Really interesting move. He's been out of the league for a while but he's a proven offensive coordinator. I mean I'm not jumping to any conclusion here...but he was Holmgren's OC in Green Bay.

MS isnt ready to get off the couch for less than HC and maybe more.

This can't hurt, Zorn is in WAY over his head, and needs all the help he can get. And if I'm a betting man Zorn has 12 games left in DC...best case.

Wow. I remember Lewis back in the 90's as one of the top black assistant coaches in the NFL and he never got a head job. He worked under Holmgrem if I'm correct. I don't know who was behind this but who ever it is I want to say THANK YOU!!!!!!!!

This is so weird cause I was watching NFL Network yesterday or the day before and Lewis was coaching under Mariucci. Anyway he was coaching up Charles Rogers and Lewis was on the video. And I was just thinking, "what ever happened to that guy?"

The Washington Redskins announced today that they have hired longtime NFL assistant coach Sherman Lewis as an offensive consultant. Lewis, a [B]22-year NFL coaching veteran, brings a history of success and a vast knowledge of the West Coast Offense, in addition to four Super Bowl rings[/B].

“Sherm Lewis is an outstanding coach who has been an instrumental member of four Super Bowl championship teams,” Redskins Executive Vice President of Football Operations Vinny Cerrato said. “Sherm’s history started with the innovator of the West Coast Offense, Bill Walsh, and over the past two decades he has directed some of the best offenses, and coached and developed some of the league’s premier players. [B]He has a diverse NFL background, having coached running backs, wide receivers, and serving as a coordinator[/B]. Jim and Sherman share a common bond in that they both worked for Mike Holmgren at different times in their careers. Sherman’s overall experience and expertise will be a tremendous addition to our coaching staff. His track record humbles us all.”

He might end up being Zorn's replacement..lol. Oops did I say that. this make sme think we might bring Holmgren in also. Because FO doesn't want to blow up the team. They dont believe in rebuilding. They know us as fans heads will explode. lol

yeah, Sherman Lewis is one of the reasons we have the Rooney Rule.

He's no spring chicken so he's probably not a long term answer.

Supposedly, and I don't have confirmation right now, this was Vinny's call. So ,again not to speculate, but it's hard not to think this isn't Holmgren scouting the roster via his buddy Sherman Lewis so the off-season changes (or non-changes) move smoothly.

Yeah in the long run it may make a difference. Reminds me of, ummm, Bill Arnsparger.

Yup, if I remember right Joe Bugel also was brought in as a consultant in 2003

skinsfan69 10-06-2009 06:43 PM

Re: Redskins hire offensive consultant
 
well he may have been out of football a while be his resume is better than the head coaches and the oc so I'm glad he's here. if holmgren was behind it then so be it.
