Schottenheimer was fired Sunday night after he refused to renegotiate a clause in his contract that gave him ultimate authority on player moves. That clause was touted by owner Dan Snyder when he gave Schottenheimer the title of director of football operations, but 12 months of debatable decisions made Snyder reconsider his decision.
Spurrier has said he doesn't want to be anything more than a coach. After spurning Snyder's overtures a year ago, the former Florida boss reached an "agreement in principle" on a five-year contract worth about $25 million, a Redskins source said on condition of anonymity.
The Redskins also will hire a general manager.
Schottenheimer will receive the $7.5 million remaining on the four-year contract he signed a year ago. The Redskins went 8-8 in his only season, becoming the first NFL team to go from 0-5 to 5-5.
The Chiefs signed offensive specialist and ArenaBowl XV MVP Terrill Shaw to a two-year deal. The 6-foot, 175-pound Shaw was to return to the Rampage for his first full season before signing with the Chiefs.
"I'm not going to sleep for a week," said Kelly, who closed with an even-par 70 on a balmy day at Waialae Country Club.
Playing on his 36th birthday, Craig Parry went to the 18th hole in the New Zealand Open in Paraparaumu Beach one shot behind Michael Campbell. When he walked off the final green, Parry had a two-shot lead after his own birdie and Campbell's double-bogey at 17. Parry finished with a 68 for a four-round total of 273, 11-under on the par-71 course. Tiger Woods, thwarted by greens that wouldn't give him a break, shot a 69 to finish in a tie for sixth, six strokes behind Parry.
Two opening-round games will be today (No. 2 Scott County Central vs. No. 7 Kelly at 5 p.m., No. 3 Scott City vs. No. 6 Chaffee at 8 p.m.). The final first-round game at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday pits No. 4 Delta against No. 5 East Prairie.
The semifinals will be Thursday and the championship game at 8 p.m. Friday.
Jackson High finished sixth in the St. Charles West Invitational late Saturday. Individually, the Indians' Brock Howard (112 lbs.), Seth Harrell (215) and Luke Wade (heavyweight) each finished second.
