Al Messerschmidt/Getty Images(ASHBURN, VA.) — After a tumultuous run, the Mike Shanahan-era is over in Washington as the Redskins have fired their embattled head coach on Monday morning.

“Redskins fans deserve a better result,” owner Dan Snyder said in a statement. “We thank Mike for his efforts on behalf of the Redskins.”

“We will focus on what it takes to build a winning team, and my pledge to this organization and to this community is to continue to commit the resources and talent necessary to put this team back in the playoffs,” the statement continued.

Since being hired back in 2010, Shanahan had just one winning season with the Redskins when he went 10-6 last season and won the NFC East thanks to a seven-game winning streak. But overall, Shanahan went just 24-40 coaching the team.

Shanahan also had a reportedly rocky relationship with Snyder as well as quarterback Robert Griffin III as the Redskins finished the 2013 season just 3-13, they’re worst season since 1994.

This also continues the downfall for Shanahan post-John Elway. When Shanahan had Elway as his quarterback, he went 47-17. Without him, he’s gone 123-121 since he retired.
