It looks like Kyle Shanahan is going to be spending a lot of time in the next few weeks hanging out in a college town in Texas. And, no, the former Longhorn wide receiver not going back to school.
Chick Hernandez of Comcast SportsNet is reporting that the Redskins’ offensive coordinator will be in Waco, Texas, the home of Baylor University and one Robert Griffin III, frequently between now and the NFL draft. Hernandez tweeted the following:
Source tells me Redskins Kyle Shanahan in Waco Tx. tonite Will visit RG3 couple times each week for next several weeks. #playbooktime
So it appears that class will be starting early for the Redskins’ presumed quarterback of the future.
The fact that Shanahan is spending time with Griffin indicates the level of confidence that the Redskins organization has that the Colts are going to take Andrew Luck with the first overall pick. Jim Irsay’s public Hamlet routine notwithstanding, if they believe that there was any chance that Indianapolis would pull a shocker and draft RG3, they would not be spending Kyle’s time and the resources to teach the offense to a possible future Colt.
