Shanahan Says He’ll Be Back, But Passed Up Chances for Interviews

Seems that former Broncos coach Mike Shanahan is not taking unemployment all that well.

“Will work for food. That’s my motto,” Shanahan told CBS4 in Denver Friday. “I want to coach again. I’m not sure what opportunities are going to be open next year or the year after that. I’m just trying to stay on top of my game.”

It’s the first public comments from the coach that led the Broncos to two Super Bowls. He was fired by the team back in January after he and owner Pat Bowlen could not see eye to eye on issues.

Don’t expect to see Shanahan not on the sidelines for long, as he told NFL.com’s Steve Wyche he passed on chances to interview after the season, but will be back.

“It’s just something that my gut didn’t feel right. I probably needed a little time to get away, especially with the way the situation wound up in Denver. I’m glad I did.”

And we’ll see if the team firing him ends up biting them in the end.
