Ravens | Jim Zorn not a good teacher

Fri, 28 Jan 2011 08:46:32 -0800

One of the main reasons why the Baltimore Ravens fired quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn was his teaching methods, according to a league source, report Jamison Hensley and Mike Preston, of The Baltimore Sun. Head coach John Harbaugh and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron spent all day Tuesday, Jan. 25, questioning Zorn about how he was coaching QB Joe Flacco and were concerned about Zorn being insubordinate, the source added. Zorn's background never made him a great fit in the team's offensive system. Zorn spent all of his NFL career either playing or coaching in the West Coast offense, while the Ravens use more of a vertical game under Cameron.
