Pay per head services know that Shanahan has one year remaining on his contract, but he believes that the issue will be settled shortly after the Redskins’ season finale on Sunday against the New York Giants.
“I’m sure it will,” he said. “But you’ll have to ask [owner Dan Snyder]. I can’t answer that.”
It remains to be seen whether that means within a couple days or hours after the finale, but it won’t be set back for long.
Washington are 3-12 as they enter Week 17, and 24-39 overall with Shanahan as coach. Price per head sportsbooks can see that out of the past four seasons, they’re ending their third one with a double-digit loss. The Redskins again became a drama, and Shanahan does not want this to happen under his tenure.
However, in recent weeks there were stories about Shanahan’s wish to quit after last season, his dislike of QB Robert Griffin III’s relationship with Snyder, and the problems between himself and Griffin. Pay per head services saw that it turned into a side drama as Washington’s season unraveled to the point that they’re in the midst of a seven-game losing streak — tied for the longest in the franchise since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970.
But Shanahan said that he still wants to return, and many price per head sportsbooks would like to see this happen.
“No, I’ve told you from day one, I love these guys,” Shanahan said. “We’ve been working extremely hard to put this thing together. We’ve had a couple of bumps, which we all know, with the [$36-million] salary cap [penalty]. But I’m looking forward to building this team. Like I said, I’ll get the chance to sit down with Dan at the end of the season and we’ll go from there.”

Pay per head services know that it’s a big turnaround from this time a year ago when Washington were in the midst of a six-game winning streak and on their way to the NFC East title. Now they’re 0-5 in the division.
