Shanahan: No Plans to Resign as Redskins Coach

ASHBURN, Virginia — Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan says he has no plans to resign.

Shanahan said Monday it's "accurate" that he doesn't plan to quit after what will be his third losing season in four years.

Shanahan reiterated, however, that his fate won't be determined until he and owner Dan Snyder talk about the direction each wants the team to take.

The Redskins are 3-11 and have lost six straight.

Shanahan has one year remaining on his five-year, $35 million contract.

Shanahan also says there's no quarterback controversy, despite Kirk Cousins' strong performance in Sunday's loss to Atlanta. Robert Griffin III is sitting for the rest of the season.

The coach says, "Robert is clearly our starting quarterback. ... Let's not get carried away with one game."
