MOBILE, Ala. — The Baltimore Ravens have fired quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn after one season, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.
The former Washington Redskins head coach spent one season in Baltimore coaching Joe Flacco.
According to a source, Zorn wasn’t an ideal fit with the rest of the staff. Privately, he was often described as quirky or odd in terms of his coaching style.
Zorn had a strong background in the West Coast offense and close ties to Cleveland Browns team president Mike Holmgren. He’s expected to draw interest from teams.
When he wasn’t brought to the Senior Bowl this week and remained in Baltimore to huddle with coach John Harbaugh and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, it was regarded as a negative sign about his status.
Zorn replaced popular Ravens quarterbacks coach Hue Jackson, the new Oakland Raiders coach, last January when Jackson was hired as the Raiders’ offensive coordinator.
