Wouldn't have worked, and wasn't necessary anyway. Shanahan was the Vice President of Football Operations. He wasn't taking a demotion. He didn't need to because when he was fired, he finally had a group that was making some good decisions and approaching the draft the right way.

The only thing Shanahan needed was one more year to use the record amount of draft picks and salary cap room that he had stockpiled. Even if we had fired him the next year, this organization would be light years ahead of where it is right now.
