ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - Seahawks running backs coach Stump Mitchell is following Jim Zorn to Washington, D.C.
He'll also be running backs at Washington with the title of assistant head coach. Mitchell is a former player who had been a coach in Seattle since 1999.
Going into his final season, Seahawks head coach Mike Holmgren has now lost Mitchell, quarterbacks coach Zorn, offensive line coach Bill Laveroni, offensive quality control coach Gary Reynolds and special assistant Ray Rhodes. Mike Solari is replacing Laveroni, the only one fired.
Meanwhile, Zorn is waiting to hear whether Tennessee Titans assistant head coach Sherman Smith will accept the job as offensive coordinator for Washington.
Zorn and Smith played together for the Seahawks.
As head coach, Zorn said he will call the plays if Smith takes the job.
