Anyone wanting to be the next head coach in Washington may have to get a stamp of approval from Robert Griffin III.

That’s the word from backup quarterback Kirk Cousins, who said after Mike Shanahan was fired that Griffin and owner Dan Snyder will have input in determining who the next head coach will be.

“I’m sure Mr. Snyder and Robert and those people will have a lot of input as to who the hire is,” Cousins said, via Adam Schefter of ESPN.

It should go without saying that Snyder will have a lot of input into the next head coach, but Griffin’s involvement in the interview process may lend credence to the idea Griffin has too much power within the organization. When reports surfaced in December that Shanahan had been so unhappy at the end of the 2012 season that he considered resigning, those reports said Shanahan was particularly concerned about Griffin’s relationship with Snyder.
