As expected, the Washington Redskins have fired Mike Shanahan.

Shanahan, whose teams were 24-40 in his four seasons, had fallen out of favor this season with Redskins owner Dan Snyder and star quarterback Robert Griffin III. The team finished 3-13 this season, losing its final eight games.

"Redskins fans deserve a better result," Snyder said in a written statement released Monday by the team. "We thank Mike for his efforts on behalf of the Redskins. We will focus on what it takes to build a winning team, and my pledge to this organization and to this community is to continue to commit the resources and talent necessary to put this team back in the playoffs."

Shanahan had a season remaining on his contract, which paid him about $7 million per year.

The Redskins plan to hold a news conference later Monday.
