Skins Find Replacement For Gibbs. Former Seahwaks QB Gets Job.

The Associated Press has learned the
Washington Redskins have hired Jim Zorn as their head coach.
It's a surprising ending to their monthlong search to find a
replacement for Joe Gibbs.
According to a person who was informed of the Redskins decision,
Zorn will be introduced at a news conference tomorrow afternoon.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because a formal
announcement has not been made.
Zorn is a former Seattle quarterback who coached the Seahawks'
quarterbacks the past seven years.
The Redskins hired him to be their offensive coordinator on
January 26th, while continuing their search for a head coach.
Others candidates for the job included New York Giants defensive
coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, Jim Fassel, Steve Mariucci, Jim Mora and Ron
Meeks.
Zorn becomes the sixth coach under owner Daniel Snyder, who
bought the team in 1999.
