The Washington Redskins have fired Mike Shanahan as their coach, according to a member of the organization.

The move had become increasingly inevitable in recent weeks and was made official Monday.

Shanahan had said Sunday he was scheduled to meet Monday morning with Snyder. The coach pulled into the parking lot at Redskins Park around 9 a.m. after being stuck briefly in a line of vehicles with media members who’d been kept outside the front gate until then. Snyder had arrived at the facility earlier.

The Redskins part ways with Shanahan after four years in which he had a regular season record of 24-40. He and the Redskins also suffered a playoff defeat last season to the Seattle Seahawks.

Shanahan led the Redskins to an NFC East title last season but the team slipped to last place this season, losing its final eight games to finish 3-13. Shanahan’s relationships with Snyder and quarterback Robert Griffin III came under intense scrutiny.
