Jim Zorn announced as the next head coach of the Washington Redskins

After more than 30 days of looking for a new head coach Dan Snyder has finally decided on promoting Jim Zorn, former Seattle Seahawks quarterbacks coach, as the new head coach of the Washington Redskins. (He recently signed on as the offensive coordinator. )

I wish him the best of luck coaching the Redskins
