Just Shanahan? Someone told me the entire defensive staff was fired? Forgive my ignorance, but I won't rest until I read that Slowik is gone.

Slowik is gone, Capers and Nolan are taking his place. Dennison is most likely gone, crossing my fingers hoping that Turner and Bates stay.

Everybody in the coaching staff pretty much. A few offensive coaches were not actually fired by McDaniels will be able to let them all go and replace them if he wants to. The front office is unchanged.

The team officially filed termination papers on all assistents except the ones on offense that Bowlen would prefer to keep. So Bates, Turner, Dennison, and Tuten are still on the payroll.

Everyone else is bye bye with Johnson the DL coach already getting a job in New Orleans.

That's the first and last time I bet that I'll see de-virginizing used with the term "glow".

Well we have learned one thing. They don't update the website frequent enough. They had Powell on PUP long after the window closed. So I wouldn't trust the website.

He must have pics of somebody. Simply no other way to explain it.

No one has been officially fired. But there were credible reports that the search committee planned to ask the new coach to give consideration to Dennison, Bates and Turner ... pending their interviewing with the new coach. That's the real scoop, Khan.

Also saw an article from about a year ago where McDaniels talked about having met Jeremy Bates someplace, a scout combine or something, and he liked him - said he was really smart.

I haven't seen anything official on Capers... Nolan however is said to be the next DC. I don't have the link handy but it's on Rotoworld.

There was also a story that said two league sources confirmed that temination papers had been filed for all but the above coaches. Stupid work is getting in the way of me getting the story though.

Someone's been fired because Johnson was hired by New Orleans. You can't hire someone if they're still under contract.

Nope, Shanahan was the only firing announced ... you can always release a guy from his contract.

Gawd I'm glad we released Johnson

Work pays the bills, son

That would be a scoop ... but why would they do that unless McDaniels has signed off on it? Maybe he did.

Bill Johnson wasnt fired. He was on the list of coaches that were "urged" to be retained.
