Redskins Coach Stripped of Play Calling Duties
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) -- The Washington Redskins are taking away head coach Jim Zorn's play-calling duties.

Zorn discussed the change with executive vice president of football operations Vinny Cerrato after Washington's 14-6 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

The team plans to announce a new play caller Monday.

According to Redskins spokesman Zack Bolno, Cerrato told Zorn he believes the coach had too many responsibilities and someone else should call the offensive plays. Zorn did not disagree with that assessment, Bolno said.

The Redskins (2-4) have not scored more than 17 points in any game this season. On Sunday, Washington earned only seven first downs and failed to score a touchdown.
