Shanahan waiting on Cowboys, 2010?

From the Kansas City Star coverage on possible candidates to succeed fired head coach Herm Edwards and the chance Mike Shanahan is in the mix:

The ink had not even dried from the Chiefs’ news release announcing Edwards’ dismissal when ESPN started reporting the club had talks with Shanahan, and then backtracked by saying the Chiefs were merely “targeting” Shanahan, who is still due about $20 million on the remaining three years of his contract with Denver.

 “I know Shanahan loves to coach, and I know he loves coaching in the AFC West, and I know there’s nobody he’d like to beat more than his former employers,” former Broncos offensive lineman and ESPN analyst Mark Schlereth said by phone Friday night.

 “Who knows? Is that the best situation for him? I don’t know. Should he hold out and maybe get the Dallas Cowboys job (next year)? Maybe. … People say the Chiefs aren’t a talented team, but I disagree. They’re a young, inexperienced team, but they have some young talent … who would know better than Mike Shanahan where they are.”

herm edwards left a gold mine in kansas city, just like tuna with the cowboys, whoever is the next head coach of the chiefs will weep the gold mine that herm left. denny green left a gold mine for the current coach of the super bowl bound cardinals (aka dungy left a gold mine for gruden in 2002, yet could not do anything with it afterwards). i think the chiefs will be the surprise team (aka dolphins) next season.
