I truly feel sorry for the guy. He was initially brought in to be the OC, but was made HC. I understand he likely wanted the job, but gee whiz. The Redskins are a joke!

Good luck to Zorn. He seems like a great guy and I hope he can earn another shot at actually being a OC.

Shanahan flown in for visit with Skins.

The Redskins fired coach Jim Zorn early Monday, the first step in yet another team overhaul that appears likely to involve Mike Shanahan, who flew to Washington on owner Dan Snyder's plane in mid-afternoon.

An unidentified official within the NFL informed The Associated Press that new Redskins general manager Bruce Allen talked to Shanahan by phone Monday, and league sources told NFL Network's Jason La Canfora to expect an organizational overhaul by Thursday but maybe sooner.

Yea I feel sorry for him as well.

He wasn't treated with any respect at all.

Although I have to admit when they hired him I was shocked!

It appears to be moving pretty fast. Shanny Jr might be gone by the end of the week if not sooner.

The Washington Post reports that the Redskins will name Mike Shanahan their next head coach on Tuesday, "barring unforeseen glitches."

Shanahan arrived at club headquarters at 3ET Monday. The rest of the Skins' coaching staff will reportedly undergo a "sweeping change," with Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer the apparent favorite to take over the same position in D.C. Shanahan's son, Kyle, will coordinate the offense. NFL Network's Mike Lombardi also reported Monday that Mike Shanahan will be named team president, giving him significant influence over all personnel.

The personel changes need to start happening beginning a little higher than Zorn really. Snyder really is doing a really good job of screwing up that franchise once and for all. Zorn is better off out of that place....there ain't much to coach with there, and the fiasco of the play calling crap going on mid season didn't help.

The Skins are just an ultra messy organization at the moment.

Amazing how it might work out. We were considered Denver South when Kubiak came to Houston and began bringing in former Broncos. Maybe the Skins will be called the Texans North by taking our cast-offs.

Oh, how the World goes round and round......

Giants fire their DC Bill Sheridan.

Maybe we should sticky a thread for coaching moves and other off-season movement?

I have to agree with you here..Zorn will be in the league somewhere as an assistant. Perhaps Cleveland...doesn't he have a history with Coach Holmgren?

The Redskins have a proud history. Snyder is just eroding all that. I wonder how the fans feel there about him?

will be odd for Kubiak to coach against the Shanahan boys next season if this does come to pass.
