WASHINGTON (AP) -- 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.
