|Redskins Waste Little Time in Firing Zorn
|ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -- The Washington Redskins say they've fired coach Jim Zorn.
General manager Bruce Allen says Zorn was informed of the decision shortly after the team returned to Redskins Park early Monday, following a season-ending 23-20 loss to San Diego.
Allen said in a statement released by the team that ``the status quo is not acceptable.''
Allen, who has been the GM for three weeks, said he ``felt it was necessary to not waste a moment of time building this team into a winner.''
Zorn was 12-20 over two seasons as coach. The Redskins finished 4-12 this season.
