ASHBURN, Va. — Always the energetic lefthander, Jim Zorn had an upbeat but nervous start to his coming-out event with the Washington Redskins.
The new coach got the team colors wrong - he called them maroon and black. He paid tribute to assistant Gregg Williams, who was recently fired. He lacked the polish of his predecessor, Joe Gibbs, who watched yesterday's news conference at Redskins Park auditorium.
Zorn himself said it was nothing short of "miraculous" that he was standing where he was: a few feet behind the team's three Super Bowl trophies, essentially making the jump from quarterbacks coach.
