The Redskins' next head coach may come from the college ranks.
According to a report from CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, Washington is expected to inquire about Stanford's David Shaw for the team's head coaching vacancy.
Shaw has been the head coach of Stanford since 2011. He took over for current Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh, who left Stanford for the San Francisco 49ers head coaching job. In eight seasons at the helm for the Cardinal, Shaw sports an 86-34 record with three Pac-12 titles.
Although the Redskins may have Shaw on their shortlist of preferred coaches, the organization could very well struggle to land the head coach of their choice. According to Finlay, the Redskins current front office structure has made potential candidates wonder whether they could be successful in the organization.
The Redskins will have a new head coach in 2020, but that seems to be the only thing that's certain about the entire process.
