After three tumultuous years, Jim Zorn is ready to get out of the Baltimore-Washington Metroplex.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the Ravens “released” Zorn from his contract after one year as their quarterbacks coach. (That’s a nice way of saying he was fired.)
“It was not a fit on either side” according to Schefter.
Zorn, who jumped to the Ravens after two years as the head coach with the Redskins, is expected to draw interest elsewhere immediately. His history with Mike Holmgren could make Zorn a natural fit in Cleveland.
There were rumblings in Baltimore that Zorn and Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron had difficulty co-existing. There seemed to be communication issues between Zorn, Cameron, and Joe Flacco.
UPDATE: The firing came after a seven-hour meeting between Zorn, Cameron, and Ravens coach John Harbaugh in which they questioned Flacco’s development this year, according to the Baltimore Sun.
