Shanahan No Longer A Coaching Candidate

As I reported on this past Friday, the NFL coaching carousel is in full swing, and former Denver Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan was a candidate for at least one of the inevitable vacancies come 2010.

The Buffalo Bills can eliminate one potential head coaching candidate.

Mark Gaughan of the Buffalo News is reporting that Shanahan let the Bills know about a week ago that he was removing himself from consideration for their head coaching position, which has been confirmed by a league source. Shanahan did have a pair of meetings on November 23 and 24 with team chief operating officer and general manager Russ Brandon, but in light of Shanahan’s decision, an additional meeting was cancelled.

I can honestly say that Shanahan’s decision didn’t really surprise me as the Bills are in genuine rebuild mode, which doesn’t fit Shanny’s style. Also, the Bills’ budget is minuscule compared to the budget that the Broncos had during Shanahan’s tenure there.
