Dan Snyder Fires Mike Shanahan

Dan Snyder Fires Dan Shanahan
Another American joined the ranks of the unemployed today as Dan Snyder, owner of Washington DC’s NFL team (the one with a racial slur for a name), fired coach Mike Shanahan.

Mr.Shanahan was the 7th head coach under team owner Snyder since he bought the franchise in 1999. Sounds like the franchise needs a new owner much more than a new coach. A new name wouldn’t hurt, either.
