SHANAHAN TO REDSKINS: STOP PARKING IN HANDICAPPED SPACES

April 20, 2010

Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan has instituted several new rules for his new football team. Shanahan says those rules are intended to instill discipline and “make players accountable for their actions.”

Rule Number 1: Players are no longer allowed to park their cars in the handicapped parking spaces at Redskins park when they come to practice.

MIKE SHANAHAN

After 14 years and a pair of Super Bowl Championships Mike Shanahan has been fired as coach of the Denver Broncos.

The story is shocking on its own, but even more so in that it was originally reported by a little-known blog called the National Football Post. Shanahan’s job seemed to  be safe. Even though the Broncos lost their last three games to blow a playoff spot, Shanahan enjoyed a close relationship with Broncos owner Pat Bowlen and had almost $20 million left on his contract. Many doubted that Bowlen would ever fire Shanahan.

Obviously, Shanahan wasn’t the Broncos “coach for life” many thought.
