Washington Redskins fire Coach Jim Zorn

This news is no surprise in light of the team’s 4-12 record for 2009.

General manager Bruce Allen says Zorn was informed of the decision shortly after the team returned to Redskins Park early Monday, following a season-ending 23-20 loss to San Diego.

Allen said in a statement released by the team that “the status quo is not acceptable.”

Allen, who has been the GM for three weeks, said he “felt it was necessary to not waste a moment of time building this team into a winner.”

Zorn was 12-20 over two seasons as coach. The Redskins finished 4-12 this season.

So who will the moronic team owner hire next? The Zorn selection came out of the blue, and before that the retired Joe Gibbs and Florida Gator Coach Steve Spurrier were deemed odd selections for an NFL team in the 00′s. If there is a NFL owner crazier and more unpredictable than Al Davis of the Oakland Raiders, it is Washington’s Daniel Snyder.
