Kyle Shanahan: "Definitely" Interested In Being Head Coach

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -- Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan says he's "definitely" interested in exploring head coaching opportunities once Washington's season is over.

Shanahan could be a candidate for one or more of the seven NFL openings based on his successful season molding a creative offense around rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III.

Shanahan said Thursday he didn't know until he read it in the media that his father -- head coach Mike Shanahan -- declared that assistants shouldn't interview while the Redskins are still playing.

Kyle Shanahan would be hard to contact anyway -- he says he doesn't have an agent and hasn't answered his phone "in about six months."

But the 33-year-old says he'd like to be considered and is "looking forward to having that opportunity after the season."
