The Baltimore Ravens announced Saturday, that they have hired Jim Zorn, the ex-head coach for their local rivals, the Washington Redskins, as their new quarterbacks coach. The vacancy for the position came up about a week ago when the Oakland Raiders hired Hue Jackson, then the Ravens quarterbacks coach, to be their new offensive coordinator.
Jim Zorn was the head coach for the Washington Redskins for the past two seasons, and as a result of his 12-20 record with them, he was fired shortly after the regular season concluded. “He has been an NFL quarterback coach, NFL head coach and is familiar with our offense. That’s a great resume for us”, John Harbaugh said about the hiring of his new colleague.
