him to D.C. Read more »
