Two-time Super Bowl winning head coach Mike Shanahan is courting a huge amount of interest from NFL teams, it has been revealed, with Shanahan in the process of interviewing for several NFL vacancies.
Shanahan guided the Denver Broncos to back to back Super Bowl wins in 1997 and 1998, before embarking on an unsuccessful head coaching career with the Washington Redskins, which saw his reputation as a coach take a hit.
But Shanahan is now looking to resurrect his coaching career, and has interviewed for vacancies at the Oakland Raiders, San Francisco 49ers, Buffalo Bills and is also set to interview with the Chicago Bears. It's understood at this stage that the 49ers are his favored destination.
