The Ravens have hired Jim Zorn as their quarterbacks coach, coach John Harbaugh told The Baltimore Sun on Saturday.
“Jim played successfully in the league for a long time,” Harbaugh said, “and certainly understands what an NFL quarterback goes through. He has been an NFL quarterback coach, NFL head coach and is familiar with our offense. That’s a great resume for us.”
Harbaugh added, “I’ve gotten to know Jim the last couple of years and I’m impressed with him as a person. He’s a good, kind and decent man. He’s an exciting addition to our staff.”
Certainly I’ve heard enough from my Redskins friends about how awful Mr. Zorn was in his capacity as Head Coach. But I think this could work out as a fine move.
Zorn was already a QB coach in Seattle where he helped advance the career of Matt Hasselbeck to franchise highs in passing. I think he may be able to help Joe get to thenext level in his development.
