ASHBURN, Va. - The Washington Redskins have fired coach Mike Shanahan after a 3-13 season.

Shanahan was dismissed Monday after meeting with team owner Dan Snyder.

Shanahan went 24-40 in four years in Washington, but his greater failure was an inability to restore order and professionalism to a franchise that has often been in disarray for the last two decades.

The Redskins finished last in the NFC East in three of Shanahan's four seasons. The outlier was 2012, when a seven-game winning streak at the end of the regular season won the team its first division title since 1999.

Shanahan had one year remaining on his five-year, $35 million contract.

Snyder will now be seeking his eighth head coach for his 16th season as an NFL owner.
