Mike Shanahan?

I have to say that I was stunned that Mike Shanahan was fired from the Denver Broncos today. I wasn't stunned based on the Broncos' recent performances. I was very surprised that Shanahan, who seemed to have complete autonomy on personnel and roster moves in Denver, got the hook. It looks that the Sports Guys' 5-year moratorium on complaining after your team wins a title finally ran out on Shanahan, as it's now been 10 years since Denver's last Super Bowl victory.

However, let's ask a crazy question - should Tim Brewster try to bring his old boss to Minnesota? I realize that Shanahan will likely end up with the Jets or (I hope) the Lions, but it would be delicious irony if Brewster could bring in Shanahan to replace Dunbar and help the new "Running Game Coach" implement a hard-nosed running style.

Imagine those shiny teeth in recruit's family rooms. Honestly, Minnesota would be the home of the shiniest teeth in football coachery again after our loss of Glen Mason.

I'm certain the Shanahan ego wouldn't allow being a college offensive coordinator. But it doesn't mean Brewster shouldn't make the call.

Editors of The Daily Gopher retain the right to remove posts deemed excessively offensive or grossly inappropriate. Keep it clean and don't be mean.
