Days after the NFL Coaches Association announced that it was siding with the players in the ongoing labor disputes, the Redskins coaching staff stated that it is backing the owners.

All 17 of Washington's assistant coaches signed a statement confirming their allegiance to the owners.

"We stand united with our ownership, and the brief does not reflect our thoughts on the matter," the statement said. "We, like everyone else, are hopeful that we can return to playing football. We look forward to a new (collective bargaining agreement), and welcoming back our players as soon as possible."

Mike Shanahan, who is also the team's executive vice president and considered part of management, did not sign.
