Former Ajax chief Adriaanse replaced Henk van Stee on Thursday, but his presence was not enough to inspire a win as they slumped to defeat at the hands of Peter Boeve`s Eredivisie strugglers.
Martin Haar and Luc Nijholt were in charge of team affairs for the visit to Zwolle and if they were looking for a steady start, they was made to re-think their plans just 60 seconds in, as Maarten Schops fired the home side in front.
Marino Promes netted twice as Zwolle were 3-0 up inside 30 minutes.
Two goals in a minute shortly before the interval by Arjan Bosschaart and Promes, his hat-trick, killed the game as a contest.
Kenneth Perez saved some face with a goal for AZ on 53 minutes, but Zwolle were never really tested.
