Zorn Accepts Redskins’ OC Position

                                Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Jim Zorn 

The Washington Redskins finally have an offensive coordinator; Mike Sando of ESPN is reporting that former Seattle Seahawks quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn has accepted an offer to become the Redskins’ OC; ironically, Zorn’s hiring comes while the Redskins are still in a search for a head coach.

Zorn reportedly met with team owner Daniel Snyder this week; he returned to Seattle, spoke with the Seahawks about a new deal, then decided that the Redskins’ offer was the better of the two.  Zorn’s new deal with Washington is expected to be for 3 years in length.  Zorn comes to the Redskins with extensive experience in the coaching ranks; he was an offensive coordinator with Utah State from 1992 to 1994.  He also coached quarterbacks at Boise State from 1988-91 and QB’s at the University of Minnesota from 1995 to 1996; his first NFL coaching job was as an offensive assistant with the Seahawks  in 1997.
