There has been talk for weeks that University of Baylor Head Coach Art Briles — the college coach of Robert Griffin III — might be the next head coach of the Washington Redskins if Mike Shanahan were fired at the end of this season. Briles, who just led his team to a conference championship, also just got a lucrative and long-term contract extension from Baylor. But he probably has an out to pursue an NFL job if an offer is there. Is it true that Briles is heading to DC? Are the Redskins preparing to embark on what some will say is The Great Steve Spurrier Experiment, Part 2?

Well, CBS NFL Insider — and former Redskins reporter for the Washington Post — Jason LaCanfora thinks it is very definitely possible.
