Jim Zorn will make his Washington Redskins coaching debut in the Hall of Fame game Aug. 3.

The Hall of Fame announced yesterday that the Redskins and Indianapolis Colts will meet in the annual exhibition at Canton, Ohio. It’s played the day following the hall’s induction ceremony.

The Redskins lobbied for the game after two of their all-time greats — Darrell Green and Art Monk — were voted into the Hall earlier this month. The rest of the Class of 2008 is made up of Fred Dean, Emmitt Thomas, Andre Tippett and Gary Zimmerman.

The Colts last played in the Hall of Fame game in 1996. The Redskins, who hired Zorn to replace Joe Gibbs, played in the 2004 game.
