Newcomer Lewis Assumes Zorn's Play Calling Duty

October 19, 2009

From calling Bingo to calling plays, Sherman Lewis is taking Jim Zorn's favorite duty.

The Washington Redskins said Monday that Lewis will take over the play calling for an offense that is averaging only 13.2 points per game.

The front office stripped Zorn of the play-calling role following Sunday's 14-6 loss to previously winless Kansas City. The Redskins are 2-4, and they have failed to score a touchdown in two of their home games.

Two weeks ago, Lewis was enjoying retirement in Michigan, calling Bingo games at a senior center and delivering Meals on Wheels. He previously spent 22 years as an NFL assistant and was originally hired as a consultant for the Redskins' offense.

The move is a blow for Zorn, who feels he had a knack for calling plays.
