Yeah, I don't see how DS can see that the "process" was complete w/out an interview of Meidt in the first place.

Re: Redskins Add Offensive Assistant

Apparantly, they hired another guy too.

Meidt leaves St. Olaf to take Redskins job

Zorn also hired John Palermo, a former Gophers and Wisconsin assistant who spent last season as defensive coordinator and linebackers coach at Tennessee Tech.

Re: Redskins Add Offensive Assistant

He'll probably be a lower level assistant. Nothing to get worked up over.

You're right, a low level offense assistant needs to be a direct descendant of Vince Lombardi or Dave Campo..

Re: Redskins Add Offensive Assistant

Why are we hiring college coaches? This guy and now some other guy who is going to be the D-line coach with no NFL experience. Just kind of strage. I thought we had already signed a D-line coach.

Holy crap...we're sinking to a D3 coach now? First we decide to hire a HC even though the guy has no head coaching OR OC / DC experience, now we hire a D3 coach?
I am REALLY trying to stay optimistic, but they are really raising my eyebrows. I hope they know what they are doing!

You sound like Tim Kawakami, give these guys a chance.

Don't get me wrong, I will give them chances, but like I said in another thread, you go off odds. Odds are these guys will not be winners, and these signings are not smart. I will reserve my judgement until I see them coaching.
Hey we all want this work out, but if DS intentions were to lower expectations, well, mission accomplished.

Re: Redskins Add Offensive Assistant

So a coach who takes a school that hasn't had much success since '69-'71 to three consecutive 8 win seasons in the last three years, has his team ranked in the top 15 in the country, has an offense that is ranked in the top eight in the country in total offense and scoring in the last three seasons, set school records for points (49.0/game) and total offense (512.8 yards/game), and has recruiting classes with three All-America selections and (31) first team All-conference picks, including a league-best 23 over the last two seasons doesn't deserve a chance as an offense assistant, not a position coach, an offensive assistant.....
