Redskins | Fassel shocked by Zorn hiring

Clark Judge, of, reports Jim Fassel was shocked over the Washington Redskins decision to hire Jim Zorn as the team's head coach over him. Fassel believes his dismissal from the Baltimore Ravens in 2006 convinced Redskins owner Daniel Snyder not to hire him. "This is a shock to me," Fassel said. "At the end of the day, Dan wanted to make a big splash, and I think he was worried about the Baltimore thing. He worried about the public relations (fallout), and he didn't know which way to go." Fassel added he believes there were "forces" working behind the scenes, particularly vice president of football operations Vinny Cerrato, that began to promote Zorn at his expense.
