left presumably for the last time. his replacement could be named in relatively short order. the player personnel boss a few weeks ago was fired or resignation was forced. two hours after that, bruise allen was named as his successor. could it be that later today we could see mike shanahan named as 7th head coach of dan snider era with washington redskins. that's been the rumor. shanahan who won two super bowls with the broncos could be the man. we hear his son would be the new offensive coordinator and assistant with bengals would be the defensive coordinator and that shanahan for some time had a full staff in waiting ready to pounce when the opportunity became official. jim zorn relieved of his duties earlier this morning, leaving the premises after talking with some assistant. we will have continuing coverage as we have had since
