News broke (and was documented here thanks to TexSkins) this weekend that Sherman Smith is the new offensive coordinator of the Redskins. That's fantastic. Because per the coaching staff list at the official site, we don't have a quarterbacks coach at all and, as far as I can tell, we have no intention of getting one. (Don Breaux's title? ---. I am not making this up people, 17 years and three Super Bowls later this man's official title with the team is ---. I guess it prevents other teams from laterally hiring him to "guy on the couch," without compensation, that is. We'll take an ice cream cone.)
So poor Jim Zorn is going to have to try his first head coaching gig while also tutoring (tute on!) Jason Campbell as his immediate positional coach. The least he can do is bring in an offensive coordinator to help
call plays alleviate unspecified offensive coordinator duties. Per the Official Site, emphasis added:
"While I will call the plays during the games, our entire offensive staff will be putting together our game plan each week and Sherman will lead those efforts both in our offensive staff meetings and in our player meetings," Zorn said.
"The closest the Redskins ever came to this was when owner George Preston Marshall tapped Joe Kuharich, who had been hired as the Redskins' offensive line coach in January 1954, to replace Curly Lambeau as head coach after two exhibition games that season," Richman said.
