ESPN - Snyder, Skins appear committed to new approach - NFL
For a quarterback or a coach. Just ask Steve Spurrier, Marty Schottenheimer, Norv Turner and, to a lesser extent, Joe Gibbs. Since buying the Redskins in 1999, owner Daniel Snyder has had a hand in everything. He's been the George Steinbrenner of the NFL, trying to buy championships and burning through coaches.
But Snyder's hiring of the untested Zorn is a sign things are about to change. The Redskins are going to stand pat.
"It will be a shock to some, but I don't see us being a big player in free agency,'' said Vinny Cerrato, Washington's executive vice president of football operations. "I don't think Dan's plane's going to be fired up, ready to go. I just think it's going to be a quiet start of free agency for us.''
New Redskins coach Jim Zorn appears to have already earned the trust of owner Daniel Snyder.
Quiet, although uncommon for Snyder and the Redskins, will be good. Gibbs, the one coach who had enough power to stand up to Snyder, retired after last season. But he left the Redskins as a playoff team with a roster to match.
