Shanahan and Allen will work in tandem on all personnel decisions, but Shanahan will reportedly have the final say in what players will suit up for the Burgundy and Gold.
Speculation has already begun with regards to the coaching staff Shanahan will assemble. Son Kyle Shanahan is expected to join the team as the new offensive coordinator. He currently holds the same position with the Houston Texans. Also expected to come on board as the teamâ€™s new defensive coordinator is Mike Zimmer, who currently holds the same job with the Cincinnati Bengals.
Shanahan has a career record of 146-98. He went 137-86 with the Denver Broncos over a 14-year span that included his two Super Bowl victories. He also went 8-12 with the Los Angeles Raiders from 1988 to 1989; spending two tumultuous years working for the Raiders controversial owner Al Davis.
Shanahan will be introduced at a 2p.m. press conference at Redskins Park on Wed., Jan. 6.
