Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that three NFL teams in need of a head coach are interested pairing Mike and Kyle Shanahan together.
According to Cabot, Mike would be team’s head coach, while Kyle would be the team’s offensive coordinator, much like their situation Washington a few years ago.
- John Middlekauff reports that Mike Shanahan could take on a general manager type of role with the Bills and hire his son, Kyle, as the team’s head coach.
As of now, Mike has drawn interest from the 49ers, Raiders and Bills regarding their head-coaching vacancies, and ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Buffalo has requested permission to interview Kyle for the job as well.
Mike has also come up as a potential option for the Bears, but the two parties have yet to schedule an interview.
It’s worth mentioning that Kyle is currently the Browns offensive coordinator, and in order for him take the same position with another team, Cleveland would have to let him out of his contract.
An interested club could offer Kyle a promotion such as assistant head coach, which would prevent this from being a lateral move.
We’ll have more updates regarding the Shanahan’s as the news is available.
