As expected, Washington Redskins football coach Mike Shanahan was fired on Monday after a quick 9 a.m. meeting with Dan Snyder at Redskins Park.

Shanahan had a 26-42 record in four seasons. Although the Redskins, with rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III, made the playoffs in 2012, the team was an NFC-worst 3-13 in 2013.

Shanahan has a year remaining on his five-year, multimillion dollar contract.

The Redskins will now look for their eighth coach sine Snyder bought the team in 1999.
