about four years ago, i woke up one morning and daniel snyder, the owner of the redskins, blew me away and blew the whole world away by announcing that the legend “joe gibbs”, was coming out of retirement to coach the redskins again…..it was about 6:20 in the morning when i read it, and i SCREAMED OUT LOUD. my wife thought i was out of my head, and maybe she’s right….ha ha
so, now redskins fans have waited about a month for daniel snyder to name a new coach. he hires jim zorn as offensive coordinator, and greg blache as defensive coordinator. on now to the head coach…the names start flying….the interviews start happening…..”JIM FASSELL”, “STEVE SPAGULOLO”, “STEVE MARRIUCCI”, “PETE CARROLL”, “BILL COWHER”, all these names are tantalizing…..then we hear nothing for about a week and all of a sudden……
SNYDER PROMOTES HIS BRAND NEW OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR JIM ZORN TO HEAD COACH? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
i was stunned to say the least when i heard the news on espn while we were in omaha for a sales class. scott solberg, being a diehard seattle seahawks fan was equally as shocked. for those that don’t know, jim zorn was a legendary quarterback for the seahawks, and has been the quarterbacks coach in recent years.
well, i think i have the scoop….remember a year from now that jay dean said this would happen…..
i think that behind closed doors, daniel snyder and jim zorn have a pact made that jim zorn will coach the skins for one year and then go back to being the offensive coordinator. he is guaranteed a five year deal worth fifteen million dollars, that’s three million a year…..he would be amongst the highest paid coordinators in the league……and then…..
DANIEL BRINGS IN BILL COWHER NEXT YEAR AND SIGNS HIM TO A LUCRATIVE LONG TERM CONTRACT…..
meanwhile, jim zorn has probably had a very successful year, and many other teams are looking at him. he can move on and collect big money, or stay with the skins and get paid incredible amounts of moola……..
sound crazy? well, i think it sounds like the redskins crazy rich owner……….
don’t get me wrong, i would LOVE to have jim zorn coach the team for a few years…he’s a heck of a motivator and a player favorite….i think he’ll have instant success as the skins coach…..i just think that ole danny boy snyder has something cooking in that maniacal brain of his……..remember this if i’m right, forget this if i’m wrong….ha ha
