Skins Add 2 Assistants

Washington Redskins head coach Jim Zorn is slowly getting his coaching staff into place as on Monday he added John Palermo as defensive line coach and Chris Meidt as an offensive assistant.  Palermo spent last season as the defensive coordinator and linebackers coach at Tennessee Tech; he previously coached at the University of Miami  and spent 14 years as an assistant at Wisconsin.

His other stops have included Minnesota, Appalachian State, Memphis State and Austin Peay, where he was head coach in 1990.  Palermo fills the vacancy that was created when Greg Blache was promoted to defensive coordinator after Gregg Williams was fired last mnth during the Redskins’ head coaching search.  Meidt has been the head coach of Division III St. Olaf for 6 seasons; he replaces Bob Saunders, who left the team after his father, Al Saunders, was dismissed along with Williams.
