Jim Zorn has interviewed for the Alouettes job, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports.

Zorn was the Redskins’ head coach for two seasons, going 8-8 in 2008 and 4-12 in 2009. Since then he has spent one year as an assistant in Baltimore and two years as an assistant in Kansas City.

In addition to a long career playing quarterback for the Seahawks, Zorn played in one game in the CFL, with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

    he started 6-2 one year….

    and then they collapsed,

    a bit part bc of the weak crowds at fedex field, the old RFK would be rocking and stadium shook up !

    now the skins get a 14-0 lead in a playoff game and lose to an opposing rookie QB ,

    solution – Dan Snyder stop running the skins like a business and put the old faithful RFK type hog gibbs fans where they belong,

    fedex field in the middle of PG county?

    I’m not sure this would be a good move for the Al’s.

    So the guy with NFL head coaching experience goes to Canada and the guy with Canadian head coaching experience comes to the NFL

    Ah yes… that everpresent Jim Zorn “Wait… huh???” look. As a Skins fan, that look, complete with Jason Campbell’s “I just ate a bland ham sandwich” faceless expression, made it a VERY long two seasons.

    After that 6-2 start I remember thinking we had found our guy. It’s refreshing for a change to finally look forward than having to look back.

    I think Zorn is a good fit for the CFL where the rules favor passing.

    I’d like to see Glen Constantin get a shot after the success he has had at Laval.
