Jim Zorn Takes OC Job with Redskins

Jim Zorn, Seahawks alumni and QB coach since 2001, has accepted an offer to become the Washington Redskins offensive coordinator.

According to ESPN, Seahawks quarterbacks coach and former Seahawk Jim Zorn has accepted a job with the Washington Redskins as their offensive coordinator. Zorn, 54, has coached quarterbacks for the team since the 2001 season.

Zorn met with Redskins owner Dan Snyder this past week. After returning to Seattle and speaking with the front office about negotiating a new contract, he felt the offer with Washington was the better route.

Jim Zorn has been credited with much of Matt Hasselbeck's growth into a 4-time pro-bowl quarterback. Hasselbeck has mentioned how Zorn was often a calming influence through his earlier years when a rough period often included chants of "Dilfer! Dilfer!" from impatient fans in the stands.
