ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- "The Mastermind."

At the beginning in Denver, the words were uttered with reverence. As time passed, they often came out with a bit of a smirk.

Mike Shanahan is the only coach to bring a Super Bowl title to the Mile High City, but as the gleam of the two Lombardi Trophies he won faded and playoff trips became more rare, Shanahan went from "Coach for Life" for the Broncos, to just another to be handed a pink slip.

Nearly five years after his unceremonious departure from a place he helped build, Shanny returns to Denver on Sunday as coach of the Washington Redskins.

Shanahan says: "It's been home for me. A lot of great friends still there and just something you look forward to."
