Jim Zorn Named Chiefs Quarterbacks Coach

When Todd Haley conducted a conference call with reporters during Super Bowl week announcing the promotion of offensive line coach Bill Muir to offensive coordinator, he hinted that more moves could be coming. We guessed that, if there was a move, it would be a quarterbacks coach. 

Indeed, it is a quarterbacks coach.

The Kansas City Chiefs announced Jim Zorn has been hired as quarterbacks coach.

Zorn, a former player, broke into the NFL coaching ranks in 1997 with the Seattle Seahawks. Most will remember him as the Washington Redskins head coach in the 2008 and 2009 seasons where he went 12-20. After he was let go in Washington, he made his way to Baltimore where he worked with Ravens QB Joe Flacco. The Ravens parted ways with him on January 27 of this year.

My early thoughts on the move: I like it a lot. Zorn has had success coaching quarterbacks and the Chiefs wanted someone who could be dedicated to working with QB Matt Cassel. Muir's history is with the offensive line so the Chiefs needed someone with a quarterback background to work with Cassel. 

We'll have more on him shortly but what are your initial thoughts about the move?
