Jim Zorn hired as Washington Redskins coach

WASHINGTON -- The Washington Redskins hired Jim Zorn as their coach Saturday night, a surprise ending to a month-long search for a replacement for Joe Gibbs.

Zorn's hiring was confirmed to ESPN.com's John Clayton on Saturday night by sources familiar with the situation.

Zorn will be introduced at a news conference at 3 p.m. Sunday, according to a person who was informed of the Redskins' decision. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because a formal announcement had not been made.

Zorn, a former Seattle quarterback, has been the Seahawks' quarterbacks coach for the last seven years. The Redskins hired him to be their offensive coordinator on Jan. 26 while continuing their search for a head coach.

Who's been making the hirings & firings for this organization for the past 8 years? A manatee?

If you've seen the two South Park episodes about Family Guy then you will understand what I mean.

I'm not sold on the move but I dont think that Zorn is going to be a terrible coach.

I'm referring more to the way this entire offseason has been handled.

Dan Snyder makes Jerry Jones look like Bob McNair (aka a bad owner makes another bad owner look like a good owner)
