Redskins | Fassel shocked by Zorn hiring

Tue, 12 Feb 2008 08:59:34 -0800

Clark Judge, of CBSSports.com, 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.

Camille Powell, of the Washington Post, reports Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Fassel says QB Kyle Boller must improve his completion percentage this season.

"I have a lot more confidence in [Boller]," Fassel said. "Like I told him, he's got to show me confidence and I'll call those plays down there and he'll make the right decision. His first year, that was really shaky. Last year, the second half, he really came on. I think he's going to make that progression."

"I think you'll see a definitive personality for the offense," Billick said. "Obviously, with Jim's experiences and where he's coming from as a head coach, one of the priorities was to create a very specific personality and to have a swagger about itself. When Jim stands there in front of that offensive group, there is a presence."

Ravens | Fassel Wants Collins, But It's Out of His Hands

Mon, 03 May 2004 21:02:58 -0700

According to ESPN.com, Baltimore Ravens senior consultant Jim Fassel would love for the Ravens to bring in free agent QB Kerry Collins, but concedes the situation is unlikely since the team is trying to develop second-year QB Kyle Boller. "The problem that I have in Baltimore is that I'm only a consultant. They have a commitment to Kyle Boller," Fassel told ESPN Radio Sunday, May 2. "Is there an opportunity for him in Baltimore there? No, because a lot of teams make their commitment. And you can't commit to two at that position. Being released at this late time, every team thinks they've got their guy, and it's hard to incorporate another guy. But Kerry Collins will resurface with another team, and he will take another team to the Super Bowl," he said. Fassel served as head coach for the New York Giants when Collins led the team to its last Super Bowl appearance in 2001.
