Former Denver Broncos and Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan reportedly turned down an offer to announce Redskins games on Fox NFL.
Former Denver Broncos and Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan has kept a low profile since his firing from the Redskins, but it was recently revealed that he was offered an announcing gig with Fox NFL.
The 61 year-old would have received the opportunity to announce Redskins games with Dick Stockton, but turned the job down.
Shanahan was willing to work with Stockton at first, but he eventually decided that the media position was not of interest.
According to CBS, the news was revealed by Washington D.C. radio host Grant Paulsen, who had a chance meeting with Stockton at Philadelphia airport, and asked him who would be his commentary partner.
CBS suggest that Shanahan not wanting to announce for the Redskins may have to do with his relationship with quarterback Robert Griffin III, which went sour in Shanahan’s final days at the team.
The pair were not on speaking terms in December, and it is not known if they have made up since.
