It seems like every day we're hearing a new updates on the assistants that were on Romeo Crennel's coaching staff and are now seeking other jobs. The latest one involves Jim Zorn, who coached the quarterbacks in Kansas City last season.

Marc Trestman of course is now the Bears head coach (a team by Phil Emery, who used to work with Jim Zorn).
Zorn joined the Chiefs in 2011. After Haley was fired and Crennel began building his staff, Zorn reportedly wanted to be offensive coordinator. That job instead went to Brian Daboll. Zorn, under contract, stuck around last year as the quarterbacks coach. When Andy Reid hired his own offensive coordinator in Doug Pederson that told us what we needed to know about Zorn's future.
I don't have anything against Zorn. It's hard to judge how well he did in Kansas City given the quarterback situation.
Among other recent coaching updates are Nick Sirianni, the Chiefs receivers coach last year, joining the Chargers as offensive quality control coach. Jack Bicknell Jr., who coached the offensive line last year, saddled up with Todd Haley and the Steelers in Pittsburgh.
At least if Zorn goes to the CFL, Dan Snyder won't be tempted to hire him again. And then fire his GM because he allowed the Zorn hire to happen. (The Redskins everybody!)
