According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan isn’t in a hurry to become a head coach and some people around the league believe that at the age of 33,  he’s too young right now.Publicly, the younger Shanahan hasn’t sounded too interested in other jobs, and I’m told privately he hasn’t, either. Based on talking to people around the league, the view from many is that he’s just a bit too young and not quite ready to be a head coach.Though, few doubt the impressive job he’s done with RG3. And talking to people close with Shanahan, it doesn’t sound like he’s in a hurry to go anywhere. It would be hard to turn down a firm offer for a head coaching job if one came. But Shanahan — who has excelled with the Texans and with theRedskins – might want to continue learning from his father. And, of course, he might be considering the possibility that he is part of the succession plan in Washington. That is not the craziest of thoughts. Anyway, my point is that for a few reasons, I’d be surprised if Kyle Shanahan pops up in the middle of this coaching carousel in a serious way, though it’s no way a reflection of the job he’s done.Lets’ be honest Mike Shanahan isn’t going to coach the Redskins forever, it might make sense for Kyle to wait until he retires and then take over. Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })(); sr_adspace_id = 1000005525107; sr_adspace_width = 300; sr_adspace_height = 250; sr_ad_new_window = true; sr_adspace_type = "graphic";
