Almost seven months after being fired as the head coach of the Redskins, Mike Shanahan says he's open to coaching again in the NFL. With a few conditions.

"If I get back into coaching, it would have to be a situation where there was a realistic opportunity to win a Super Bowl," Shanahan told USA TODAY Sports.

That rules out a rebuilding project, which would presumably mean the options would be limited because coaching vacancies don't often appear on Super Bowl-caliber teams without a special set of circumstances.

Shanahan also told the paper that he would be willing to take a chance with the "right ownership." His relationship with Redskins brass was well-documented, especially in the waning months of his tenure that included the benching of quarterback Robert Griffin III.

Redskins training camp commenced under new head coach Jay Gruden this week in Richmond.
