WASHINGTON (AP) -The Washington Redskins fired assistants Gregg Williams and Al Saunders on Saturday, promoted Greg Blache to lead the team's defense and announced that a head coach would likely not be in place for at least another week.
The Redskins also formally announced the hiring of Jim Zorn, who agreed to a three-year deal Friday to lead the offense.
``The process of selecting a new head coach continues, although no hire is planned until after the Super Bowl so as not to distract from the championship game as well as to keep open all our options,'' owner Dan Snyder said in a statement, his first public comments on a coaching search that began more than two weeks ago.
``We are on track with our interviews,'' Snyder added. ``But in the interim we also are filling our coaching positions and re-signing several existing staff members.''
