Browns Considering Adding Jim Zorn to the Staff as OC?

The Baltimore Sun today reports that the Browns could take a long look at adding former Seahawks QB and Redskins coach Jim Zorn as an offensive coordinator to the team. Zorn was the Ravens QB coach in 2010. Here’s the story.

There are conflicting reports on whether Ravens quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn is a candidate for the Cleveland Browns’ offensive coordinator job.

A league source told The News-Herald in Northern Ohio that Zorn is in line for that position. Hours later, a source told The Cleveland Plain Dealer that Zorn isn’t a candidate.

Zorn has a strong connection with Browns president Mike Holmgren. He was the Seahawks quarterbacks coach from 2001 to 2007 when Holmgren was the head coach there.

Browns new coach Pat Shurmur will run the same West Coast offense that Holmgren did in Seattle, so Zorn would have a familiarity with the system. At his introductory news conference, Shurmur said he would initially call the plays.

    Very interesting stuff. Would anyone want to go to a rebuilding team and be the offensive coordinator without actually being able to call the plays however?

    If what Shurmur said about holding on to the play calling duty is true, then he should have kept his mouth shut if Zorn was a serious candidate. The Skins jerked him around in regard to playcalling toward the end of his tenure there. I would imagine he’d rather be on firm ground with playcalling if he took an OC job elsewhere.
