Zorn Trying to Loot the Coaching Staff ???

This article here, by Jason La Canfora of the Washington Post, suggests that Captain Zorn would like to bring Seattle RB coach Stump Mitchell aboard the Titanic over in DC(Dave Krieg Strike Beard reference). This is to be expected, i guess. This article suggests that they may try to broker a trade, handing the Hawks Erynst Byner in return.

I think that Jimmy Boy is in a tough spot. He probably wants to bring a bunch of coaches aboard, however, many of them probably feel an obligation to help Big Show ride off into the sunset (lets hope he doesn't break the horses back). Next year might be a different story, with big chunks of the current staff possibly looking for work, however, by then Zorn might be asking the Hawks for his job back!

UPDATE(1:45pm) Here is more on Stump Mitchell becoming the new OC for the Washington Redskins. Anybody else think this is like an episode of the Twilight Zone. Zorn and Mitchell as top coaches on the staff of a storied franchise--never saw that coming.
