Vinny Cerrato just said as much on his radio show:
“Jim Zorn is the head coach for the rest of the season and hopefully into the future.”
Two quick things to note about this one little sentence:
1) As I said over at my other home, even Cerrato isn’t inept enough to publicly waiver on his support of Zorn. Of course he’s gonna say Zorn is the team’s head coach. This team has enough bullshit going on — most of it created by Cerrato himself — without adding the headline “V.P. Uncertain About Head Coach’s Status” to the mix. Let’s revisit Cerrato’s commitment to Zorn after the Skins lose three or four in a row.
2) The second part of that quote is more about Cerrato’s own future than it is about Zorn’s. Cerrato hired Zorn. Sure, he had input, as always, from Snyder. But the growing sentiment seems to be that if Zorn goes, so too does Cerrato. The two are connected. And if that’s the case, it would be the single smartest thing Dan Snyder has done since taking over the team.
