New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick and Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan have been fined by the NFL for their respective actions toward referees during Sunday's games. Belichick incurred a $50,000 fine for "impermissible physical contact with an official" at the end of Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens. Shanahan received a $25,000 penalty for yelling at officials in the final seconds of the Redskins' 38-31 loss. He then confronted an official in a stadium tunnel after the game. The fines were announced Wednesday. Neither coach will be suspended. Belichick grabbed line judge Esteban Garza's arm as he left the field after the Ravens' winning field goal. He later explained that he wanted to know whether the questionable kick, was being reviewed. Shanahan was cited for unsportsmanlike conduct for hollering at officials in the closing seconds of Sunday's loss, and for the confrontation in the stadium tunnel that followed. The league also announced Wednesday that Ravens coach John Harbaugh, who was called for unsportsmanlike conduct late in the fourth quarter, wasn't fined. Harbaugh admitted to accidently bumping an official while trying to call time out.
