From reading the headlines over the past couple weeks, one would think that Jim Zorn is as good as gone. It’s just a matter of when.
But some players don’t want to play the waiting game. They want a decision now.
Inside the locker room, two prominent players on offense and a veteran defensive player said they want team management to publicly address Coach Jim Zorn’s job security.
If the team doesn’t intend to fire Zorn, the players said, the coach should be given a public vote of confidence so that players won’t have to bear the responsibility each week of responding to speculation about their embattled coach.
“I wish someone upstairs would just say he’s going to be our coach for the season,” said one of the players. “That way, we don’t have to answer any more questions about it and everybody knows we’re in this boat together.”
Have a feeling that this won’t end well.
