holmester Posted October 9, 2009 Share Posted October 9, 2009 Courtesy of Bubba Another Shanny clue for the Skins? Earlier in the week, the Washington Redskins brought in Sherman Lewis to act as "offensive consultant" to address the team's struggles. When asked how much he'd talked to Lewis before the hiring, coach Jim Zorn told the Washington Post, "Zero." Sounds like Zorn may be on the hotseat; after all, the bosses are bringing in an old guy to watch over the team. But the coaches shouldn't be threatened by Lewis, at least not in terms of him taking their job. "I wasn't planning on coaching, so I'm not looking for anybody's job," Lewis said. There's more evidence emerging that Mike Shanahan will be the successor to Zorn if not during this season then certainly shortly after the season is over. Word from Insider Len Pasquarelli is that Shanahan and Redskins vice president for football operations Vinny Cerrato have a good relationship based upon their time together with the San Francisco 49ers in the early 1990's. While some coaches could be scared off by Cerrato having so much power, Pasquarelli believes that the two might be able to work well together. Thanks for nothin ESPN.
