Did Kyle Shanahan's relationship with RGIII affect firing?

The unemployment line continues to grow at Redskins Park. First thing Monday morning Redskins owner Dan Snyder decided to fire head coach Mike Shanahan, and a few hours later, word came out that offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan was fired as well. 

Kyle Shanahan, Mike's son, became a source of much speculation in the Redskins coaching drama as his relationship with quarterback Robert Griffin III was rumored to be shaky. 

While his tenure ended poorly in Washington, Kyle Shanahan remains a relatively bright young talent in the offensive coordinator role, and he could end up with a similar job for another organization.
