The Washington Redskins have made some changes to the coaching staff, and it looks like cornerback DeAngelo Hall is amongst those happy to see head coach Mike Shanahan leave. Hall said on ESPN 980, via Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post, that he Shanahan “liked to micro manage things,” players and coaches alike.

Hall felt like Shanahan “handcuffed” defensive coordinator Jim Haslett and prevented him from succeeding.

“And like I told Haz years ago, when I was kind of getting handcuffed as a player, I told him I understand you’re getting handcuffed as a coach,” Hall said. “Imagine how I feel as a player being told that I have to do something a certain way, because I’ve always stressed to people that playing corner, it’s chess. It’s not let me stand right here and you catch this ball. … So Haz definitely understood where I was coming from as a player. And I felt him, because he definitely as a coach needs to be able to kind of play chess with the other coordinator too.”
