The Raiders and 49ers are among three teams considering Mike Shanahan as head coach and his son Kyle as offensive coordinator, according to a report Tuesday in the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Kyle Shanahan, 35, is currently offensive coordinator of the Browns and would have to be let out of his contract after one season to accept a job working with his father.
The Buffalo Bills, who according to ESPN requested an interview with Kyle Shanahan to be their head coach, are the third team in the equation. All three teams have already had discussions with Mike Shanahan.
The Shanahans worked together from 2010 through 2013 with Washington and it wasn’t always smooth.
The NFL Network reported at the end of last season Kyle Shanahan wanted to escape the “stigma” associated with working under his father and chart his own course.
When Robert Griffin III was benched near the end of the 2013 season, Kyle Shanahan told reporters he was frustrated with the decision and had nothing to do with elevating Kirk Cousins to starting quarterback.
