(Updated Title) Sherman Smith Joins Redskins as OC
 
[url=http://blog.washingtonpost.com/redskinsinsider/2008/02/sherman_smith_still_deciding.html]Sherman Smith ... Still Deciding - Redskins Insider[/url]

[QUOTE]Sherman Smith ... Still Deciding
More from Jason Reid:

Just got off the phone with Sherman Smith, who still is trying to decide whether to accept the Redskins' offer to become their offensive coordinator. Smith, the Tennessee Titans' assistant head coach-offense, told me he's [B]heard a lot of good things about the organization[/B] and hopes to make a decision today.

Smith and new coach Jim Zorn are former teammates and close friends. Smith said [B]many of his friends in coaching believe joining the Redskins would be the best move for him at this point of his career[/B], but Smith is happy in Nashville and the Titans have been good to him.

I've heard that Smith is a really good guy and he came across as a straight shooter in our initial conversation. Smith was trying to get in touch with Zorn to ask a few more questions before speaking with Titans Coach Jeff Fisher. Smith sure sounded like someone who was about to change jobs.[/QUOTE]

Don't know if he is going to sign here. But I just thought in light of all the "Spagnuolo was told not be part of this mess" rhetoric it would be worth mentioning some positive opinions about being a coach here.

Sounds like it. But we've been down that road before haven't we? I'd be surprised if he didn't though.

You know this same crap happened with Fassel. They said he was a done deal and got our hopes all up in the air and then slammed us. lol. ; > I sure hope this works out. The way everyone is making is sound Zorn is bringing in young offensive minds to help him with brain storming plays and game planning.

What's interesting is that both Insider and the report in the main Sports section (both by Jason Reid and Jason LaCanfora) have the same information in the body of their respective stories about Sherman Smith.

But Insider leads with saying Smith is expected to make a decision tomorrow, and the article in the Sports section says he's expected to join the Redskins tomorrow.

For NFL historians out there, Jim Zorn and Sherman Smith were both on the original Seattle Seahawks team in 1976. I pulled out an ancient NFL reference book today, and there they were.

Sally had better hurry up and write an article telling him to run for the hills before it's too late.

Oh god, do the Titans run a west coast offence? Is Zorn's buddy going to be learning on the job too?

[QUOTE]In addition to having strong ties to Zorn, Smith and Mitchell are well versed in the offense Zorn plans to use. [/QUOTE]

Smith sounds like a good man, based on the tiny amount i've read.

In addition to being Zorn's guy, another thing IMO that weighs in his favor is that he's black. Players don't like the coaching turnover if they're comfortable w/the coaches they have & we all know that players spoke about keeping the staff intact.

Players that are upset at some of the decisions might at least see that the Skins are at least promoting a qualified minority, and they replaced Byner likewise. I'm sure a lot of players want to see the Rooney Rule be more than lip service & formality.
