Since being fired Jan. 4 by the Redskins after two seasons as their head coach, it was a rather short down time between jobs -- something Zorn told Redskins Insider Jason Reid he's grateful for.
"I'm very excited about having a job, No. 1, and then having a job with another excellent organization," Zorn said in a phone interview with Reid. "The Ravens were in the playoffs this year, and they're not losing too many guys, so I think it's just a really good situation to be in."
Zorn takes over for Hue Jackson, who left to become offensive coordinator of the Oakland Raiders. He was a quarterbacks coach with the Detroit Lions and Seattle Seahawks before being hired by the Redskins.
In a statement posted on their website about the hiring, Ravens coach John Harbaugh praised Zorn for playing successfully in the NFL for a long time and said he's impressed with the former Redskins coach as a person too.
"He knows what quarterbacks go through in this league," Harbaugh said. "He [Zorn] has been a quarterbacks coach, a head coach and he is familiar with our offense. That's a great résumé."
