Cerrato: Zorn Head Coach For Rest Of Season

The fate of Redskins head coach Jim Zorn has been the source of much debate the last few weeks, but it appears that Zorn will remain the head coach for the remainder of the season after he received a vote of confidence from Redskins executive vice president of football operations Vinny Cerrato.

"Let me start by making a few things very perfectly clear," Cerrato said on his weekly radio show according to "Jim Zorn is the head coach of the Washington Redskins and will for the rest of this season, and hopefully into the future."

Cerrato also addressed the rumors of turmoil within the front office.

"The relationships internally within the organization quite frankly remain the same," Cerrato said.

Carrato also said that everyone in the organization (including the owner) is disappointed for the fans about how the team has performed.

The Redskins' players called for an official endorsement of Zorn this week, and they've received it, although Zorn has been stripped of his playcalling duties. Sherm Lewis will take over the offensive play-calling for this Monday night's nationally televised game against the Eagles.
