As you know by now, the Kansas City Chiefs officially announced the hiring of Jim Zorn as quarterbacks coach. Zorn was in Baltimore last season working with Ravens QB Joe Flacco and, if I had to guess, Flacco would probably agree with this hire.
That's because at the end of January when Zorn was let go by the Ravens, Flacco made it known that he wasn't happy losing his quarterbacks coach.
"I'm disappointed and they know I'm disappointed," Flacco said. "I don't think it was a good decision, and they know that. I expressed that throughout the whole time it was going on, I expressed how much I didn't think it would be good for us. My opinion isn't going to change. I think Jim was a great coach, I think he was great for our team. I think he was great for me. That's how I feel about it."

To me, I take Flacco's words as a good sign for the Chiefs. It's important that QB Matt Cassel have a good relationship with the quarterbacks coach. We haven't heard any stories about Cassel having trouble working with coaches so my gut tells me it won't be a problem with Zorn.
