The man who carries the title of “Winningest Coach,” Don Shula, will be honored for his leadership and philanthropy by Tampa’s Moffitt Cancer Center.

Moffitt currently has 15 affiliates in Florida, one in Georgia and two in Puerto Rico.

Robert Rothman, a co-owner of the Redskins as well as the Chairman of the Board for the Moffitt Cancer Center, and his wife Peggy are on the host committee for the event that will recognize the “extraordinary professional and civic accomplishments of a community leader.”

Coach Shula is the first to receive the award. Joining the Rothmans on the host committee are Redskins Executive Vice President & General Manager Bruce Allen and his wife Kiersten. In addition, Redskins owners Daniel M. Snyder and Dwight Schar also are sponsors of this gala event.

The Washington Redskins picked up Keenan McCardell as the team’s wide receivers coach.

“Keenan is an outstanding addition to our coaching staff. He has all the attributes that you look for in one to become an outstanding coach in the National Football League,” Redskins Executive Vice President/Head Coach Mike Shanahan said.

“Keenan has instant credibility with our players as someone who played in this league for 17 years, won two Super Bowls and played in multiple Pro Bowls. He will be able to pass along much of the knowledge and expertise he picked up throughout a great career.”

McCardell was drafted by the Redskins in the 12th round of the 1991 NFL Draft out of UNLV. McCardell came full circle by also playing his final season for Washington in 2007.
