If this is any indication of who will be playing for the Redskins next year, get prepared for buying new jerseys! It was announced during Mike Shanahan's press conference that his son, Kyle, would be joining the coaching staff as well, but was not official until yesterday.
Kyle Shanahan joins the Redskins as the new Offensive Coordinator (replacing Sherman Smith). Kyle was the Houston Texans' offensive coordinator for the last 2 years.
The Redskins have also hired Matt LaFleur as the new Quarterback coach (replacing Jim Zorn's work) and Jon Embree as the new Tight Ends coach (replacing Scott Wachenheim). LaFleur was with the Houston Texans the last two seasons as offensive assistant. Embree was with the Kansas City Chiefs from 2006-2008 as TE coach.
That's a LOT of AFC coaches so far!

I lived in Greene County Virginia for about 5 years of my childhood. This span of time was enough to imprint the love of the Washington Redskins (and hate of the Dallas Cowboys) into my life forever, even though I am Canadian and still live in Canada. I am in no way an expert on sports, football, or even the Redskins, but I do absolutely adore them, their fans and their home state(s). My favourite Redskin is and will always be Darrell Green (not because we share the same last name lol). I've adored Chris Cooley since he joined the team from the 2004 draft and love London Fletcher. Hail to the Redskins! See you October 30th in my home town of Toronto.
