Report: Raiders, 49ers considering Mike Shanahan as head coach with Kyle Shanahan as O-coordinator

Share

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.

    Also, If you’re a fan in the IE, that’s a long drive.

  • Cervantes74

    The best candidate for the job from this list of candidates is Jack.

    It’s not really close.

    I try to give people a fair shake. I get caught up on people disagreeing with my opinions… and go overboard… its part of the fun to me. But a few hours later if its something I agree with, I hope I say that too. Especially if the opinion is backed with SUBSTANCE.

    But yes, hiring Shanni would be the final straw. These games for the most part are like watching paint dry. On purpose…

  • marks hair

    it’s like I’m having a bad dream an Freddy Krueger’s the school bus driver. Why even get upset I’m fĂșcked.

  • Boar Hunter aka TUCK YOU

    Like in Office Space, the glitch has been fixed, he won’t be getting a pay check, so it will work itself out.

  • scooboy

    Shannahan as HC, Norv as OC, Rob Ryan as DC. AFC West reunion! !

  • Gdog

    Here’s my leg… hump away!

    Pryor > Flynn!

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    Go to The Game, 95.7 and listen to today’s segment.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Who do you worship? Or is that only for people liking players you don’t?

  • Cervantes74

    It was reported to LA Times that the approved specs specifically were for 2 teams.

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    ESPN article says they going for a team to play in 2016 with that team playing temporarily at the LA Coliseum for 2015.

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Agreed at this point in his career that is for sure. MS has had a great career but aside from the read option rookie year for RGIII he bombed in Washington.

  • marks hair

    I cant stand to listen to people talk over each other. Which is what you’ve just described and I’ve heard Papa before he’s terrible.. pass

  • ComptonRaider

    F-No

  • Gdog

    If Shanni gets Reggie fired, I might reconsider.

  • Morilla_00

    yeah, guys on the radio here in SD were reporting construction wouldn’t be done until 2018.

  • Cervantes74

    There is no bigger middle finger to the fanbase than ratboy. Refuse to believe we’re even considering it.

  • Gdog

    Madden = serious sheet.

  • Boar Hunter aka TUCK YOU

    Romo played for Mike and won 2 rings with him, what else is he going to say

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    I saw also that SD claims they have nine owner votes to stop it.

  • Cervantes74

    What if md is toying with ratboy just to tell him he’s got the job, have him fly out, and then pull the rug because he already signed Jack? Tell me how much love we’d give that dude for that!

  • Gdog

    For people younger than 40. And YOU.

  • Miamiraider78

    It’s obvious that Tommy Boy wants to change the whole perception of the Raider brand. No more quarrels or suing the league, this or that. He’s building the bridges back up and doing it his way. His way hasn’t started out well because it’s just following the same amount of losing since 2003. He needs to get this right, we need to start winning.

    Enough is enough.
    Put your pants.
    10 and then.
    FIRE REGINALD NOW!

  • scooboy

    I was joking

  • RaYdAFoELyPh

    1 last bread bowl together at pier 39. To see if they can reach on a agreement..

  • Morilla_00

    heard the same thing. They are afraid Spanos wants to block it because he wants to leave.

  • DJ Johnny

    Mark: “What do u think about Shanahan”?
    Madden: “You get a coach who’s won a superbowl, put him together with some good players and BOOM!”
    Mark: “That’s good enough for me. Thanks as always John”.

  • 909RaiderLifer

    The drive TO Inglewood wouldnt be to rough by SO-CAL standards…The drive back would be a beyotch….

  • 619raider

    Its starting to get to that point. They will get good when they get good. No more wishful thinking going into any year. Just hope they get lucky with their hire. There is obviously no design or plan for anything. Just wildly shooting in the dark hoping for a hit.

  • JV.

    Sums it up.

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    It’s obvious he wants his qb put in the best situation possible and the D guys are iffy on that.

  • lol I just realized I have been preaching that for some time and its going down fast, southwest, brotten,shantherat.

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    Ahem. You forgot:

    SIGN POTET!

  • marks hair

    three years later Derek Carr is on heroin.. the team hasn’t won 12 games.. shanarat is dead,. Mistaken for a vampire.. mark hasn’t noticed

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    LoL

  • Dakota

    Who will Ratface choose as a sacrificial lamb in training camp? Someone to embarrass in order to assert his dominance over the players? In Washington it was Haynesworth.

    Jano wind sprints?

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    Got my answer from the tweets listed on The Game’s site. It was Romo’s wife.
    Those wanting to listen to the whole thing, it’s the final hour of the Lund-Romo program, which isn’t up right now. Probably will be up w/in this hour or the next.

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    I don’t like it either, but what was good was what came out of it.

  • Dakota

    Put your pants!

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    new post.

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    You’ll notice we signed Palardy awfully early…

  • marks hair

    there’s so many underachievers it’s hard to pick

  • Miamiraider78

    I agree that more than anyyhing else, we need to perfect person to groom Carr into a successful franchise QB. Everything else can be worked on over time but Carr is key, just don’t key the Carr.

  • Boar Hunter aka TUCK YOU

    Anybody that worships anything having to do with sports has serious problems

  • LAto_TheBay

    I’m a bit tired of all the ‘ran RG3 into the ground,’ ‘played him while injured’ BS.
    Did somebody hold a gat to Bob’s head to play? In the old days, you’d play hurt because you wanted to win. Everyone knew the risks and yet RG3 trotted out there with the other 10 guys, coaches, ownership, fans looking on.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    So by extension, only those that like players you don’t have serious problems.

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    We have high character guys. Haynesworth was a check casher.

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Coaches call…. You are like a battered wife seriously that is on the HC. Did you see what happened with a college coach that let a player play injured? Be tired all you want that is on him.

  • Raidertalk

    Right now its 4th and 29 for this franchise and Mark Davis is the Quarterback huddling with John Madden, and Reggie Mackenzie getting ready for the final play.

  • DutchRaid

    Sio Moore…
