Ravens Fired Jim Zorn Because He Wasn't A Good Teacher

New, 1 comment

If you're a quarterbacks coach in the NFL, what is your job description exactly? You aren't calling any of the plays. You don't have to organize formations. You don't even have to shuffle a depth chart. So what is you are responsible for? The only thing I can think of is teaching. Teaching the quarterbacks on the roster how to be better quarterbacks. That's it.

So it's no wonder that the Ravens fired Jim Zorn as their QB coach because they felt he was an inadequate teacher, via Jamison Hensley and Mike Preston of Ravens Insider.

One of the major reasons why the Ravens fired quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn was his teaching methods, according to a league source. Ravens coach John Harbaugh and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron spent all day Tuesday questioning Zorn about how he was coaching quarterback Joe Flacco and were concerned about Zorn being insubordinate, the source added.

This isn't really all that surprising. We saw how much Jason Campbell progressed while Zorn was in charge.  So what was he doing there? If he wasn't doing a good job teaching Joe Flacco, he must have made one hell of a cup of coffee.
