There was a bit of a stir around Centennial Airport, which is right down the street from the Broncos’ facilities, when the Washington Redskins’ corporate plane showed up today. The Redskins suffered an embarrassing loss to the Lions yesterday, and a certain former Broncos coach lives just a few miles from the airport.
However, the plane was not in town to whisk Mike Shanahan back to Washington. Redskins spokesman Zack Bolno confirmed the plane was in Colorado but said it was not being used by the team. He explained the plane is used by several different companies for business, and that’s the reason it was here today. Bolno said the plane is going to Minnesota tomorrow.
“It’s unrelated to the Washington Redskins,” Bolno said.
Shanahan, who was fired after last season, has said he wants to coach again, perhaps in 2010. Many have speculated that the Redskins are a possible destination.
