(WJLA) - Details about the drama at Redskins Park continued to unfold Sunday, with revelations from the NFL Network that quarterback Robert Griffin III reportedly believes he'll be playing for a different coach next season.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported before Sunday's 27-26 loss to the Atlanta Falcons that Washington offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan - the son of head coach Mike Shanahan - will likely leave the franchise after this season. Rapoport reports that Kyle doesn't want to work with his father anymore.

Earlier this week, Kyle went on record to say that he had no involvement with the decision to bench Griffin for the rest of the season. Backup QB Kirk Cousins started Sunday and presumably will do so in the team's final two games.

Meanwhile, the NFL Network says that Griffin has confided in some teammates that he believes the team will have a different head coach next season.

Shanahan, who is in his 5th season with the franchise, deflected numerous questions about his future this past Monday, and ESPN reports that Shanahan wants to stay with the team in 2014 and beyond.

Each of these reports come more than a week after ESPN reported that Shanahan cleaned out his office and was ready to leave the team last season over Griffin's relationship with team owner Daniel Snyder.

The team and Shanahan vehemently denied those rumors.
