Jim Zorn gets fired again
By Dan Graziano
I thought former Washington Redskins coach Jim Zorn would be a good fit as the quarterbacks coach for the Baltimore Ravens. And by all accounts, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco had a tremendous relationship with Zorn.
But that didn't keep Zorn from getting fired Thursday after just one season. Apparently Ravens head coach John Harbaugh decided that offensive coordinatoor Cam Cameron needed to work directly with Flacco. And there's talk that Zorn was insubordinate to Cameron.
"We've talked about this since the end of the season, and we believe this will help improve our offense," Harbaugh said.
It seemed like Zorn was safe after surviving a seven-hour meeting with Harbaugh and Cameron last week. But obviously the Ravens changed their minds. Zorn was great to deal with when he was with the Redskins and hopefully he'll land a job quickly. But for now, he'll continue to get by on those paychecks from Dan Snyder.
