Shanahan Hires Three Assistants, Including Kyle Shanahan

Matt Mosley of ESPN reports that new coach Mike Shanahan was busy today, hiring three assistants:

We’ve known for a couple weeks that Kyle Shanahan would be offensive coordinator for the Redskins because that’s what his father told us during his opening news conference. But the Redskins made it official when they sent out a press release Wednesday.

The club also announced that Jon Embree would coach tight ends and Matt LeFleur would be the quarterbacks coach. Mike Shanahan praised LeFleur for the work he did with Matt Schaub and Andre Johnson. I remember Embree playing for Colorado in the early 90s. He played a couple of seasons with the Rams and he eventually ended up coaching tight ends in Kansas City. Embree worked with one of the greatest tight ends in league history in Tony Gonzalez. He was with the Chiefs for three seasons.
