    I had the NFL Network on today while I was doing some things around the office (I’d call it work, but I try not to lie to the audience here). Early in the afternoon, Steve Mariucci was on the set with Bret Favre, Deion Sanders, and Rich Eisen. In a segment that was repeated several…

    Three names have been the buzz in the Redskins coaching search over the past couple of days. Earlier, I looked at Steve Mariucci. Now the focus turns to New York defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. When the Redskins announced that the selection of a new head coach would not take place until after the Super Bowl,…

    Another day, another round of stories, rumors and dots to try to connect in the process of the Redskins’ selection of a head coach. Three names have been the buzz the last few days. Here’s one of them, the other two will be covered later today. Steve Mariucci’s name came up on Sunday night when…

  7. OC—The Zorn Identity

    Jim Zorn has accepted an offer to become the offensive coordinator of the Redskins. Earlier this week, it was reported that Zorn interviewed for the position but returned to Seattle after that and it seemed likely that he would stay in his current position as the quarterbacks coach of the Seahawks. There, he could have…

  9. Sausage making

    If the Discovery Channel series How It’s Made ever did an episode about sausage, I’d quickly turn the channel. There’s an old saying about sausage making—you never want to see it if you ever want to enjoy eating sausage again. A massive operation that’s very similar to making sausage has been going on in and…

  11. Schwartz back in the picture?

    A friend of a relative has an old college buddy who knows a guy who knows Tennessee defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz and he says that Schwartz is coming into town this weekend for another round of interviews. Actually, the source of this information isn’t quite that convoluted, but it’s just as much hearsay. I’m only…

  13. Assistant coaches need action

    Now that Jim Fassel has been put on the back burner, perhaps permanently, there is a sense that the Redskins are going to deliberate further on their choice for Joe Gibbs’ replacement. It seems likely that a decision will not be made this week. There is talk—unconfirmed by the Redskins, of course—that Dan Snyder may…

  15. No, it’s not–maybe

    It looks like I may have spoken too soon. The train that seemed to be racing towards the hiring of Jim Fassel to be the next head coach of the Redskins appears to be running out of steam. In fact, it may have become derailed altogether. Usually, a story like this unfolds in predictable stages…

    On SportsRise this morning, the anchor said that Kelli Johnson is reporting that Jim Zorn will get “an offer he can’t refuse” to return to the Seahawks as QB coach and offensive coordinator in waiting, getting the job after Holmgren retires at the end of this coming season. He will not be coming to Washington,…

    According to multiple reports, former Giants coach Jim Fassel has emerged as “a leading candidate” for the Redskins’ head coaching job. In fact, as I type this, Adam Schefter of the NFL Network is saying that the Redskins are “zeroing in” on Fassel as “the leading candidate” for the job. This development has the message…
