Analysis: Zorn to leave Hawks

Although, there is still not formal confirmation, it appears Jim Zorn is leaving to become the Redskins offensive coordinator.

I hate this move. If it's true that he is leaving because the Seahawks front office refused to give him assurances past this season, I really hate this move.

Zorn represented a great chance to retain some continuity after Holmgren leaves next year with our #1 asset, Hasselbeck. Matt has said time and again that he thinks very highly of Zorn. He trusts him. He respects him, and he listens to him.

I would argue that Zorn was the most valuable assistant on staff to retain past this year. I wouldn't lose much sleep if Marshall or Haskell moved on (as they likely will).

Losing Zorn was a needless risk. I certainly hope Ruskell is not going to replace coaches based on whether they were "his" guys or not. Look at what's best for the team and get over your ego.

CNN reporting that Zorn is now the Head Coach of the Washington Redskins.

Congratulations to Jim Zorn....that's one hell of a move up the NFL food chain.
