There's been a belief for some time that former Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren would be at the top of the list for Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder if there came a time that he decided to fire his current coach, Jim Zorn. After all, Holmgren has said that he's interesting in coaching on the East Coast after stints in the West and Midwest.
Well, it appears that all may be thrown out the window, according to the Washington Post. Holmgren is apparently upset with the treatment Snyder is giving Zorn, who previously was an assistant for Holmgren in Seattle.
He reportedly told a Chicago radio station that "it was very unfair" to strip Zorn of his play-calling abilities.
"The position they put Jim in, it shouldn't happen," he said. "You can be upset with me as a play-caller or how the team's going, [then] fire me. But don't do that. Don't pull the rug out from under me, tie my hands, make me look foolish ... take away what I came there for to do in the first place. Don't do that."
Go ahead and scratch his name off your list, Mr. Snyder.
