Jim Zorn Is The Next Head Coach
"Just got off the phone with sources with knowledge of the situation. Zrn is the next head coach. He spent a lot of time with Vinny Cerrato and Dan Snyder the past two days, team sources said, and the brass "fell in love with him." A press conference should come Monday."

And NFL Network is running it across the bottom of the screen confirmed by the Associated Press.

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Multiple Sources Confirm Jim Zorn Named Head Coach

My bad! JLC updated this quickly, went from possibility to "next head coach."

Man, I'm kinda excited. The only thing I don't like about this is Zorn's seattle ties. Big difference between Seattle & DC. I hope he isn't looking to take over the hawks when Mora Jr. flails in a couple years. I would love, as I believe most of us would, for our head coach to make a name here over the next 5-10 years. Zorn is the right age for that to happen if he can have some early success.

I just saw it go over the NFL Netowrk ticker. If this is true I'm not sure what to think.

Well, if this is true, this is the most F'd up coaching search I've ever seen. A nobody QB coach becomes the HC of our proud franchise! If it is indeed true, I guess we have to line up behind him. Maybe crazy wins.

Well, like I said, Hasselbeck has raved about him and hes been under Holmgren, a great one, for 7 years....

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Multiple Sources Confirm Jim Zorn Named Head Coach

Well I have to say another surprise HC. I would have never seen this one coming. I'm just glad this whole HC search is over. Interested to see who turns out being the Zorn replacement at the OC job..?

Of course, he's never called a play as a pro coach offensively or defensively (he was the utah state OC so that's impressive), but Matt likes him, so, you know, it should work out.

Mike, I'll give you props on the idea! That would be crazy if it ended up that way.

I hope we're stickin w/him long term & vice-versa. I'm waiting for all the Zorn paraphenalia to come out!

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Multiple Sources Confirm Jim Zorn Named Head Coach

what does anyone think about Russ Grimm as the offensive coordinator, in the Bramm discussion/article he talks about some issues with the Cardinals over contractual obligations. Seems to me since this would be a lateral move, that the redskins and cardinals would have to work this out in order to get Grimm to run the offense.

Or is this Danny looking to the future & thinking long-term rather than going for the splash?

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Multiple Sources Confirm Jim Zorn Named Head Coach

Some quotes about Jim Zorn... our new HC...

"He's very hands-on with his quarterbacks," said Redskins cornerback Shawn Springs, who played in Seattle while Zorn was on the coaching staff. "He's a real bright guy. Very sharp. And [Seahawks Pro Bowl quarterback] Matt [Hasselbeck] would tell you he's done a lot for his career. I think he'll be real good for Jason [Campbell]."

"It was leaked out that he might be leaving for a while, but I didn't think he would go," Hasselbeck said. "I've been with him for a long time, and he means a lot to me not just as a coach but as a mentor. I think it's hard for him because he has so many great memories in Seattle, but this is a great opportunity and a great challenge in Washington."
Hasselbeck said quarterback Jason Campbell is getting a solid technician in Zorn.
"Jason can expect to be coached in all aspects of his life, not just Xs and Os, not just the technique of throwing a pigskin," he said. "Jim's going to care about Jason Campbell the person just as much as he's going to care about Jason Campbell the player."
Zorn started 100 games as Seattle's quarterback, experience that makes him equal parts realist and perfectionist.
"He's a realist on things, good and bad," Hasselbeck said. "The tough thing I found with Jim is that you may think you're playing at a level you think is really good and you're doing everything you're supposed to be doing and everything all the coaches have asked you to do.
"Jim will say, 'Now we have to take it to the next level.' And that's hard when you're thinking, 'I had a good game. I was NFC offensive player of the week.' But he'll say, 'You didn't do this, this and this.' But in the big picture, he has a good perspective on things."
