ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - The Washington Redskins have moved quickly in their pursuit of Mike Shanahan. The former Denver Broncos coach flew to Washington on owner Dan Snyder's plane hours after the team fired Jim Zorn.

Shanahan landed at Dulles International Airport near Redskins Park in mid-afternoon and was driven away in a limousine.

Shanahan is the team's top choice to replace Zorn, who was dismissed in the pre-dawn hours a day after Washington completed a 4-12 season with a 23-20 loss at San Diego.
