Presumably, today was the last game Jim Zorn will coach with the Washington Redskins, or at least for the near future.
Zorn, over two seasons as Redskins coach, has gone 12-20, including an abysmal 4-12 season in 2009. This brings up the question, is Jim Zorn the worst coach of the decade?
Well, let's look at some of the other bad coaches of the decade.
- Dave Campo went 5-11 in each of his three seasons in Dallas, from 2000-2002.
- Rod Marinelli was 10-38 in three seasons with the Detroit Lions from 2006-2008.
- Lane Kiffin was just 5-15 in a year and a quarter for the miserable Raiders in 2007 and 2008.
- Gregg Williams lasted just three years in Buffalo, where he went just 17-31.
- Dave McGinnis was just 17-40 from 2000-2003 for the Arizona Cardinals.
- Scott Linehan was 11-25 in parts of three seasons as St. Louis Rams head coach, from 2006 to 2008.
- Mike Nolan was 18-37 from 2005 to 2008 as head of the San Francisco 49ers.
- Steve Spurrier, like Zorn, was 12-20 in two seasons, and also like Zorn, coached the Washington Redskins, from 2002-2003.
- Marty Mornhinweg went just 5-27 in his two seasons as coach of the Lions, from 2001 to 2002.
That's just a little overview of the bad coaches. Zorn's record certainly isn't the worst, but bringing in Albert Haynesworth usually doesn't make you worse, so bad that you go 4-12.
So its a crazy question, I want to know what you think. Comment and tell me.
